Our Naviganti wine brand tells the story of our homeland, a place deep in the heart of Italy, in the Abruzzo region, between the Adriatic Sea and the Majella massif. The vines dedicated to producing this wine are aspected mainly east and south east, on hills rolling down towards the coast. The sun, the Mediterranean climate, the clay-based soils, caressed by sea breezes that sweep away humidity thus nurturing the growth of native regional DOC and PGI vines are the foundation of full-flavoured local wines.
Naviganti wines are produced from grapes selected across the district and aged with skill by our winemakers, flying the flag for an entire area, not simply part of it.
The Abruzzo hills that lie between the outlets of the River Sangro and the River Sinello are the crowning glory of a verdant coastline.
The beaches and cliffs are dotted with the famous “trabocchi” fishing platforms, and a sequence of natural ports that support fishing and trade relations, while fertile terrain has attracted settlers and fostered the cultivation of native vines.
The area vaunts extensive, significant traces of human presence here, dating back to Neolithic times, including relics of the Italic and Roman periods. In the Middle Ages, the district became home to lay and religious communities that remained despite various occupiers, the last being the Bourbons, preceding the Unification of Italy.
The “Italic spirit” that spurred Italian merchant navigators is our legacy, and our aim is to make our wine the flagship that promotes our homeland, this nook of our Abruzzo and our Italy. We pursue our mission along the most ancient and important routes mapped out by Italian seafarers of every era.
