Wine and Olive oil
In our philosophy, the production of wine is connected to the wine tasting experience.
Our Company, our home, is not a closed environment in a warehouse. It is a work in progress production, open to suggestions, new ideas, new cultures.
All of our production is made following the strict rules of biological production.
In San Lorenzo we produce a total of 9 different wines and a an Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
For over six centuries on these hills have always flourished vineyards and matured precious grapes.
Our mission is to maintain an ethic of respect for the values of the past, centered on supporting nature and defending the plant and the soil.
We have been cultivating and producing completely organically for many years thanks also to extraordinary unique conditions, typical only of this soft hill located south of Mount Subasio. The richness of the terroir and microclimate create the optimal conditions to transmit the necessary nutrients to the grapes, giving us many varieties of different grapes with a unique taste and quality.
The wind plays a fundamental role in our work, thanks to the constant breeze of our area, the vineyards remain healthy, limiting the proliferation of diseases favored by humidity.
The harvest is carried out entirely by hand, the harvested bunches are selected and placed in small boxes, limiting the stress of the fruit and keeping the organoleptic properties intact. The pressing takes place within two hours of harvesting, avoiding overheating of the musts, thus controlling them only in our barrels at a constant temperature.
Starting from this public act of 1375, the vocation of the vineate lands of San Lorenzo di Rapecchiano is certified.
Foligno 1375 May 20, a plot of land in the word Rapecchiano, borders, among other things, with the property of the monastery.

Our flagship is the San Lorenzo Red Wine, we started this kind of production back in 1998.
Today the San Lorenzo red wine is made out of three different grapes, Cabernet, Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

Umbria Region is well know all over the world for our Olive Oil production.
In San Lorenzo we made the Millenario, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, produced by centuries-old Moraiolo olive trees.
The olives are picked at the end of the year, when the olive live did not turn black yet, starting in October.
