Wineries in Abruzzo

Cooperative wineries have always had a prominent role in Abruzzo, gathering small growers and accounting for the vast majority of the total wine output. While quantity has been their main focus for a long time, some of them have proved capable of producing high quality wine in the last twenty years.
On the other hand, the region has always housed a few large and internationally renowned private wineries and some long-running producers who make high quality, small-production wines that have achieved cult status among connoisseurs. In recent years, an ever-increasing quantity of young individuals has followed in their footsteps, bringing new energies to the regional production scene.
