Estate of Montegiove
The estate covers nearly 1200 hectares of stunning Umbrian countryside, where natural grown oak forests, vineyards, olive fields and arable land blend in total harmony with ancient dry walls and farmhouses built of local stone.
The principal products of the estate are Orvietano Rosso d.o.c. and Umbria Rosso i.g.t red wines, extravirgin olive oil, cereals, beef cattle, oil seeds, forage and forest products. There is also a Chianina cattle, the breed of white cows of the central Apennines, a denomination protected by I.G.P. status, the unique symbol of quality for fresh beef approved by the EU for Italy.
Exceptional in its pristine natural setting, the 800 hectares of woods are home to abundant wildlife such as wildboar and deer and the bountiful local flora includes specialties like truffles and mushrooms. At the surrounding land you will find marked trekking footpaths of various lengths and idyllic picnic sites, offering escape and relax away from the pulsating everyday stress of urban life.
The beautiful and bucolic environment make it hard to believe that Montegiove is only 17 km from Italy’s main motorway A1 (Milan – Naples), which also connects Rome and Florence, making it an ideal base for exploring the historical treasures of Umbria and Tuscany.
