“Trebbiano” comes from the Italian word “trebbiare”, meaning harvesting. It used to be the white wine that the farmers drunk while harvesting grain under the summer sun of a warm and flowering Abruzzo. We have tried to close into a bottle all these summer smells and colours, hoping to share with you the simplicity of a wonderful land.
About the brand
The history of Vigneti Radica goes back to the 1950’s when the late grandfather Rocco (known in the village as Zi’ Rock) established his first wineyard in Tollo. Rocco believed strongly in the potential of Abruzzo’s wine, and was one of the founders of the farmers’ cooperative established in Tollo to produce local wine.
Rocco’s son Antonio worked next to him in the vineyards throughout his youth, and learned the secrets of winemaking. In 2009 Antonio with his sons, Giacomo and Rocco Jr, established their own family winery to create great wines from the Radica vineyards and to share this passion with enthusiasts of good wine.
Their winery has a local nickname – Li Ture, which means ‘The Bull’ and to be loyal to the tradition they proudly chose this strong animal to be the symbol of Vigneti Radica.
