The Bea family's history in the Montefalco area dates to the 1500s, but only in the last 20 years or so have the wines blown up on the international stage. The tiny estate is the classic Italian fattoria, producing wine, raising farm animals for trade and home consumption, and working the land to produce olives, fruits, and vegetables. To this day, the Bea family raises and produces much of what they consume on a daily basis. The entire property encompasses 15 hectares: 5 of which are dedicated to the vineyards, 2 to olives, and the remainder to fruits, vegetables, and grains that are grown.
