About us

Company details

At the beginning of the year 2000, Nonno Mario’s grand passion for wine growing was officially passed down to his grandchildren, who lovingly created the Al Molino Gualtieri Organic Farm situated at the foot of the Rocca Ripesena tuff hillock, a few kilometres from the picturesque town of Orvieto, Thence the name “Altarocca”, which denotes the close connection between the farm and the surrounding land.

The dedication and passion of the Altarocca Winery in respect to this territory drove us to become organic, for which we obtained certification in 2016. Ours was an ethical choice combined with the genuine wish to adopt an approach, by which human intervention follows the biological rhythm of nature and no systemic products or phytopharmaceuticals are used. Altarocca has also always been involved in the initiatives for the protection of typical regional wines and quality improvement programs for grapes and winemaking techniques. We are proud to offer a quality brand made with passion, dedication and care.
