Nostro padre aveva un’idea fissa, da anni: creare un grande vino bianco qui nel Piceno, una terra che fino ad allora era conosciuta fuori dai propri confini solo come produttrice di vini rossi corposi e generosi. Tutta la famiglia sapeva che papà stava facendo qualcosa di importante e di raro, si respirava nell’aria. Ma solo crescendo, anni dopo, abbiamo capito il motivo più profondo del suo entusiasmo: stava ascoltando la voce della sua terra. Qualcosa di unico che si trovava lì da sempre, ma era sepolto dalla dimenticanza. Si trattava di un antico vitigno autoctono italico scomparso da anni: il Pecorino. Con il suo recupero la nostra famiglia ha contribuito, in parte, a salvare un patrimonio di tipicità italiana, espressione di un Terroir e quindi di una serie di fattori unici ed irripetibili che hanno reso il vino Pecorino apprezzato nel mondo ed icona di un’intera comunità di viticoltori.

Our father, Guido Cocci Grifoni, for years had a determined, single vision to create a great white wine in the Piceno, a land known only as a producer of full-bodied and generous red wines. Our entire family knew our father was doing something important and rare, we could sense it in the air. But it was only years later, when we were older, that we understood the deeper reason for his enthusiasm: he was listening to the voice of his land. He had discovered something unique, something that was always there but had been buried by forgetfulness. This discovery was an ancient autochthonous grape variety that had disappeared for years: the Pecorino. The recovery of this grape variety, which our family has greatly contributed to, helped to both save an authentic Italian heritage and to express a pure vision of ‘terroir’. Now through a series of unique and now historical factors the Pecorino wine is appreciated by the world and is an icon for a large community of winemakers. Leading the wine estate of Tenuta Cocci Grifoni today, are the fourth generation of women from this family. Diana, the wife of Guido and the mother, is in charge of hospitality in the country house as well as overseeing the vineyards. Paola is the winemaker responsible for production and vinification. Marilena is the Commercial and Marketing Director for Italy and abroad.

Unser Vater hatte schon seit Jahren eine fixe Idee: Er wollte hier im Picenergebiet, in einem Terroir, das bisher über seine Grenzen hinaus lediglich für seine großzügigen Rotweine mit viel Körper bekannt war, einen großen weißen Wein kreieren. Wir alle in der Familie wussten, dass unser Vater an etwas Herausragendem und Wertvollem arbeitete, es lag in der Luft. Aber nur Jahre später, als wir größer waren, verstanden wir den wahren Sinn seiner Begeisterung: Er versuchte, etwas besonders Typisches seiner Heimat wieder zum Leben zu erwecken. Etwas Einzigartiges, das es dort schon immer gab, nun aber in Vergessenheit geraten war. Es handelte sich um eine sehr alte gebietsheimische italische Rebe, die seit Jahren verschwunden war: die Pecorino-Rebe. Durch die Rettung und Förderung dieser Rebsorte konnte unsere Familie mit dazu beitragen, einen Teil des Artenreichtums und somit den ganz besondere Charakter eines bestimmten Terroirs zu retten, der das Ergebnis einer Reihe von einzigartigen und anderenorts nicht nachvollziehbaren Faktoren ist und mit dazu geführt hat, dass der Pecorino-Wein weltweit geschätzt wird und zur Ikone einer ganzen Gemeinschaft von Weinerzeugern geworden ist.

  • We have recently stayed again at the apartment at Tenuta Cocci Grifoni, and tasted their wines yet again. I have to say the first time I tasted their wines 12 years ago, I thought they were good...

  • This is one of the most beautiful and peaceful places I have ever been to! It is the perfect place to rest the body and mind. Marta and the whole team were incredibly welcoming and made us feel at home right from the start. The food - what can I say, it is what you hope for when you go for vacation in Italy! It was always exceptional and the unique scenery adds a lot to the experience. Already for breakfast, you will be amazed by fresh and all local ingredients, highlighting the beauty of the region’s cuisine. The concept of the place with its sustainability really shows and love for detail can be found wherever you look. The feeling of the place is hard to put into words, go and experience it yourself! It is truly a hidden gem and I cannot wait to come back to this place. Thanks a lot for this unforgettable stay!
  • It's a lovely family establishment. Don't confuse it with sleek commercial operation like you'd find att bigger estates in the South African winelands of Franschhoek and Stellenbosch.
