We are located on the edge of the Majella National Park in the centre of the Abruzzo region of Italy, in the foothills known as the green heart of Europe.

The most common image of Abruzzo is of a mountainous landscape,
made of rocks, cliffs, forests and meadows. However, although the
Abruzzo we speak of is hilly, it has the undeniable charm of the clay on
which were built ancient villages which now represent authentic
open-air museums such as the medieval towns of San Valentino in A.C., Abbateggio, Salle and Citta Sant' Angelo.

Just at the foot of the Majella Mountain, on a gentle hill, rises San Valentino in A.C. where the Fattorie Rose Rosse estate lies, immersed in a beautiful natural landscape and ancient archeology.

For more than 50 years, the Ceccomancinis have managed the family vineyard business, harmoniously blending tradition, experience, and innovation. Now two family members, Marco and Nicola, are involved in the company's activities. They have inherited the patrimony of their predecessors, animated by a passion for activities that demand marked professionalism and competence.

Starting from February until early April the vines need to be pruned and the vineyard need to be prepared for the spring blooming and summer growth.

During the months of June and July the vineyards need to be thinned out.

Depending on grape variety and of course from the season, grape harvesting could start as early as end of August and last until mid-October.

In the winery work is required throughout the year.

In the Estate there are also more than 200 olive trees, hence help could be required during the pruning period (February to late April) and during harvesting season, which starts at the end of October and could last until December.

The family own three villas, one on the Estate and two very close by. In those there will be double and single bedrooms. Food will be provided for free and guests are welcome to have meals together with our family members.

The Estate and the accomodations are very close to the beach in Pescara and to the ski resort on Majella (Passolanciano and Campo di Giove) and on Gran Sasso (Campo Imperatore).
