Sciarra has been producing wine recognized around the world since 1850 including its celebrated Montepulciano d’Abruzzo and Trebbiano d’Abruzzo. Sciarra’s history dates back to 1225 when Saint Francis visited Antonio, son of Riccardo of Acquaviva and laid the foundation for the creation for the Saint Francis of Assisi monastery. Here the monks cultivated the noble vines and created wines that achieved critical acclaim. Sciarra also offers IGT and DOCG wines from other regions including Marches and Tuscany (Chianti).
