The history of Count Saladini Pilastri dates back to the year 1000; a noble family from Ascoli Piceno that boasts of a rich and fascinating past whose ancestors were priests and leaders. The deep antique roots of the family are a heredity for the present; it is a heredity of long lives of tradition over the centuries of history. The vineyard activity has always coincided with the value and culture of the land from which it belongs. Count Saladini Pilastri’s farm began three centuries ago; the land has always produced wine. Originally the tenant farmers gave up their wine to the Counts so they could age it in the so called ”barriques”, the famous durmast barrel. From the 1970’s new vines were planted; the present canteen was constructed beside the old one so that all the production could be kept in the same place. The Saladini Pilastri winery binds the knowledge of an antique tradition with the guarantee of advanced technology. It is a matter of fact the vines born on this small hanker chief of Marche land are exported to America, Europe and Asia and they are appreciated by the most sophisticated tastes. The flavour of this wine unites the perfumes and colours of its land; the care with which it is produced and the knowledge of an antique art.
