Redmont-Di Tonno Estate

Redmont-Di Tonno Estate


Redmont-Di Tonno was born in 2001 out of the founders’ belief in Abruzzo as a wine region on the up, due to its thriving biodiversity and cultural authenticity. It is based in an estate originally founded by a group of local entrepreneurs, which has now been taken over completely by the current owners, Antonella Di Tonno and Rodrigo Redmont.

“Wine has become a family business and family passion, that has been proudly built on Italian entrepreneurial spirit and genuine hospitality,” says Antonella. “Today they are one family that operates and manages the various estates.”

The family set out to make a premium Italian wine with a commitment to sustainable winemaking and regenerative agriculture. Today, Antonella, Rodrigo and their team oversee over 75 hectares of vineyards, planted with Trebbiano, Chardonnay, Pecorino, Passerina, Pinot Grigio, Sangiovese and Montepulciano.

The town of Loreto Aprutino, where Redmont-Di Tonno made its home, is considered by experts to be one of Italy’s most prized terroirs, with production documented since the 10th century. It is also home to Europe’s first DOP Olive Oil, with its 28 historical cellars and oil mills in the old town.

The landscape around the estate has been shaped over millions of years by multiple glacial processes. At 300 meters above sea level, Loreto Aprutino sits close to a geomorphologic rarity: the Ghiacciaio del Calderone, the southernmost glacier in Europe and the only one in the central Mediterranean area. The origin of the name Loreto Aprutino itself can be found in ancient Roman texts and is credited to a forest of bay leaf trees that supposedly dominated the area back then.
