The Terracruda winery has a recent origin, but is inspired by an age-old
passion. The project was first conceived by three partners, who had a
good nose for business and felt motivated by the potentials of an area
where wine production was mainly controlled by family run wineries.
Without forgetting tradition but with a forward-looking approach, they
started up in 2000 with the purchase of more than 20 hectares of
vineyards, of which 10 were already planted with indigenous varieties,
while the remaining 10 were replanted with local varieties, the Aleatico
in particular, used for the production of the Pergola CDO wine.
Winemaking however only started 2005 when Terracruda came into operation
under supervision of the oenologist Giancarlo Soverchia, in a new high-tech facility that was intended to combine tradition with innovation.
