Cantina Tollo is located in the Italian village of Tollo in the region of Abruzzo. The origins of the business, which sprang from need, are firmly rooted in local history. The wine growers may have had neither name nor lineage but produced a wine that merited a position alongside more aristocratic vintages. The ancient tradition of winemaking in this part of the country is inseparably linked with the plight of the southern peasant farmers who were poor and owned just enough land to provide for the immediate family. The requirement to earn enough to live led to a solution in grapes and wine. One could say that their wine was truly life giving.
