The family of Poderi San Lazzaro
The history of the Podere San Lazzaro winery starts with Lorenzo Capriotti, Paolo’s father, who after years of hard work was able to purchase a farm in the hills of Offida, and started plating vineyards of Montepulciano, Sangiovese and Passerina grapes. Paolo Capriotti, with his wife Elisetta, took over in 2003, carrying on the family tradition with a modern winemakiing facility, and is recognized both in Italy and abroad for the quality of his wines. In subsequent years, more varietals-including Pecorino, Grenache and more Passerina-were planted in the area around the winery.
In order to produce quality wines that fully reflect the characteristics of its territory requires a strict adherence to nature’s cycles.With this objective in mind, the organic winemaking process was adopted in the vineyards as well as in the cellar, allowing the maturation of the grapes to run their natural course.
We currently have 8 hectares of vineyards, located at an altitude ranging from 290 slm to 293 meters above sea level and divided into estates, each with a precise profile that considers the soils, exposure and microclimate.
