Presentation of the estate:
Since 1850, the Renucci estate has been passed down from father to son, without interruption. In 1855, Monsignor Ange-François Renucci, owner of part of the "Prove" vineyard, offered his rosé to convents and churches in the region to celebrate mass, a tradition that continued until 1960.
A lover of travel and horses, Bernard Renucci took over the exploitation of the estate in 1991. This young winegrower decided to equip his cellar with a modern vat room allowing him to better control the vinification process.
A victim of his own success, he then decided to restructure 4 new hectares, to meet the growing demand. Three years ago, he extended his range by creating a Vignola vintage made from a strict plot selection.
