Renè Schneider, ‘L’Ombrie’, 1907
“ Italy’s most beautiful features meet in fabulous Umbria, as if it were a gift” from a supreme artist”
CASTELLO DI MONTEGIOVE
Nestled in the peaceful hills of Umbria, among the most poetic of Italian landscapes, the castle of Montegiove has existed since the early 13th century and for the last four centuries it has been the property of the Marquises Misciattelli. Today, it is the centre of a wonderful estate covering nearly 1200 hectares of beautiful Umbrian countryside, including a busy farm, winery and an exclusive and luxurious country house. Thanks to a continuous, demanding but fascinating project of restoration and renovation pursued by the owners, this idyllic, rustic scene has changed little since its glorious beginning.

Marquis Paolo Misciattelli Mocenigo Soranzo writes:
“The cellars of the Castle of Montegiove are not a large scale industrial plant, but those of a large farm where the owners for generations have adopted progressive farming practices and perfected their wines and vineyards.”
