Ausonia Winery is located 270 meters above the sea level embraced at the West side by the Gran Sasso Massif, with its almost 3000 meters is the highest peak of the Apennines and the Adriatic Sea at the East side.
Exactly Ausonia is located in Atri in the province of Teramo, an ancient city built on hills overlooking the coast of the current Roseto degli Abruzzi, Pineto and Silvi. Atri is well connected with Pescara and the coastal area.
The hillside location offers a very suitable microclimate for grape growing, late spring is characterized by a temperate climate with good rainfall, the long summer days are often enlivened by a fresh breeze with a good temperature range between day and night. Often during the winter our vineyards spend a few days wrapped in a white layer of snow that protects them from cold winds from the East. In the same period the vineyards are ideal for grazing small flocks of sheep herders in the area that will ensure the control of weeds and enrich the soil with high organic matter, generously given by these woolly guests.
