The Ciu’ Ciu’ farm was founded in 1970 by Natalino Bartolomei and Anna Maria Iobbi and it is not far away from Offida, a medieval village that is rich on traditions. Today the brothers Massimiliano and Walter, thanks to the passion and experience of their father Natalino, continue the job of vine-growing. The farm, in the centre DOCG Offida production area, has a vineyard of 180 ha. In the striking and charming Marche’s Hills the time seems to be stopped to tell everyone the history and its origins. A little ancient world where the past lives in the presents and the solidity of its traditions blends with the strength of the innovations in the continuous search of the quality. In this environment the farm Ciù Ciù matured its conviction that the wine must be the most authentic expression of the origin’s territory. This is the production’s philosophy of the farm. In the family run business firm works a group of technicians that has the aim to restore the oenology and the wine heredity of the wines of Marche. The vineyard growing systems that have low environmental as well as biological impact made the Ciù Ciù wines famous in the local and international market.
