Tenuta Ulisse, a modern expression of a centuries-old tradition of passion and dedication to the land, is one of Abruzzo’s premier winemaking estate. It has aggressively dived into the enormous potential of Abruzzo’s unique terroir and ancient varieties by placing a contemporary spin on indigenous grapes such as Montepulciano D’Abruzzo, Trebbiano D’Abruzzo, Pecorino, Passerina e Cococciola.

These wines are the result of the passion and experience of Antonio and Luigi Ulisse, two brothers dedicated to expressing the potential and character of the region’s wines. Each glass from Tenuta Ulisse’s wine is a journey, an experience that amazes, a vision. «We are determined to use the most expressive and unique terroirs of Abruzzo to create Abruzzo fine wine of distinction».
