About the Winery

Azienda Agricola Jasci

Located on the hills that rise 250 meters above sea level from the Adriatic Sea just above the seaside resort town of Vasto in Abruzzo, here the Jasci family has been growing grapes and producing wine for three generations. Starting In the early 1960s, Pasquale and Maria turned the focus of their farm to producing estate wines.


In 1980, their son Giuseppe decided to convert the farm to organic, becoming one of the first ten wineries in all of Italy to be certified. Today led by grandson Donatello Jasci and his wife Piera, the family is the second largest single grower in all of the region. Donatello’s approach in the cellar is consistent with his farming: clean and simple. The wines see little or no oak and have a purity of flavor that is rare at the price. In addition to his duties at the winery, Donatello Jasci has served as President of the local Organic Growers’ Consortium.

Fabulas

Fabulas is a collaboration between a group of farmers, friends and a fabulous winemaker. The vineyards of Fabulas winery are located in the municipality of Pretoro (602 m a.s.l.) in the Majella National Park. Even though the vinelands are only 35km away from the Adriatic sea, its influence is almost entirely blocked by the mountain ranges that surround the property. Although Abruzzo is a wine region often misunderstood, Fabulas, along with a few other noteworthy producers, have been elevating Abruzzo wines through quality growing practices and stellar winemaking.

The wines of Fabulas and their labels represent a journey through history, traditions and values – their collection of seven low-intervention wines are inspired by the local folklores of Abruzzo, each bottle portrays one of the seven women warriors who once gracefully served the region.
