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. Here you can really feel the influence of the massif mountain that gives its name to the park, and even though only 35 km far away there is the sea its mitigation effect is almost absent.

The origin of the name is to be attributed to a wine that was originally produced in Malta. It was a valuable product traded by Venice merchants. The several grape varieties named Malvasia often only have in common the name, deriving from the Greek city of the Peloponnese Monenbasia which means “port with a single entrance”, a city that, by assonance with the Greek city name, was renamed by the Venetians “Malvasia”.

This Malvasía has delicate aromas of tropical fruit and a hint of jasmine flowers. On the palate it is fresh, savoury, intense and full-bodied. It goes well with seafood, medium-aged cheeses, structured first courses and white meats.

About the Winery

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.
