Zaccagnini produce excellent quality, great value wines from traditional Abruzzese varieties Trebbiano and Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, their "twig wines", named so for the distinct bottle neck decoration are amongst the best know Italian wines in Australia.
The winery was founded in 1978 under the name Fattoria Zaccagnini in the village of Bolognano. Back then, only one thousand bottles of wine per year was the average production. A growing reputation led to the need for expansion, and in 1984 the winery moved their operations to Contrada Pozzo in the centre of the Zaccagnini estates - annual production is now over 500,000 bottles.
Marcello, the dynamic director of the operation, has been introduced sustainable ecologically-sensitive practices such as using minimal irrigation, reducing use of SO2 in winemaking and planting forests of oak to offset COs emissions produced by wine fermentation.
