Who we are

Fattoria le Terrazze
Wine producers at Monte Conero since 1882

The story of Fattoria Le Terrazze goes back to 1882 when the winery was established on the hills surrounding Numana. Since the late nineteenth century, the Terni family has been growing Montepulciano grapes and transforming them into wine.

Under the guidance of winemaker Federico Curtaz, Antonio and Georgina Terni today produce around 90,000 bottles per year from their 16 hectares of vineyards.

The Conero is a particularly interesting area for red wines. Its most typical product is in fact Rosso Conero, available both as a DOC wine and as the Sassi Neri DOCG Reserve.

In addition to Rosso Conero, Fattoria Le Terrazze also produces IGT Chaos, a wine resulting from a blend of Montepulciano, Syrah and Merlot, Chardonnay Le Cave, Pinkfluid rosé and Donna Giulia, a sparkler made entirely from Montepulciano grapes.

Furthermore, the estate produces extra-virgin olive oil of excellent quality from their olive groves of the Frantoio, Leccino and Pendolino varieties which surround the estate..

Our Story


Giacomo Terni purchases the estate and names it Fattoria Le Terrazze. He builds a three-storey building constructed with stone from the Conero, to accomodate a cellar, a barn and a silkworm breeding premises.


Gilberto Terni runs the estate with the collaboration of his first manager Reginaldo Fenili and later with Fenili’s son Giacomo.


Paolo Terni inherits the estate and transforms it from the old share-cropping system to direct farming.


Paolo Terni, together with other local farmers, participates in the creation of the Rosso Conero DOC. Fattoria Le Terrazze plants new vineyards and begins to produce bottled wines.


The present wine-making cellar is built and together with the aid of modern equipment, it became possible to upgrade the quality of the wines. At the same time, with the collaboration of Carlo Pigini, Antonio creates Donna Giulia, the first Metodo Classico made entirely from Montepulciano grapes.
