“We first met in 2004 with a shared passion for wine and the extraordinary beauty of this ancient land, Abruzzo. Both strongly tied to Italy, Antonella and I envisioned a piece of land here in Loreto Aprutino, where we could further plant our cultural roots with a vineyard, an olive tree orchard and a home. In 2007 we harvested our first vintage. Today, we source grapes and olives from leased properties in three distinct villages: Loreto Aprutino, Collecorvino and Città Sant’Angelo to offer to enthusiastic patrons. We named our estate, Ilauri, for the inhabitants of our village. Coming from a hilltop covered in bay trees, Loreto Aprutino, was originally called Lauretum, coming from the Latin term for laurel grove or bay tree.” – Rodrigo Redmont
