, in the province of Ancona, set in an estate of 18 hectares and surrounded by olives, ancient trees and vineyards, stands the Villa Bianchi
. Here, in the heart of the production area of Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi
, the Bianchi family
used to vinify the grapes from the vineyard
which bears its name.
Refurbished in the year 2000, it has retained the look of the typical Marche farmhouse.
Built on two levels connected by a covered outside staircase, it features perimeter walls which go back to the middle of the 19th century, built of stones and materials of river origin, as was the practice in rural buildings of the period along the valley of the river Esino
On the ground floor, where the cellars and the animal stalls stood, rooms have been built for wine-tasting and for receiving Umani Ronchiís guests. The upper floor, as in the original farmhouse, houses the kitchen, the bedrooms and the services. The 700 square metre garden, shaded by pines and oaks and facing onto the Marche hills, replaces the old peasant farmyard. In summer it becomes the ideal setting for events and entertaining.
