Founded in 1884, It was conceived by Prince Ugo Boncompagni Ludovisi as a wine “industry”: an imposing oenological complex, highly advanced for its age
The new owner
In 1954 Amilcare Pambuffetti, at 71, bought the Scacciadiavoli holding, where at the age of 14 he had worked as a farm hand.
The Family Story
Upon his death in 1977 his sons Alfio, Settimio and Mario continued the activities that had begun with their father.
In the year 2000 the Pambuffetti brothers (Francesco, Carlo, and Amilcare), the children of Settimio, in the name of an ancient tradition, decided to take the winery into their own hands - the oldest of its kind in the area.
Although the winery never stopped its production, the year 2000 saw the beginning of extensive renovations undertaken without modifying the original building- preserving all the historical architectural structures while introducing new technologies and modern machinery.
A few years ago the fourth generation of the family joined the activities (Amilcare, Iacopo, Liù, Romeo and Fiammetta). As it stands, the dimensions of the property are of 130 Ha of which 40 Ha are dedicated to grapevines. Current annual production is of around 250,000 bottles.
