A story about the past,
a story about today

In the past, Ravenna was the magnificent capital of the Western Roman Empire. Today Ravenna has become one of the Mediterranean capitals in the shipbuilding and petrochemical sectors.

In the past, Ravenna was the magnificent capital of the Western Roman Empire. During Bacchanalia, the magister bibendi, chosen by throwing the dice, skilfully combined various types of wine, like the so-called “salty” or “salted” wines - which were obtained by mixing sun - dried grapes and sea water, before ageing, to accelerate the maturation process and to avoid acetification.


Today, Byzantine Ravenna has become one of the Mediterranean capitals in the shipbuilding and petrochemical sectors. It is a lively and dynamic city. Ravenna’s artistic and historical relevance combines with its economic prosperity. The renowned wineries located in this area produce Albana, Sangiovese, Pagadebit, Cagnina and other excellent varieties of wine from Romagna.


In 2010 Gianluca Grilli and Raffaele Ravaglia, both born and raised in Ravenna, had an insight. They started, with great determination and enthusiasm, a process
of research and oenological innovation. In collaboration with some skin divers from
Associazione Paguro, they sank the first series of Tenuta del Paguro wine cases in the artificial reef, at a depth of 25 metres. The cases were brought back to surface after the suitable ageing time was elapsed.

 
 
 

Now you know the story and you can be part of it, by tasting the wine from the underwater cellar of Tenuta Del Paguro.
