What to expect

Terra Argillosa was born in 2007 as the PS Winery from the meeting of two cultures: Italian and American. In 2018 it became Terra Argillosa, a family project carried out by Raffaele Paolini and his wife Sara and which looks at the local culture, the history of sharecropping in the Marches of the 20th century, the traditions of the grandparents and the culture of the territory as objectives to be followed and carried out. It is a project in continuous evolution that aims at organic wine as continuous improvement and respect for the terroir, but also at the subsistence economy, the countryside that does not waste but reuses, the care of resources and land. Also, for this reason, you will be welcomed by a small vegetable garden and a few hens that happily scratch in the farmyard. Today Terra Argillosa is a reality that looks to the past for clues on how to understand and live in the future in a better way.

In the cellar you will be welcomed as a person who comes to visit to taste the organic wine, learn about its history and its origin, see the vineyards and follow the seasonal work necessary to produce the white and red wines related to the territory and the small international news that have proven to adapt very well in Offida.


Experience

According to the interests of the guests and the time available, the visit will include a brief history of the winery, an explanation of the philosophy of the producers, a guided wine tasting and a walk around the winery and/or the vineyards. The precise itinerary depends on your personal interests.

Walking around the winery in groups, you will see the various phases of the winemaking process and you will taste wine from both the steel and wooden barrels. If you choose to visit the vineyards (less common but a more fully engaging experience), you will learn about the manual labor required for wine production, the classification of the plants, the soil and much more.

The tasting will take place in an area of the winery with a stunning panoramic view, so beautiful in fact that guests often wish to remain in this area longer than originally planned, walking out on the terrace to enjoy the view from outside. Once again, the tasting program is very customizable to fit your desires.
