Villa Padrone was built towards the end of the 18th century by a Baron from Piemonte in search of his dream – to own olive groves and to produce olive oil. His dream came true when he fell in love with the location and built Villa Padrone. He then set about planting his olive groves and eventually lived here year round. His son then planted and developed the vineyards producing good quality wine and later a dessert wine was added that was sold to the Vatican. In 1930 the villa was bought by the present owner’s family and has been passed down to several generations.
