Enoteca Saputi is founded – a wine shop that soon becomes a wine tasting landmark for old and new clients alike; here one discovers the engaging and heartwarming story of the Saputi family and their world class products.


The Cantina, having maintained its natural and eco-sustainable production, becomes a certified organic wine producer.


Saputi’s passion for wine making finally becomes recognized at international level; the Awards won at International Competitions will flourish in the years to come.


The year of the shift to a Family Company. This year also saw the construction of new buildings such as the barrique cellar and the agricultural shed; the modernization of winemaking processes through new systems like Ganimede, and the implementation of a new wine press.


A year full of events: Leonardo and Andrea progressively start taking part in the canteen management and their little sister Giulia is born. In the meantime, the business grows and expands into foreign markets.        This period also saw the creation of Villa le Vigne, a polyvalent facility created to host visitors and wine connoisseurs. Today it is the preferred stage for the promotion of wines, combined with dishes of well-known regional Chefs.


Alvaro Saputi, Adriano’s son, takes over the management of the Cantina and puts many important changes in place to improve productivity, such as the commercial release of the first bottles of the Doc Rosso Piceno and Colli Maceratesi in 1985 - the white Colli Maceratesi will obtain the classification of Ribona, especially thanks to Alvaro’s constant effort and motivation. He was one of the first and major promoters of the idea to create a group of producers that work together to foster this indigenous vine type.


The canteen needs to expand, so a new Casa Vinicola is built next to the existing one, which is still in use today and is home to the winemakers headquarter.


The start of a story of wine: Angelo Saputi, viticulturist, directs his son Adriano towards the winemaker profession.
