Tradition, beauty, quality of life


Commonly known as "the green heart of Italy”, the Umbria region is famous for its lush vegetation and being a green paradise all year round. Located right at the center of Italy, Umbria borders Tuscany and Lazio and is 1 and 1/2 hours drive from both Florence and Rome. The region offers a spectacular combination of art, nature and spirituality, along with ancient traditions that have endured throughout the centuries. Thousands of hectares of beautiful rolling hills dotted with century-old towns and villages, churches and art galleries make Umbria a tourist favorite. The region’s cities such as Perugia, Assisi, Orvieto, Spoleto, Spello are treasure-troves of art and history. Assisi, a world-renown religious and spiritual centre, is a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2000.

Agriculture is one of the principal sectors of the Umbrian economy, with olives, grapes, wheat, and tobacco production leading the list of commodities produced in the region. With a population density among the lowest in Italy, Umbria’s approximately 900,000 citizens inhabit 8,456 square kilometers of unspoiled landscape. The area’s relatively sparse population helps maintain the landscape’s natural beauty and is the basis for a harmonious and special relationship between man and nature.

Our Family


The Fasola Bologna family has been living in the Castello di Monte Vibiano Vecchio since 1892; passionate about agriculture from the early decades of the twentieth century the Fasola Bologna produce wine and oil. In 1960, the farm underwent a major modernization project, led by Andrea Fasola Bologna; in 1998 his son Lorenzo Fasola Bologna, the current CEO of the company, decided to resume the winemaking and family tradition and create a new winery able to compete on the wine markets and a cutting-edge mill; all with the help of his sister, Maria Camilla.

Some wines are named after the members of the family such as L'Andrea, the most important red wine of the company, Maria Camilla, a White Umbria IGP, the Maryam, a rosé which takes its name from the wife of Lorenzo Fasola Bologna.

Our Winery


Fourty hectares of peaceful vineyards surround the castle of Monte Vibiano and are are tended to by experienced and dedicated vinters. We are very proud of our new, state-of-the-art winery, just completed in April 2003. Our new, computer controlled stainless steel tanks 48 in all maintain the correct temperature throughout the entire winemaking process. In addition, Monte Vibiano uses over 300 French oak barrels to age the wine.

This modern facility produces some of the best central Italy wines.

Our Olive Oil Production


Fully computerized, using state of the art technology to develop an oxygen-free environment, the mill produces the full line of Monte Vibiano olive oils, known around the world as “liquid gold.”

Our bottling and packaging site is linked to the production site by underground pipelines.
