Wine Bigi family history began in 1880 with a man named Luigi Bigi, by which the region of Orvieto became known throughout Italy and abroad. The estate, once owned by the monastery La Trinita, is located in a very picturesque area on a hill of volcanic origin. Orvieto area has long been characterized by a unique microclimate, so for centuries here cultivated cultivation of the vine, which has begun the Etruscans. The first documentary evidence of this dates back to 1292. 3 years after the official was established a special committee called "Keepers of the vineyards", designed to monitor the preservation of quality vines. And ingenuity oenologist in Orvieto has led to the rapid development of technology - construction of underground galleries, using the techniques of pressing the berries at ground level.
