The wines of Monastero Suore Cistercensi are made by the Sisters of the Cistercian order who live and work at their monastery in Vitorchiano, ninety minutes or so north of Rome in the Lazio district. Here at this quiet religious outpost eighty women of this religious order work vineyards and orchards and gardens organically. Under the guidance of consulting winemaker Giampiero Bea, they produce two wines as honest and sympathetic and gracious as they are.
