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 nuns organically work vineyards, orchards, and gardens (certified by teh Associazione Suolo e Salute since 1993). Under the guidance of consulting winemaker Giampiero Bea, they produce wines as honest, sympathetic, and gracious as they are.
