OUR FEATURE CONVERSATION WITH LIU PAMBUFFETTI OF SCACCIADIAVOLI WINERY in UMBRIA
"Scacciadiavoli" means "Chase Away the Devil"
Scacciadiavoli is one of the oldest properties in Montefalco.
The name, Scacciadiavoli (from “scacciare” – to banish, and “diavoli” - devils), refers to an episode of exorcism in the 14th century . The story tells of a young woman possessed by the devil who was made to drink some local red wine by an exorcist, banishing the demon.
"You can banish your demons by drinking wines from the Sagrantino grape by Scacciadiavoli."
Over the last 135 years generations of winemakers have poured energy and passion into this land making a lasting mark on the territory. Montefalco and Sagrantino are now part of the DNA of Scacciadiavoli and the Pambuffetti family. It is a reality that began with Amilcare Pambuffetti and is now being carried on by the family’s fourth generation.
