   About Bosco Nestore 

     At the end of the XIX Century, when the young Giovanni Bosco began to cultivate vines, the city of Castellamare Adriatica (that became Pescara in 1926) has no more than 15,000 inhabitants and extended on a narrow land. All around was the landscape and the "lovers hill" of Pescara were a fertile ground for vines: strong and tenacious as the vine, Giovanni finally obtained a wonderful red wine with an intensive bouquet and a spicy taste, that, once named Montepulciano D'Abruzzo, would have been known all over the world in the following century. It was 1897 and Bosco Winery was born.

     The story went on with Nestore Bosco and his son Giovanni: The same names and the same passion for vines and wines. Since 1968, following the D.O.C given to the Montepulciano D'Abruzzo wine, Bosco's wines became well-known all over the world gaining several awards during the last decades.

     Believing in high quality products allows the winery to become bigger: Unfortunately the hills of Pescara weren't able to receive new vineyards because the city was expanding itself. Bosco family could make only a forced choice: moving towards the inland, choosing the most fertile soils, making new vineyards to produce only high quality grapes, building a winery that could improve the capabilities of the native vines of the Abruzzi. It was the beginning of the 80's and Giovanni, with the help of his son Nestore and his daughter Stefania, realized on the landscape of Nocciano, a town in the Province of Pescara, the spectacular winery that is a jewel among the underground architecture: here the Montepulciano D'Abruzzo, the pride of the Bosco family, rests and matures into big barrels from Slovenia, new barriques and in bottles perfectly aligned along the special tunnels for aging. A tradition, those of the Bosco family, intended to go on with the new generation that wears the same names and shows the same fervent enthusiasm.
