When Carlo Tabarrini was four, his father and Grandfather would bring him into the vineyards (where he was sometimes allowed to drive the tractor). They made wine for family consumption and grew grapes to sell. After school, Carlo began work in a chocolate factory, but always dreamed of the vineyards. In 2008, he started Cantina Margo, and from 2016 until now it has been his sole focus. He began with 0.5 hectares from abandoned or neglected vineyards in the South of Enea (Umbria), and has grown to now manage close to 3. He loves working in a traditional way with the use of modern winemaking equipment and technology kept to a minimum. We fell in love with Carlo’s wines that are simply honest, delicious wines from the heart of Umbria.
