Prelius was the ancient Maremma Toscana, an ancient salty lake where the Etruscans first and the Romans later used to produce salt and breed fishes. The floods of the Ombrone river have filled the Prelius lake and created the fertile soil of the Maremma Toscana. Here is where the Benedictine Monks have established their Abbey and started to grow grapes, more precisely in the district of Prile, the modern name of Prelius exactly where we grow our vines.
