VILLA OPPI, also known as Castello degli Oppi, started its activity as an ancient Roman Post Station (a place where travelers could stop for refreshments, change horses and refresh themselves) about 2000 years ago, thanks also to its strategic position along the road Emilia, halfway between Parma and Piacenza.
The “Posta” service continued until the early 1800s, when Maria Luigia of Austria (Second Wife of Napoleon Bonaparte) Duchess of Parma and Piacenza, used to stop for a refreshment during the summer, during the frequent trips from Parma to Piacenza.
The Duchess, looking for a private home, decides to acquire the property as a private home to be used mainly in the summer and also because it is halfway between the Ducatis.
Villa Oppi has always been oriented towards limited productions with high organoleptic value,
Thanks to the selection of the bunches one by one, and the complete control of the production cycle from the vineyard to the cellar up to the refinement first in barrique and then in the bottle, guarantees quality excellent in each of its products.
Villa Oppi wines are characterized by the high organoleptic profile and the methods of harvesting, vinification and raising aimed at creating a high quality product suitable not only for connoisseurs but, in general, for all lovers of good wine.
