In the Marches' countryside the wine-grapes growing finds particularly favourable climatic and ambient conditions so the results are excellent. This aspect is highlighted also by the ancient presence of this cultivation in the territory and by the fact that the grape-growing is deeply rooted in local culture.

In the Marches the wine is the main cultivation, as a matter of fact it occupies 23 hectares of land and the 48 % of them is on the registers of the vineyards for the production of Controlled Denomination of Origin (DOC) wines.

The grape-growing spread here is typically hilly and expands on the hill ridges overlooking the valleys of the 13 rivers which pass through the region and go down from the Apennine to the Adriatic Sea. As a matter of fact the 53 % of the Marches' territory is characterized by hills, gentle and undulating slopes sheltered by winds, bright and good sunny.

It is possible to get a high quality final product thanks to optimal lighting and heating due to an ideal hilly altitude together with the suitable features of the land which is clayey, sand and partly calcareous.

There are also examples of mountain grape-growing, part of an old culture today rarely used: in the area of the Piceno, on the Sybilline Mountains, especially in Amandola and Montefortino, an important viticultural and wine activity was widespread since from the XV and XVI centuries.

Also Pecorino native grapevine has been rediscovered in the highlands near Arquata del Tronto where there are older than 100 years plants.
