Improve the quality and the quantity of products
In the last century the cellar moved its location three times. The first cellar was situated in the family's sixteenth century palace in Osimo. Severely damaged during the Second World War, it was closed and rebuilt in Numana's farm, where it was expanded and equipped with the best winemaking equipment of the times.
Since 2001, a new 1400m2 underground cellar, capable of aging hundreds of thousands of bottles and improving the quality and availability of products, was built at the large farmhouse Svarchi, in Marina II^2, near the homonymous village of Numana. Overlooking a vineyard of 16 hectares of Rosso Conero Doc (Montepulciano grapes), the farmhouse has been transformed in a store and a tasting room where customers can try and buy all of Conte Leopardi’s products. The future plan is to enlarge the farmhouse creating rooms and a small restaurant for our customers.
Caring for the environment
Tradition joins modernity and Hi-Tec. Conte Leopardi’s cellar is covered in solar panels and uses only eco-friendly machineries, supporting the vineyard’s health and growth.
"...the engine of our winery!"
We use to consider our vineyards as the engine of the winery. Everything we do in the cellar depends on the result of our work in the vineyards
We grow excellent indigenous and international grape varieties, to obtain important wines that are strongly linked to our territory.

The process starts with the wintry pruning, followed by the binding, the fertilization, the summer green pruning, the suckering, plant health treatments and finally, the grape harvest.e grape harvest.
