This beneficial environment was known already in the first century, when Pliny The Yonger chose the area for his farms and vineyards. The main house stands right in the middle of the estate. It was originally a watchtower in the early XIV century. Modified and extended in the centuries it measures now 420 sq.m. on three levels. Additional 80 sq.m. can be realized.. The ground floor is used for agricultural and service activities – wine production and storage, technical room, storage. It features stone or original terracotta floors with no trace of humidity, since the house stands on a rock (the name Capraria comes from Capre which in Etruscan language means the rock).
