The winery is located in the municipality of Monterado (Ancona province) in the center of the "Terre di Frattula" on the right bank of the Cesano Valley in the Italian region Brands
, It was founded in 2001 by Otto Carlo Frueh and Maria Magdalena Schlegel. The couple had previously worked in the electrical industry and in the catering industry (pizza chain). Cereals were grown on the seven-acre Azienda La Maddalena, so it had to be started from the ground up. Rebs and olive groves were planted, the old country house rebuilt and a brand new Cantina (winery) built with the most modern technical infrastructure. In 2005, the first wine was marketed. The vineyards cover four hectares of vineyards. Only their own grapes are processed, these are the red varieties Sangiovese, Montepulciano, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, and the white wine Pinot Bianco.
