Scacciadiavoli is the fruit of a dream by prince Ugo Boncompagni-Ludovisi, of Rome. Founded in 1884, it was conceived as a wine "industry" an imposing oenological complex, highly advanced for its age. It has been the property of the Pambuffetti family since 1954. The production is typical of the area: Montefalco Sagrantino, Montefalco Rosso, Umbria Grechetto, Montefalco Bianco, Spumante Brut and Spumante Rosato from Sagrantino grapes.
Upon his death in 1977 his sons Alfio, Settimio and Mario continued the activities that had begun with their father. In the year 2000 the Pambuffetti brothers (Francesco, Carlo, and Amilcare), the children of Settimio, in the name of an ancient tradition, decided to take the winery into their own hands - the oldest
A few years ago the fourth generation of the family joined the activities (Amilcare, Iacopo, Liù, Romeo and Fiammetta). As it stands, the dimensions of the property are of 130 Ha of which 35 Ha are dedicated to grapevines. Current annual production is of around 250,000 bottles.
The vines, at an average altitude of 400m above sea level, are situated on sandy-clay soil of medium depth, highly suited for quality viticulture specialised in late vine varieties such as Sagrantino. The vines occupy various hillsides in the municipalities of Montefalco, Gualdo Cattaneo and Giano dell'Umbria.
