The legendary story of a noble german prelate Johan De Fugger, lover of good wine, who, during a trip to Rome, used to send his servant Martinus ahead as wine-taster ordering him to write the latin word EST! (it is) on the gate of every town visited if wine was good and EST!EST!! if excellent. When the servant reached Montefiascone, he found a wine to be so good that he wrote EST! three times. It was the year 1111 and EST!EST!!EST!!! became famous. Cantina di Montefiascone gathers the original producers of EST!EST!!EST!!! Cantina di Montefiascone is a cooperative founded in 1956.
