It was probably brought here in the 1400’s by Franciscan monks followers of St Francis. The sweet wine has been drunk by locals on weddings and Easter ever since. In the 70’s Arnaldo Caprai bought 10 acres of land and decided to focus on this old vine and for the first time make a dry red wine. In the 80 his son Marco who had graduated as an enologyst brought to the winery a desire to experiment and innovate. The Caprai’s convinced the University of Milan to come on board on a research project to clone the various strains of old Sagrantino vines which were on the verge of disappearing. The experiment was very successful and the rest is history. In 1992 the top appellation DPCG was awarded to sagrantino winning Caprai international recognition and many awards. Under strict Italian law, "Montefalco Sagrantino Secco" DOCG defines a wine guaranteed to come exclusively from Sagrantino grapes, exclusively from the Province of Perugia Secco means dry. The wine ages for 30 months, of which at least 12 in oak barrels. This wine is a DOCG, the highest-ranking category of Italian wine denominations Sagrantino di Montefalco, is a DOCG wine that must be made from 100 percent Sagrantino. Most wines in the world are made from the same 5-6 different types of grapes. Sagrantino di Montefalco is unique because it is made from a single grape and only made here. Sagrantino di Montefalco Collepiani first produced in 1979 is possibly the star of the collection. Caprai still produces Sagrantino di Montefalco Passito (also DOCG), the sweet wine that gave birth to the modern sagrantino . Today thanks to Caprai this wine once almost forgotten is drunk the world over. less

In Christian tradition, based on Acts 1:13, the "Upper Room" was not only the site of the Last Supper, but the usual place where the Apostles stayed in Jerusalem, and according to the Catholic Encyclopedia "the first Christian church". Thus the Cenacle is considered the site where many other events described in the New Testament took place. The early history of the Cenacle site is uncertain. The original building was a synagogue later probably used by Jewish Christians. less
