Scacciadiavoli a Winery in Umbria

The estate of Scacciadiavoli is the result of the dream of Prince Ugo Boncompagni-Ludovisi.The name Scacciadiavoli comes from a nickname given to an exorcist who lived in a village at the edge of the property.The legend says that one day a young woman who seemed to be possesed was entrusted to him, to free her from a demon.Using his potions and infusions, he tried to help her, but it was of no use, until he tried the “if all else fails” remedy, making her drink the red wine from the area until she was drunk.he girl came back to her senses: it was the wine of the exorcist which freed the girl  from her demons.  In time, the village where the exorcist lived, and the whole zone including the property of the Prince, came to be called Scacciadiavoli.It is one of the oldest wineries in the Montefalco territory.
