The Greco family, owners of the estate, is one of the most renowned and ancient families in the city of Rossano. Historical sources trace their origins back to the 13th century, attributing their ancestry to Poland. Their coat of arms consists of a golden Greek Y and a key on a blue field, surmounted by a red band with three silver stars.

Literati and jurists, the Grecos covered also public positions. Led by pure ideals, they were trusted soldiers as well as revolutionaries, who fought against despotic regimes and conquering armies.

Ascribed among the honorable noble families of Rossano, The Greco family first acquired the Lordships of the feuds of Arnaro and S. Lorenzo. And in the XVIII century they also acquired Tenuta Ciminata, which is still considered the family farm.

Ciminata (on the top) refers to the privileged position of the original building. Formerly a tower on the top of the hill dominating the Ionian Sea.

The building was later refurbished and today consists of the 3 different blocks. A master block and other adjoined blocks previously used as houses for the farmers.

"Recent" history

Tenuta Ciminata Greco used to be the winter residence of the Greco Family until the 1960s. While the family spent the summer at their noble palace in the heart of Rossano. Tenuta Ciminata Greco consisted of a master building and adjoined farmhouses that hosted the farm workers and their families. In winters many other families from the surroundings joined Tenuta Ciminata to help during the olive harvest and pressing.

In the private church, considered the spiritual site of the farming community, the Mass on Sunday and non-working days was always celebrated. The industrialization at the end of 1960s changed the working processes and farm work force was drastically reduced until farmers definitively abandoned their houses at the Tenuta. At the beginning of 1980s, the new Greco family generation started a long and meticulous refurbishment process, giving the original 19th century building a new splendor. Today Tenuta Ciminata Greco is a charming and elegant property with 21 accommodations, suites and apartments that welcome people from around the world, curious to discover the region Calabria, and in particular the Sibari and Corigliano-Rossano areas.

The core of the property is still the olive-oil mill, completely refurbished maintaining the original stone arches, olive millstones, and cellar whose walls made of 19th glass maiolica, were used to store the olive oil. The variety of the oil produced is the Cultivar Dolce di Rossano, a very ancient oil variety, predominant in the whole area.
