Charlotte and Nick Scott found Trasierra in the summer of 1978 in a state of disrepair. After three hundred years of monasticism the buildings had fallen into disuse, spare the cathedral like central structure which housed the Olive and Wine presses. The giant terracotta pots were excavated in the 80’s and are now a main feature of the house. What you see today we’ve arrived at in stages, and have continued to restore and refine over the past 40 years.
