Today: Gold medal for SCORPUS, Berliner Wine Trophy

Flavius Scorpus was a famous charioteer in Rome in the 1st Century. Born as a slave with great goals, he became one of the most successful charioteers in Roman history with more than 2,000 victories. Due to his numerous successes and fame, he was able to buy his freedom and thus reach the status of a libertus (freed slave). He died at Circus Maximus in Rome at the age of 27.

Scorpus’s personality and his story from a lawless slave to one of Rome’s most famous charioteers inspired us to name our best wine after him.

You can learn more about Scorpus’s history in the Terra X series “Bread and Games – Chariot Races in Old Rome”.
