This villa rustica was involved in wine production and its owners were prominent Pompeians. Ths house was decorated with opulent frescoes and mosaics, some of which are held by the Getty museum in Los Angeles.

The site was excavated in 1905–1906 and was then reburied after numerous artifacts and wall paintings were removed.
