With over 74 hectares of prime Chianti Classico vineyards – located in the communes of Greve, Radda and Gaiole – and 32 hectares in Maremma on Tuscany’s southern coast, we represent the largest extension of vegan (certified organic) vineyards in Italy.
Since our beginnings in 1974 in the high village of Ruffoli on the hillside above Greve in Chianti, we have gradually expanded our holdings in Chianti Classico to the communes of Radda and Gaiole in Chianti. Each site is surrounded by oak forests and olive groves whose presence not only adds to the abundant biodiversity found there but also offers protection against cross-contamination from conventional farms.
Amidst Maremma’s untamed wilderness, Querciabella estate in Alberese borders the Uccellina Natural Park, a fraction of Grosseto. The first vineyards were planted in 2000 to Sangiovese along with International varietals Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Cabernet Franc, all cultivated biodynamically since inception.
Our vineyards provide ideal living conditions for billions of microorganisms in the soil but also for many wild animals such as endemic birds and insects. This leads to a natural state of balance above and below the ground that translates into great vitality in our wines.
