Intro: In 1983, we fell in love with a little corner of paradise in Tuscany
and with the wines of Montepulciano. We weren’t shocked by the crumbling walls or abandoned vineyards. For us, Vallocaia was a diamond in the rough, a gem that couldn’t wait to shine again. It just needed passion, dedication and patience. In perfect harmony with nature, the jewel has come back to life. A place where a generation of dedicated winemakers painstakingly uphold the grape-growing and wine-producing traditions of the local area.
Over the years, Vallocaia has expanded its borders and enriched its
lands with ideally positioned vines, as well as olive groves, woods and
fertile plains. Today, after more than thirty years’ work to transfer the most authentic expression of our land into the bottle, we can confidently say that "We guarantee our wines. From the vine to the glass". We look forward to sharing with you the beauty that nature has given us.
