Luca and Michele Begnardi founded a small winery, which was only established a few years ago in the charming area of the DOC Montecucco, which was newly created in 1998. In this part of the Maremma the family produces not only first-class wine but also many other regional delicacies such as grappa, olive oil, wild boar ham or cheese. All products can be tasted in their own osteria.
The property extends over 40 hectares, 8 of which are planted with vines. The harvest is done by hand.
