  • Le Mortelle

    Die Fattoria Le Mortelle liegt im Herzen der unteren Maremma in der Provinz Grosseto bei Castiglione della Pescaia. Sie erstreckt sich über 270 Hektar, davon 160 Hektar Weinberge, auf denen ein Wein erzeugt wird, dessen Charakter eng mit diesem Territorium verbunden ist, gleichzeitig kraftvoll und elegant. Auf Le Mortelle gibt es auch 15 Hektar Obstplantagen (Pfirsiche, Susinen, Aprikosen, Birnen und Heidelbeeren) in biologischem Anbau und zwei künstlich angelegte Seen, von den denen der größere eine Oberfläche von etwa 6 ha hat, umgeben von niedrigen Hügeln, die mit Olivenhainen und Wald bedeckt sind. Die Fattoria Le Mortelle arbeitet gemäß den landwirtschaftlichen Traditionen im besten Sinne, die durch den Ansatz der Umweltverträglichkeit ergänzt werden.

  • Fattoria Aldobrandesca

    The Fattoria Aldobrandesca is located in the southern part of the Tuscan Maremma, right in the center of what is called “the Etruscan zone of tufaceous rock”.

    The most common image of the Maremma is that of a maritime zone, one of plains and pine groves, horses and cowboys. The Maremma that we are dealing with here, instead, is the inland part, one which has the indisputable charm  of tuff, the rocky bluffs on which, in ancient times, a number of outright fortresses – now open-air museums – such as Pitigliano, Sorano, and Sovana were erected. The vineyards of the Fattoria Aldobrandesca are situated right on a spur of tufaceous rock, surrounded by a lovely panorama of real archeological interest as well.

    The estate was purchased by the Antinori family in 1995 and extends for over 193 total hectares (more than 480 acres)  on a gently descending plain of volcanic origin with tufaceous sub-strata. The property is approximately at 200 meters (650 feet) above sea level.

  • Le Mortelle

    The Fattoria Le Mortelle is situated in the heart of the lower Maremma near the city of Castiglione della Pescaia in the province of Grosseto. It consists of 270 total acres (675 acres), 166 of which (410 acres) are planted to vineyards whose grapes give wines with a character which faithfully reflects the territory in which they are cultivated, powerful and elegant at the same time.

    There are also fifteen hectares (37 acres) of fruit orchards (peaches, plums, apricots, pears, and blueberries) cultivated according to the precepts of organic agriculture, and two artificial lakes, the larger of which covers six entire hectares (15 acres). All around the estate there are low hills covered by olive groves and woods.

  • La Braccesca

    The La Braccesca estate covers 342 hectares (855 acres) in a territory once occupied by the estate of the Bracci counts, who gave their name to the property and, as well, their coat of arms, an arm (“braccio” in Italian) covered by armor which holds a sword.

    La Braccesca is just a few miles away from Montepulciano, near the boundary with the Umbria region, and has an overall surface area of approximately 418 hectares (1040 acres) in two different appellations, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and Cortona. Two strong identities, almost two different essences, which, together, constitute the estate.

  • Tenuta Monteloro

    The Monteloro estate is twelve kilometers (seven miles) from Florence on the hills behind Fiesole, immersed in a landscape of vineyards, olive groves, and woods which house, as well, lovely villas and stone farmhouses.

    The entire estate shows the vestigial remains of an agriculture which dates back to the Medici epoch. The zone is known for a past in which it was a place of repose for the Florentine nobility, testified to by the houses which once were home to Dante Alighieri and Beatrice Portinari and which look out over the vineyards of the property. At Monteloro, thanks to a terroir which is unique in the Tuscan panorama, Rhine Riesling, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Bianco, and Gewürztraminer expresses their maximum potential.

  • Prunotto

    Prunotto is located in Alba, the most important city of the Langhe district of Piedmont, equidistant from both Barbaresco and Barolo, in a rolling plain surrounded by the vineyards of both the Langhe and Roero areas. It is fully immersed in a landscape which seduces for the naturalness of the hills, which alternate with small valleys covered with vine rows which snake across the slopes.

    The territory is fascinating and absorbing not merely for the scenery, the colors and the “silences” which it offers, but also for the historical testimony and the traditions which characterize it. The entire zone, with its castles and medieval villages, conserves an artistic and architectural patrimony which are among the most important and special of the Piedmont region.

    The Antinori family, conquered by all of these factors, by a zone endowed with vineyards and soils so distinctive, decided to confront the challenge of this terroir with the conviction of beginning a program, a course of action which, today, has enabled Prunotto to occupy a position among the leading wine-producing houses of Piedmont.

  • Tormaresca

    The Tormaresca firm is composed of two different production units located in the areas of greatest viticultural potential of region: the Tenuta Bocca di Lupo estate in the Castel del Monte appellation, situated in the wild Murgia hills near the city of Bari, and the Masseria Maìme estate in the Salento area, the pulsing heart of the region.

  • Santa Cristina

    The venerable Tuscan city of Cortona occupies the peak of a high hill not far from Siena and Perugia.
    On one side a spacious plain, on the other the hill and the city itself. This is the view which can be enjoyed from the new Santa Cristina cellars, constructed in 2006 – 60 years after the first production. in 1946, of Santa Cristina as a wine  -  to confirm and renew the tradition of the wines of the same name.

    Santa Cristina, over time, has became a reference point for members of the trade, and others as well, for its constant commitment to quality. The care and attention which has always characterized the vineyard and cellar work has been the stimulus to continuous innovation and for constant efforts, both with native and international grape varieties, which have created a family of different wines. But one which is distinguished by a common style, fruit of the indissoluble link which joins the vineyard and its terroir to human endeavor.

    Santa Cristina, a new step forward in a long viticultural tradition.

  • Antica

    Antica, Antinori California, expresses immediately in its name the viticultural tradition of the family and the spirit of a new frontier, a marvelous story and the potential of producing wines of superb quality.

    The estate is located in the eastern part of the Napa Valley, on a high plateau (500-600 meters, or 1650-200 feet above sea level) in the Vaca Mountains. The landscape, with its hills, greatly recalls Tuscany, but above all represents an ideal area for viticulture. Time, in nature, runs slowly: this adventure, begun in 1993, led to a first production of wine from the zone only in the year 2001.

    This limited-production Cabernet Sauvignon represents a first important step for the estate, defining its great potential. With the 2006 vintage, “Antica” Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and, now to accompany it, “Antica” Napa Valley Chardonnay, were produced, wines in whose DNA, perfectly and harmoniously entwined, the styles both of Tuscany and of California can be found. Antica is the realization of a dream and, at the same time, a milestone in the production of great wine with the Antinori name in California.

  • Col Solare

    Every wine begin with an idea. This was the desire of Chateau St. Michelle and of Antinori, that of experimenting together the potential of Washington’s Columbia Valley. Producing wine is a collaboration with nature, a dialogue of the earth and the human imagination, terroir and technique. Antinori was to bring to the project its knowledge and experience and its passion for innovation. Chateau St. Michelle was to offer in its turn unlimited inspiration and vineyards suitable to the production of red wines of important structure. From this intense collaboration was born, in 1995, Col Solare, a perfect alchemy which joined the style of two great producers and a superb viticultural region.

    COLUMBIA VALLEY, 46° PARALLEL NORTH: A UNIQUE VITICULTURAL REGION WITH A RICH POTENTIAL.
    The Col Solare vineyards are to be found on the hills of the Columbia River valley in the state of Washington in the northwestern part of the United States. This interesting production zone is located  near the 46° parallel of the northern hemisphere, more or less the same latitude as Burgundy. The viticultural history of the area is rather recent and only in the last few years has succeeded in offering a ample range of wines which show excellent quality.
    The northerly latitude of the Columbia River valley is one of the characteristics which make this a unique territory. During the growing season, days are longer than in other production zones and favor, through the photosynthesis of the chlorophyll, a complete ripening of the grapes.
    The sunlit days and the very warm summers assist in ripening very fruity and concentrated grapes. The very cold winters help the vines to repose for the necessary time and then produce grapes of intensely varietal personality.

    The sandy and clay-rich soil and the infrequent rains contribute to making the interaction with this terroir somewhat complicated, but guarantee richness and complexity in wines which show an uncommon character and a great elegance.

    Dense, aromatic, and intense, Col Solare represents an original expression of the Columbia Valley.

  • Stag's Leap Wine Cellars

    Stag’s Leap is considered to be one of the most important wineries of Napa Valley in California. Founded in 1970, Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars today is known all over the world for the excellence of its Cabernet Sauvignon. This historic house became famous after 1976, the year of the so-called “Judgment of Paris”, when, a blind tasting, nine French judges tasted the finest California Cabernet and Chardonnay in a contest with labels representing the best red Bordeaux and white Burgundy.

    Defying all predictions, the California wines, up until then considered little more than a curiosity on the world wine scene, triumphed. The first prize was awarded precisely to the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon, causing a small earthquake in the world wine scene. A bottle of the 1973 Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars Cabernet is still conserved in the Smithsonian Museum in Washington D.C. to testify to this historic event.

  • HARAS DE PIRQUE

    Haras de Pirque is located in the northern part of Chile’s Maipo valley, known for its production of high quality wine.

    The collaboration between Haras de Piruqe, an excellent producer in the zone, and the Antinori Marquises, was born from the mutual desire to explore Chile’s potential.
    Albis, the wine which has become the symbol of the union of the two houses, between the Old World  and the New World, combines two moving spirits in one: the fruit of an international grape, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Carmenère, the Chilean grape par excellence. It reflects all the typical characteristics of Chile’s terrorir and the unique spirit of two trailblazing producers. 

    In addition, the conviction that the Andean viticultural zone of Chile represents a natural habitat for the Sauvignon Blanc grape, has convinced the Marchesi Antinori firm to begin a project  aimed at the production of a wine from this distinctive variety, thereby giving birth to Albaclara.

  • TUZKO

    The Tuzko estate is situated in the hills of Tolna near the Danube, 150 kilometers (some 90 miles) to the south of Budapest.
    The Tuzko Bátaapáti project began in the early 1990’s, when Hungary opened its frontiers to potential foreign investors. The long history and important potential of this area have always fascinated Italians. Under the aegis of Peter Zwack (the fifth generation of the noted Hungarian family which produces digestifs) , Jacopo Mazzei (strongly linked to the world of wine by family tradition) and Piero Antinori began the search for vineyards capable of production of high level wine.


    This research, after careful analysis of the soil and of climatic data, concluded in 1991 with the purchase of the Tuzko estate. The new proprietors had been struck, above and beyond the quality of the wines produced in the area, by the beauty of the landscape and the historic presence of the vine on the land of the estate, testified to as well by the presence of underground cellars.
    Given the encouraging results, in the year 2000 the Marchesi Antinori firm decided to increase its commitment to the project, taking direct control of the property.

    The vineyards are planted to local and international varieties which here express themselves at elevated levels:
    - 70 hectares planted to white grape varieties, principally Chardonnay, Zöldveltelini,  and Tramini and, to a lesser extent, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, and Rhine Riesling;
    - 70 ettari planted to red grape varieties , prevalently Kékfrankos and Merlot and, in minor quantities,  Zweigelt, Bìborkadarka, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Nero, and Kékoporto.

    The production philosophy of Tuzko aims at obtaining the finest varietal expression in the wines by single-variety fermentations of the different grapes. Particular attention is given to native varieties, both red and white.

  • Meridiana Wine Estate

    Founded in Malta in 1985 by Mark Miceli-Farrugia, the Meridiana Wine Estate has availed itself the collaboration of the Antinori family to fully realize ambitious projects of renewal and improvement as part of the vast program of agricultural development of the government of the island.

    Meridiana’s mission, in fact, is to create international wines in terms of technique and of the technology utilized while, at the same time, showing off their territorial character. Transmitting  one’s own experience and sustained projects of development is an enriching experience which always teaches something new. For this reason, a true collaboration has been created in the experimentation of international grape varieties.

    The 19 hectares (47 acres) of proprietary vineyards, in particular, have been planted to Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, and Petit Verdot, varieties which show the potential, and in turn benefit from the influence, of the soil and the mild climate of Malta.

  • Vitis Metamorfosis

    A small butterfly is the symbol of a new project, born of the firm conviction that Rumania has a great viticultural potential to express, of confidence in the future of the country, and of a development strategy open to new productive realities.

    Vitis Metamorfosis uses to full advantage the talents of winemaker Fiorenzo Rista  and his experience and knowledge of the town of Halewood in Rumania, which have developed and deepened through years of professional work in the cellars of the country. ‘We strongly believe in the potential of Rumanian viticulture and we have great confidence in the future of the country’, states Piero Antinori.
