Winery in Montalcino

Podere Le Ripi

Live the wine experience, discover the Biodynamic vineyard

Our Winery

133 acres of forest, vineyards and olive trees near the town of Montalcino. Uncontaminated soil with marvelous vegetal diversity, breathtaking views and pure air of great tuscan countryside. The estate was formerly inhabited by sheep and their shepherd. It’s from him that I bought it in 1998: there was not a single grapevine back then. Since 2000, I’ve been planting and cultivating with a great respect for the soil following principles of organic agriculture. Le Ripi winery in Montalcino is certified biodynamic since 2015 and organic since 2014.

Bonsai Wine

An old Burgundian winegrower once told me that it takes 35 years for a vineyard to produce good grapes and a great wine. I was too thrilled to wait so I decided to try something new and innovative: I forced my plants to go through many different geological layers over a short time span, by planting them in a very high-density system. This gave them but one choice: in order to survive, they either had to go deeper with their roots or die. And it worked... i had my great red wine!

The Golden Cellar

Antique building techniques and timeless shapes give an extraordinary energy to our wines. From the day we started thinking and imagining our cellar until today, 12 entire years have passed. It was totally worth it, because whoever enters this cathedral of wine strongly perceives the intense harmony emitted: I know that even my wines feel it, while refining here for the first years of their lives. You can enjoy a deep visit with our guided tours.
