What happens when you take a bunch of scientists and visionaries, introduce them to a vineyard on the Tuscan coast….well that is the new chapter of the I Greppi story. The vineyard was created in 2001 by the Cancellieri and Landini families, and the wine is still overseen today by Alessandro Landini who is part of a wine dynasty with generations of experience producing Chianti Classico. In 2017, after researching Bolgheri’s unique terroir, a new international group of friends took over the I Greppi brand. With an appreciation of the outstanding environment, the new owners also saw the potential for developing the wines, as well as the vineyard, into a world-class product for international markets.
We are a group of wine lovers, scientists, geologists, economists and horticulturalists, who think about wine making differently. Using our expertise, we look to the past, as well as the present and future, so that our wines will be constantly evolving and improving. Our understanding of the rocks and soils, the very basis of terroir, helps us to understand why the Etruscans first developed wine in this region millennia ago. Our viniculture is incorporating the newest scientific techniques and research from the Napa Valley in California, so that our wines will be continually evolving and improving. Together with the vineyard’s traditional Italian winemaking heritage, our goal is to make great taste accessible, and share our knowledge and the story behind every bottle.
