PIAN DELLE GINESTRE WINERY
Pian delle Ginestre Winery is a historical enterprise in the heart of Montalcino, owned by Mrs Grazia Ciacci Bellocci Natalini,
descendent from Ciacci Family, ancient and highly valued landholders and wine producers in Montalcino.
Legal Head Office is located in Montalcino oldtown, at via Spagni 37, beside the main Cathedral and inside the Family historical Palace.
This building's origins are from Middle Ages and it's said to be the Residence of that time People Leader, called "Podestà", who used to have a political role within the local government and was supposed to look after the rising middle classe's interests.
Inside the building's cellars are still visible, even if blinded by now, some tunnels, who seem to be heading at that time
outside Montalcino walls and inside the main Cathedral.
On the south west corner of the Palace, at Vicolo Sant'Antonio, is located our Wine Store where our products are available for direct sale.
The main Winery is instead situated at 300m above sea level, just inside the most vocated Brunello di Montalcino production area, and it extends for about 90 hectares with 2.850 secular olive tree,s situated at different heights, and 5,5 hectares of vineyards certified for the production of Brunello wine.
The remaining part of the estate comprises, in addition to wine and olive oil production areas, arable fields and woodland,
where a Game Reserve is also available.
Owners' strong connection with their origins and local traditions is the main foundation of Winery management, but their foresight and perpetual search for better quality is what has led to capital investments aimed to improve and modernize management and production methods.
In fact, refined materials (as selected woods for barrels), high quality biological cultivation products and high technology equipments are properly used.
Our wine production is of about 30,000 bottles a year, 6,000 of which are Brunello Di Montalcino DOCG, 6,000 bottles of Rosso Di Montalcino DOC and 18,000 of Rosso Toscano IGT. Olive Oil production is of about 15 quintals a year, available either packaged in 500 ml DOP bottles or in 5 lt cans.
