Our history

 

The farm “Il Ponte” rises from the flourishing Tuscan countryside, rich in sunshine and blessed with the vicinity of the sea, right in the heart of Maremma, once a land of Brigands, but now above all a fertile land of abundance, thanks to the loving and capable hands of those that have always searched for, found and respected the laws of nature.

Thirty hectares of fertile terrain, close to Capalbio, in the fraction known as Carige Alta, go to make up the farm assigned the number 469. Important renovations carried out from the 1990′ s onwards, have brought about structural improvements to the farm buildings and a consistent remodernization of the crops and vines.

The Farm is characterized today by two main crops, grapes and olives, as well as having an orchard and breeding livestock. The cultivation of olive trees, expanded over the past 5 years, complement centuries—old groves. The efforts, profound experience and attention to natural cycles make this Farm a precious gem in an area steeped in history, beauty and flavours.












WINE: CULTURE AND PASSION

Our wines

The wines come from grapes produced by vines pruned cordon, which in this area appears to be the best form of cultivation, able to enhance the aromas and taste of the wines obtained.
Particular attention is paid to the quality of the bunch, which is pursued with judicious interventions of pruning, thinning and toppings, such as to obtain very low yields per hectare, but that raise the quality.
