• I Greppi stretches over 37 hectares (92 acres) planted a stone’s throw from the Tuscan coast in the heart of Bolgheri, the spiritual homeland of the Super Tuscan movement. • The winery was founded on 2001 by two of Tuscany’s most famous winemaking families, the Cancellieri and Landini. • Later, it was purchased by an International group of friends with a shared passion for geology and winemaking. Alessandro Landini, known for his award- winning work in Chianti, continues to serve as a consultant to the current owners. • The I Greppi winery grows Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot (the classic Bordeaux grape varieties). • The farm’s proximity to water creates the ideal conditions for extended ripening: Ventilation from the sea helps to cool the fruit during summer months and keep the grape bunches dry and healthy. • Biodiversity among the vines is bolstered by the presence of two lakes on the estate. Not only do they help to increase the presence of insects and other animals, but they also help to cool the vineyards in summer. • The wines are big and rich in style thanks to ripeness at harvest and barrique aging.
I Greppi in Bolgheri is characterized by two lakes on their property to bolster biodiversity. The lakes attract all sorts of insect and animal life, thus increasing the vitality of the soils and growing conditions.
