Ampeleia was born in 2002 from the collaboration and friendship between Elisabetta Foradori, Thomas Widmann and Giovanni Podini.  The estate covers around 30 hecatres in total based on the hillside below the beautiful town of Roccatederighi.

The town is about 500 metres above sea level in the southern part of the Maremma in eastern Tuscany, jot far from the coast.  When you visit this place, you understand what the 'real' Tuscany is all about.  It is a stunningly beautiful, quiet and natural environment and one which is perfect for the production of high quality natural wine.

The founders saw Ampeleia as a place where they could not only develop an agricultural project, but also fulfil a common vision relating to shared values and experiences. The vineyards were converted to biodynamic farming in 2009. The land is spread over 3 distinct altitudes, each with different soils which suit the different grapes cultivated.  The main grapes are Alicante (Grenache), Carignano (Carignan) and Trebbiano for white.  However the signature grape and that which excites them the most for its potential in this area is the Cabernet Franc.

The two men behind the winery are Marco Tait and Francesco Pascucci, both have been there since the start with Marco heading up the viticulture and Francesco the commercial side of the business.  Together, they form an impressive team and have driven the project forward with a combined vision which has passion, quality, no compromise and commitment at its heart.

All the wines here are made by respecting the natural processes transforming grapes to wine, aiming for a true expression of the land. The wines are pure and expressive, with delicious acidity to cut through classic Tuscan cuisine. The wines are bottled without fining or filtration, and very little sulphur. Fermentation takes place naturally in amphora
