Simona Ceccherini – wine maker in Tuscany
Enter the gates, follow the trail through the hills immersed within the trees of the forest nurtured by the brook, to get away from the daily routine and find yourself again.
Losing track of time to find your spirit anew. This is the emotional journey that Simona and Adriano envisioned when they discovered this old, forgotten plot that was inhabited by old relatives years ago.
Along with their experience, they have rediscovered ancient history in this profoundly deep-rooted place of country living, going back to authentic practises of recognising, respecting and cultivating nature.
Maremma, Tuscany is an ideal land to find happiness and inspire us to produce great wines.
The Mediterranean climate is a genuine blessing to us. The winery in Tuscany boasts no secrets and no magic recipes. It’s the sea breeze that keeps the vineyards thriving. The generous land, rich with minerals and rigorously maintained under certified organic management, gives character to the grapes. The land, with luscious forests and biodiversity, is the ideal place for farm.
In the vineyards, we mainly grow autochthonous vine varieties such as Ciliegiolo and Pugnitello. We also grow some international vine varieties such as Syrah, which has found a home in Maremma for many years. The work’s mission in the wine cellar is to preserve the grapes’ innate aromas, making wine with elegance and maintaining the greatest respect for their individual characteristics. Never with force, yet only following nature’s command.
