The History

When Elisabetta and her late partner Sergio arrived in the hills of San Gimignano in 1965, the land was abandoned: the woods had invaded the fields, the olive trees were running wild, the vines were covered by the bushes. So, they set out to bring the estate back to life and to revive the ancient ‘terra rossa’ soils by introducing beneficial animals (worms, rabbits) and composts to the estate. 

The Philosophy

At Montenidoli, Elisabetta and her team still forgo the use of synthetics in the vineyard, opting for the organic agriculture driven by the rhythm of the seasons that was once the norm in the region.


There is a profound respect of nature which is exhibited in the winemaking at Montenidoli. Only ambient yeasts are used, and wines only undergo a very coarse filtration. And receive minimal additions of sulphites at bottling.
