Terreno in Tuscany
Our wine journey started at a stone table in Tuscany. During the spring in 1988 we arrived in Terreno to begin what was to become our new life. The romantic dream of a vineyard in Italy soon turned into calloused hands and earth under our fingernails, but at the same time the love for the wine we were creating took root. Terreno stole our hearts, and since then, we have followed its wine from the budding vines to the finished bottle.
It soon dawned on us that the area had so much more to explore than the Chianti Classico for which it is traditionally known. Our fingers tingling with curiosity, we combined tradition with innovation. Many prize-winning wines and awards later, it’s still the passion for creating wine that drives us forward. It is possible to produce first-class organic wine, where the past meets the future – in the same bottle.
