Terreno in Tuscany
Our vineyard in Tuscany - Terreno - is located in the Chianti Classico district. The grape variety Sangiovese dominates the wine fields and the area's traditions are a natural part of everything on the estate.
Terreno is part of The Winery Hotel through the Ruhne family who has made wine here since 1988. During these thirty years they have raised the quality of the wines by returning to a natural and organic wine production modernizing the wine making process. The wines produced are both traditional and innovative. Several prestigious awards confirm that it is possible to make first-class organic wine, where tradition and innovation meet - in the same bottle.
Sofia Ruhne was seven years old when her parents Mats and Birgitta took the brave decision to buy the vineyard. Sofia basically grew up at Terreno and today she is responsible for both the estate in Tuscany and the wine at The Winery Hotel.
There are several smaller country houses for rent located around the estate, overlooking the beautiful landscape of wine fields and olive groves. As a guest you can enjoy the estates’s wines, but also olive oil and fresh vegetables. Go for a guided tour of the winery, enjoy a wine tasting and then finish with a lunch or a dinner in the farm's restaurant. Terreno is also the perfect venue for events - from smaller dinners to large parties and weddings.
At The Winery Hotel there is a touch of Terreno in everything from design and decor to the flavors of the food and, of course, the wine served in all parts of the hotel.
