Conti di San Bonifacio Estate has just 7 hectares of vines planted by the San Bonifacio family in 2004. The carefully managed vines consist of 5 varieties; Sangiovese, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
Our philosophy is simple; Strive for absolute quality throughout every phase of wine making. This means meticulous vineyard management to grow the best fruit, rigorous fruit selection and delicate nurture through fermentation and maturation.
The beautiful Maremma, where our vineyard is situated, has changed dramatically over the last 30 years and exploded into one of Italy's most important wine regions. The Bolgheri region, home to the world renowned Super-Tuscan wines, Sassicaia and Ornellaia, is situated just north of our own vineyards, and has inspired winemakers all around to experiment with grape varieties untraditional to the area which have proved so successful when grown here.
There is a Mediterranean climate in the Maremma with hot summers (moderated by nightly sea breezes) long autumns, mild humid winters and rainy springs. It is warmer and more clement than in the heart of Tuscany, allowing the grapes to ripen much more easily than in some other regions.
The tranquillity of a life in contact with nature
The passion of growing grapes which will be great wines
