The vineyard estate is close to the coast and is characterized by its unusual slopes on stony, red clay soil. But people make Monteverro so unique. The pure pleasure of wine commits us to uncompromising manual work and selection in the vineyards, and through precision and innovative technology in the cellar, we are ultimately helping every vine varietal, every location and every vintage to achieve their optimum expression.
"A good wine is not born in the cellar, but in the vineyard", this is the mantra of the Monteverro team and in particular of the winemaker Matthieu Taunay and the agronomist Simone Salamone who are spokespersons for the property guidelines on the field.
It is also obvious from the estate buildings that nature plays an essential role in Monteverro: the architecture with buildings deliberately kept low-level is intended to blend in with the landscape, not dominate it. The wine cellar was partly built into the hill to use the natural cooling of the soil. Our primary goal with the design of the cellar building was to treat the crop and later the wine in a manner that was as eco-friendly and natural as possible using gravity. A sustainable management, precise hand-crafted work and innovative technology complement each other here in order to be able to fully exploit the quality potential that grows in the vineyards.
The beauty of the untouched nature of Maremma is captivating. We look forward to welcoming you to our purpose-built wine shop and give you a guided tour of our vineyards and modern winery. By setting an appointment you can enjoy a wine tasting which will introduce you to the quality and variety of the Monteverro wines. You will find a warm welcome and great hospitality.
