Campochiarenti estate bottles and sells wines and olive oil that come from his property in the province of Siena in the municipality of San Gimignano and Poggibonsi.
The soil of this area is an alluvial soil, so his features added to the microclimate of these hills, the different exposure of the vineyards, and the traditional way of working in vineyards and in cellar allow the production of wines with a unique personality, strictly dependent from the terroir. So the flavor shows the characteristic “Tuscan character” and all the products are easily recognizable as products of Tuscany, inducing the illusion of being in the surrounding of Siena every time they are tasted.
We believe the contents of a bottles is much more important than the bottle itself, so we use the lightest bottles available. They provide a cheaper impression compared to a heavier bottle but the ecological impact on the environment is lower. The energy consumption is lower so is the carbon footprint, mainly related to the bottles production and their transportation.
For the same reason Campochiarenti Vin Santo del Chianti is bottled in half liter bottles instead of using the half bottle.
In our wines you can feel not only the tradition of Tuscany but also our feelings, our values, the respect of the Nature and the love for the vines, that our family teached us.
In 2015 we received the Ecoprowine certification that certify we have a special attention to the ecological impact in all the production area. [more details about this European project in this article written in italian]
