The estate and winery were established at the beginning of the year 2000. Stefano Casadei came to Alta Maremma on a quest for the soil and climate ideal to make his dream come true: growing international grape varieties respecting the environment, to create unique, extraordinary, authentic wines. Amongst the slopes that lead up the Metalliferous Hills, just 13 kilometers from the sea, he finds a mild climate, alluvial soils and mineral-rich terrains. Soon after, at a dinner party, Stefano Casadei meets Fred Cline. It was one of those life-changing moments that happened by chance, thanks to Italy’s proverbial hospitality. The two bond immediately, recognizing their common values: love for land and wine, commitment to quality, care for the soil, respect for the grapes, and an understanding of the same varieties. Even their families look alike. The dinner marks a new beginning: that of an entrepreneurial path to be shared in its entirety. Speaking a common language: the language of good wine.
