Story of the Wine
Villa di Geggiano, near Siena in Tuscany, has been the family home and winery of the Bianchi Bandinelli family since 1527.
Superb wines have been brought to the UK from the Villa since 1725 when Niccolo’ Bandinelli started exporting wine produced in its cellars.
The vineyards are located in the municipality of Castelnuovo Berardenga at an altitude of 350 metres. The average age of the vines is about twelve years, but some Sangiovese plants have been preserved for over twenty-five years (and in fact, our terrace is shaded by Sangiovese vines).
Today, Villa di Geggiano is an organic wine grower applying a holistic approach which includes the management of our winery, our company and our relationship with customers. We pay great attention to organic growing, using minimal technology combined with sustainable, ecologically balanced and traditional methods. The recently renovated vinification cellar is equipped exclusively with stainless steel vats, and the ageing cellar has natural moisture content and temperature ideal for maturation. Casks and barrels of French oak are used for maturing and we produce around 40,000 bottles of fine wine each year.
Apart from our own estate wines, other Tuscan wines in our selection represent the most important and renowned production areas. We have chosen small, organic and biodynamic producers who we know personally and appreciate for their commitment to sustainable agriculture and the superior quality of their products.
All our wines are available to take away with you after your meal and orders of more than two cases can be delivered to your doorstep.
