Col d’Orcia is one of the oldest established wineries of Montalcino and is very much part of the history of Brunello. Among the most notable contributions of Col d’Orcia to the fame of Brunello.
Col d’Orcia literally means the hill overlooking the Orcia River. The Orcia River marks the South West border of the Brunello di Montalcino territory and the name of the farm is intrinsically linked to the physical location were the vineyards are planted.
It is the mission of Col d’Orcia to produce the best possible wines that the exceptional combination of soil and climate of this part of Montalcino can achieve.
At Col d’Orcia, for many years now, we have always ascribed high value to the natural environment in which we operate. For this reason in the year 2010 we took the decision of submitting to the organic farming certification process in order to become the largest organic wine producing farm in the whole of Tuscany. Since August 27, 2010 the whole estate including vineyards, olive groves, other fields and even the gardens are farmed following exclusively organic agricultural practices. We are very proud of this achievement and we can rightfully define Col d’Orcia as an organic island in Montalcino.
