The Estate of Castelnuovo Tancredi encompasses over 600 hectares of the surrounding hillside of Montalcino in the region of Siena, precisely between Siena and the Orcia Valley. Many illustrious Italian families had owned this property such as the Guglieschi, the Borghese, and the Tancredi families, from whom the property was named after, prior to the acquisition of the estate by the Venturini Del Greco family approximately five generations ago. Their priority has always been to maintain the flavour and tradition of the estate while making modern improvements where necessary over the years. As in the past the extensive cereal production the oil production and the 8 hectares of vineyards make up the modern day reality of Castelnuovo Tancredi, where pride is taken to fully respect nature using organic agricultural methods.
