Ampeleia is a winery in the Upper Maremma region of Tuscany, located in Roccatederighi, a medieval town in the province of Grosseto. It is managed by a group of young people guided by vigneron and company manager Marco Tait, who took the reins when he was just 22. In almost twenty years of activity, we have converted our production first into organic and then into biodynamic and we created a small community of passionate, experienced people who keeps Ampeleia in a constant evolution and change. The character of Ampeleia has its roots in Cabernet Franc, the grape variety that best expresses the identity of the terroirs, while at the same time telling its story.
Ampeleia’s vineyards and farming system are unique in many ways. The 35 hectares of vineyards are surrounded by 85 hectares of woods and fields, a fundamental setting for preserving the local ecosystem and also to allow the vineyards to live and grow in an untouched, biodiverse community.
