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. The vineyards are located on the southern slope of the Montalcino territory, on hilly lands and extend over 540 hectares, from the Orcia River to the village of Sant’Angelo in Colle, at about 450 metres over sea level.Its position is extremely favorable as it faces south directly, and it is also protected by the barrier of Mount Amiata (1.750 meters) against meteorological events such as floods or hail, and to the mild climate coming from the Tyrrhenian coast, in the west, where the sea is some 35 km away.
The nature of the soil is undoubtedly favorable to grape growing, with fundamentally loose grounds, poor in clay and rich in limestone and inert materials. The high number of sunny days throughout the whole vegetative season ensures a gradual and complete grape ripening.
Col d'Orcia wines are estate produced and bottled, with grapes grown mostly on the estate and partly in surrounding farms whose vineyards are supervised by Col d’Orcia during the whole productive cycle.
