About Col d'Orcia:

Col d'Orcia is the internationally celebrated producer of one of Italy's most revered red wines, Brunello di Montalcino. Situated on the outskirts of the medieval hilltop village of Montalcino in Tuscany's Siena province, the estate has a rich winemaking history that dates back to the 1700's. In the hands of the Cinzano family since 1973, Col d'Orcia is owned today by Count Francesco Marone Cinzano, with day-to-day operations directed by Edoardo Virano.

Winemaking at Col d'Orcia is entrusted to chief enologist Pablo Harri, whom many contemporary wine experts credit with being one of Tuscany's foremost experts in the art of making outstanding Brunello di Montalcino wines. Maurizio Castelli serves as consulting enologist.

Integrity is the cornerstone of Col d'Orcia's prestigious reputation. Low yields are maintained through methods such as winter pruning and "green harvesting" and all grapes are hand picked and vinified with the utmost care to ensure the level of quality upon which Col d'Orcia has built its reputation.
