The Estate sits in viticultural isolation in the Orcia Valley near Sarteano, where Tuscany meets Umbria and Lazio.

Tenuta di Trinoro

Andrea Franchetti acquired the property in the 1980s and in the beginning of the 1990s started planting his first vines. His love of a challenge appears to know no bounds.

He set up home temporarily in a semi-ruin in a remote area of southern Tuscany - the Val D'Orcia.  He had set his sights on a dilapidated property atop the next hill to be the site for his dream vineyard.

There were no access roads and what is now vineyard was woodland and scrub - but that all seems to have had little bearing on Andrea's determination to produce wine here.  Andrea knew instinctively that Trinoro could be a fabulous site both in its geographical positioning and in its soil, which is rich in marine deposits.

Trained in Bordeaux, he is certain that terroir is everything.

The Vineyards


27 hectares located at Orcia Valley, Southeast Tuscany, 500-700 metres above sea level. The vines, are more than 20 years old and with their extended roots, they have become able to render a distinct taste from every terrain of the estate. 

Cabernet Franc and Merlot dominated the plantings, with small parcels of cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot on the perimeter.

Placed under a mountain, Tenuta di Trinoro has a mosaic of clay, marine fossil-rich limestone and gravel. Climate temperate with hot summers.
