About the Producer
The Lunadoro farm is located in Valiano, in the renowned municipality of Montepulciano inside the park Natural of the Val d'Orcia. The estate extends over a ridge for 40 hectares, of which 12 are vineyards: of these 10 hectares Sangiovese and 2 Ha divided between Merlot and Petit Verdot. The cellar and the land are located in an optimal position and of prestige, because it is subject to the frequent presence of wind which guarantees the best conditions for the health status of the plants and grapes, ensuring a gradual and complete ripening of the bunches, to produce a wine of excellence. The cellar was completely renovated in 2006, by local architects and engineers, with the implementation of modern technologies for winemaking, combined with traditional oak barrels where the wine rests and it sharpens. The production of Lunadoro is a closed cycle, with the winemaking, storage and aging cellar in bottle and barriques.
The protection of the territory and the belief that nature is able to defend itself in the best possible way, in 2020 he pushed the Lunadoro winery to embark on the path towards the conversion of the entire vineyard into biological within three years. The attention to the soil and the greater care of the vineyard, also assisted by the favorable ones soil and climatic conditions of the area, will be determining factors in raising the qualitative bar even higher of the grapes and therefore of the wines.
