THE ESTATE

Between the Chianti hills and the landscape of the Crete Senesi lies the San Felice estate – home to 465 acres of vineyards and 15,000 olive trees. The vineyards of San Felice have a history as rich and bountiful as their land. Dating all the way back to the Etruscan times, it wasn’t until the late 1970s that San Felice became what it is today when Allianz Group purchased the estate and committed to developing the farm into an avant-garde winery.

THE TUSCAN CLIMATE

The vineyards are set on sandy silty soils with a typical Mediterranean climate made up of mild winters and hot dry summers with sea breezes. Owing its bounty to the Tuscan land it lies on, the winery has an extensive vineyard replanting program with the aim of maximizing the value of its Sangiovese grapes. It’s the commitment and passion of those who work at San Felice to tend the land and make it bear fruit that keeps the tradition of winemaking alive.

EXPERIMENTAL PROJECTS

San Felice's Vitiarium is used in an effort to grow the estate while also giving back to the land that has made the vineyard what it is today. For over 30 years, San Felice has been collecting and classifying over 270 grape varieties in the Vitiarium. Paying close attention to the biodiversity of their vines protects the genetic heritage of Tuscan viticulture and accentuates the characteristics of Sangiovese.
