Cantina Caiarossa

The Caiarossa winery is located in the medieval village of Riparbella (Pisa). Since 2004, it belongs to Eric Albada Jelgersman, a Dutch gentleman involved in the wine business. He also owns Château Giscours and Château du Tertre, two Grands Cru Classes in Margaux. The ultra-modern structure, designed by architect Michael Bolle, exploits the natural slope of the soil – the winemaking process follows gravity – and presents a particular lighting system that fully exploits the sunlight.

Castello di Fonterutoli

Belonging to the Mazzei family since 1435, Castello di Fonterutoli is located in Castellina in Chianti (Siena). The contemporary structure, designed by the architect Agnese Mazzei, is 75% underground. The vinification process follows entirely gravity; throughout three floors, grapes reach the 15 meters deep barrel room, the lowest level of the cellar designed with a unique style.

Rocca di Frassinello

Rocca di Frassinello was born from an Italian-French joint venture between Castellare di Castellina and Domaines Barons de Rothschild. The winery, located in Gavoranno in Maremma (Grosseto), was designed by one of the most prestigious architects in the world: Renzo Piano. The essential shapes and design of the winery enhance the functionality of the cellar. The whole winemaking process follows gravity. The barrel room, a large 40-by-40-meter square located in the center of the structure, is breathtaking.
