The Grigia Griccioli family dates back to 1345 and has worked the lands (terre) for centuries. Hence Terre della Grigia. In
the current Montechiaro estate was developed and what you see today- vineyards and villas with an expansive view of Siena and countryside. Most importantly, the lands produce rich, fruitful grapes that are proucing an assortment of wonderful wines orchestrated by the talented winemaker and owner, Alessandro Griccioli.
Careful attention to detail permeates all their wines (and fabulous olive oil) producing a range of wines from sangiovese grapes: Chianti, Rosé, and a delectable Chianti Reserva. However, not to be missed is the artful and unique white wine - Arteliquida - a blend of Viognier and Malvasia. The estate warmly welcomes visitors and also has a retail shop inside the 13th century Monteriggione Castle. (not to be missed!) It's open all year round and absolutely worth a visit.

If you think great rosés only come from France, think again. This rosé always gets great reviews - for its taste of fresh cherries, raspberry and strawberry rolled into one. Made from 100% Sangiovese grapes, this rosé always stands out.
