Argentiera Estate Welcome to the Castle

A winery between the Tyrrhenian Sea and Mount Amiata

I am very proud to have witnessed the establishment of this winery many years ago, from a property of 500 hectares, 75 of which are vineyards! The Poggio Argentiera Winery, which is located in Maremma, has vineyards which are only a few kilometers from the sea as well as others up on the hills of Scansano.  The company’s philosophy combines work in the vineyards with the utmost respect for the vine, its production cycle and the “terroir”, and reflects the company’s desire to create harmonious wines resulting from a balance between the plant and its surroundings. The vineyards located a few kilometers from the sea grow on predominantly sandy soil with little clay and little organic matter, while the vineyards on the hills produce wines with unique characteristics thanks to their exposure and the composition of the soil which is extremely stony. The combination of these elements is behind the success of the wines produced in Poggio Argentiera, which have already obtained awards both on national and international levels. The winery, which is technically very well equipped and also welcoming despite first-appearances suggesting it is too exclusive, produces the Award-winning Bolgheri Superiore DOC and a very pleasant Bolgheri DOC Villa Donoratico from the region. The view from the winery is also extraordinary. You can gaze out over the entire Bolgheri Doc region as far as the sea where, on clear days, you can make out on the horizon the islands of the Tuscan Archipelago: Elba, Capraia and Gorgona.
