About Salcheto
Salco means "willow tree" in the ancient Tuscan language, an important plant for wine territories throughout history as its branches were used to bind the vines. Salcheto is the name of the stream , which springs at the foot of the town of Montepulciano and winds through a valley where willows abounded. This stream is the boundary of the Salcheto organic and biodynamic estate, rooted in the historic district of Vino Nobile, in the southeast of the Siena province of Tuscany. The willow tree, a species that we continue to replant at the winery, also contributes to the winery's energy independence, is today prominently represented in our logo as part of our commitment to environmental sustainability.

As quite possible the most eco-sustainable winery in the world, the Salcheto winery produces wine leaving zero (negative!) carbon footprint. Since 2011, Salcheto has relied on full energy independence, becoming, probably, the first "Off Grid" winery, in the sense of being completely disconnected from traditional power-distribution network. Ultimately, the goal is to work in an environmentally responsible manner to create the greatest expression of quality and authenticity in their wines. With this in mind, Salcheto hopes to bring romance and passion to the science of fine winemaking, blending time-honored tradition with modern technology. It is a life challenge that they take very seriously in making high quality, ecosustainable Tuscan wines.
