Tenuta Sette Cieli Winery

View all from Tenuta Sette Cieli Winery
Tenuta Sette Cieli WineryIn 1994, the Ratti family purchased more than 170 acres of isolated land near the Tuscan village of Monteverdi Marittimo between Bolgheri and Castagneto Carducci overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. The wild terrain used for horseback riding and wild boar hunting became the inspiration for the family's dream of winemaking. Their belief that the site was ideal for pursuing their dream was reinforced when two prominent wineries in the region expressed an interest in leasing land on the estate. In 2000, the family began planting the first vineyards on the property. Today there are 17 acres of high-density vineyards planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec.
The Ratti family chose the name "Tenuta Sette Cieli," or "the Estate of Seven Skies," for their winery because the property sits atop a hill at 1,300 feet with incredible views in every direction.
