Fattoria Le Pupille

Fattoria Le Pupille, located in the Tuscany region of Italy, is a small estate owned by Elisabetta Geppetti. In the 1990s, Fattoria Le Pupille established a presence in the international wine market. Critics have rewarded its quality and consistency throughout its range of wines. Of particular note has been its Saffredi, which is found on the wine lists of the world's best restaurants.

In the 1970s, Fattoria Le Pupille was a farmhouse near Pereta with just five acres of Sangiovese vines. Even on this small tract of land, a good red wine was being produced and bottled, albeit in limited quantities. In 1978, the Morellino di Scansano DOC was created; that same year marked the first harvest of the new DOC wine at Le Pupille. Eventually the space in Pereta became too restrictive and Le Pupille moved to its current headquarters, where the estate now comprises 175 acres.
