Only if we respect nature, then it will provide us with the riches from which, with our passion and professionalism, we can produce our outstanding wines.

Giuseppe Basta

I was born and raised in the countryside, surrounded by vineyards. This is the origin of my passion for the science and study of wine and winemaking.
As a child, I never missed the opportunity to run into the cellar to watch what was, for me, a magic show: fragrances, colours, the continuous transformation of the wine were what made that place special, fostering the awareness of the path I wanted to take. Today I have the satisfaction of having achieved my goal of combining passion and work, one that I have subconsciously pursued since childhood.

I love our land and I have full respect for nature. This principle is shared by our enterprise, which was founded on the principle of cultivating the land in accordance with its cycles and seasons. Only in this way will nature repay us with fruits of great quality. This is how we achieve an excellent product: a unique wine, worthy and representative of this land.
Love and respect for the land has always been at the heart of our “family”.

When I first saw this place, sitting in the shade of an oak tree, I had no idea that this was to be where my passion and my career would blend.
As I sit under the same oak tree today, my gaze wanders over the fabulous landscape. This is where our company came to life, a project that I have shared in and contributed to since the very beginning. Sometimes, the passion and desire to build something together are there, and all it takes to give them shape is the right opportunity. In my role as sales manager, receptionist and sommelier, I have the chance to introduce people to our philosophy and production methods, but more importantly to the diversity and authentic flavour of our products. Visiting our estate and participating in a tasting event is a way to dive into the very soul of this slice of paradise that is Val d’Orcia.
I’m a firm believer in the values that have always guided farmers to a way of working in harmony with the environment, with an eye to the future and forethought for the next generations.

Giada Savelli

Where I am today, I owe to my grandfather. He devoted his life to his small farm in Val d’Orcia, and he passed onto me the ancient knowledge shared by those who work the field: the sensible use of resources, the preservation of biodiversity, and adherence to nature’s vital cycles. Inspired by his wisdom, I have been progressively drawn to this world.
My high-school diploma in agriculture with specialisation in oenology has afforded me comprehensive knowledge of wine and winemaking. So I decided to work in hospitality: offering wine tastings and guided tours of the wine cellars is the perfect job for me, as I love to share my passion with other people and accompany them on an experiential discovery journey into the flavours, colours and scents of my homeland.
Passion is fundamental for successful winegrowing and the production of excellent wines. But we need to add preparation, research, commitment, determination and experience: all these features are united in a team that shares the same passion and goals.

Famiglia Sanoner

We felt in love with this place on an autumn day: a few hectares suspended between the medieval castle of Vignoni Alto and the valley of the River Orcia, perched on the rolling hills of Bagno Vignoni above our Hotel ADLER THERMAE.
It was the year 2007 and we, being in the family hotel business for over 200 years and six generations, had no hesitation because over the years we have always fostered a strong appreciation for special places. Those places that win you over from the very first moment, touching your heart and conveying a sense of peace and well-being. This was one of those places.

Three hectares of farmland, ideal for vineyards. Why not? The first one was planted in 2009 almost as a hobby, simply because we love nature. We became immediately aware that good will and a little free time would not be enough to successfully tend a vineyard or produce excellent wine. Passion is fundamental, but it is not enough: preparation, research, commitment, determination and experience are also required. Professionalism is needed. We required people with these qualities who shared our passions and our goals. We found the right people and, together with them, we have undertaken the challenging but exciting path towards a winery with high professional standards, a respectful awareness and attention to the land and the rhythms of nature, and dedication to organic and (where possible) biodynamic winegrowing and production.

Today the Tenuta Sanoner estate extends over 30 hectares of olive groves and vineyards. The latter are concentrated on 12 hectares that boast excellent conditions for the cultivation of grapes. We will seed the vines step by step, year after year, with the aim of producing outstanding organic wines that reflect the land of their origin. The first results are very encouraging.
