COLLINE DI SOPRA
THE WINERY AND ITS TERROIR
THE MODERN ORGANIC WINERY
The modern organic winery Colline di Sopra was founded in autumn 2006, and taken over in 2015 by agronomist Ulrich Ziegler (ETH). It is situated 10 km from the sea and 15 km from Bolgheri, in the sunny and well ventilated valley of the Cecina river, in Montescudaio.
THE 93-HECTARE ESTATE
The 93-hectare estate has an excellent terroir, with loamy, lime- and mineral-rich soil, and countless marine fossils. Colline di Sopra comprises a 12-hectare productive vineyard and a 18-hectare newly-planted vineyard with grape varieties typical to Costa Toscana and white grape varieties.
OUR GOAL IS
Our goal is natural and sustainable cultivation. To this end, we also use renewable energies and collect rainwater. In our vineyard, we produce in accordance with organic and biodynamic criteria. In our wine cellar, we work exclusively with indigenous yeasts, as far as possible without sulphites and no filtration. As such, the vineyard is cultivated strictly in line with organic and biodynamic principles, and is monitored by the ICEA certification authority.
Life is too short to drink bad wine.
