About Us

Ties

It was in 2000 when we decided to establish Campotondo. At that time there were no wineries in Campiglia d’Orcia but there was a vivid recollection of peasant farmers who produced traditional “mountain” wines for centuries. Ours is the story of generations of farmers who cultivated strong and unbreakable ties with the land. Campotondo has meant rediscovering these bonds and strengthening them in order to pay back the land and those who cultivated it before us, those who passed it on to us intact and fertile.

When my father planted our first vineyard I was only 5 years old; maybe, that’s why, ever since I can remember, wine has always been part of my life. It’s a passion that has grown with me and has oriented my choices and my path. Even while studying I was enthusiastically dedicated to my family’s winery; participating in exhibitions and tastings to introduce our wines, receiving guests at the winery and telling our story in person and online. For me talking about Campotondo means talking about my family, my land and my future. I couldn’t be prouder!

For many years I worked in a completely different field, but my family had always been a family of farmers for generations. I believe that’s why at some point I needed to go back to the land. During the 90’s I began working in this field, gaining as much experience as possible thanks to wine cellar courses, tastings and field work. Then, in 2000, I planted my first rows in a plot of land owned by my family and since that moment wine has taken over my life. I love to define myself as “a wine craftsman” because my hand and my philosophy are behind every wine I make: quality and personality without compromise, respect for the land and natural life cycles.

Until I was 30 the idea of drinking wine appalled me; then, after meeting Paolo, I got closer to this world step by step and I fell in love. Now, I can’t imagine a perfect meal without a good glass of wine. I believe that founding a winery from scratch, like we have done, requires courage and determination, as well as a certain amount of sacrifice...but then satisfaction arrives, and rewards all our efforts. Today, Campotondo is a continuous coming and going of people from all over the world and every new encounter has enriched our life.
