Fattoria Camporignano is a premium winery that was born among the hills of Siena, in one of the most enchanting settings in Tuscany. It is located between the production zones of Chianti Classico and Vernaccia di San Gimignano, and only 40 km from Siena and 35 km from Volterra. Camporignano consists of 10 hectares of vineyards and a completely new wine cellar that was built incorporating the latest wine making technologies. It is focused on top quality wines while employing modern technology to assure that perfect temperatures and humidity levels are maintained during the production and aging process. The production area is located on the top of one of the well known Siena hills. At an average altitude of 300 metres above sea level is a small lot of clayey-calcareous land, typical of the area around Siena and called �mattaione� in Tuscan
dialect. Of marine origin, the land is very arid in summer pushing the roots
of the vines to seek the mineral salts in the depth of the soil. The grape bunches, which are hand-picked, are carefully selected in order to give each wine their distinct and appropriate characteristics. The benefits of this careful and demanding work are clearly evident from the fine wine that they produce. Beginning with the grape, the wine maker's work in the wine cellar after fermentation has been completed, is limited to only the
most delicate of interventions. The vast barrel area where the refining of the wines are performed in big
barrels or in the barriques, is equipped with systems that guarantee exact temperature and humidity levels. Camporignano�s wine cellar is opened to everyone who would like to enjoy some of the best Toscana IGT premium wine while taking in the beautiful countryside of Val d�Elsa. Fattoria Camporignano has a wine tasting hall and patio with fantastic views, ready to welcome visitors and wine enthusiasts.
