The company was established in 1893, thanks to the passion and dedication of the Cecchi Family
The combination of entrepreneurship and talent has led the company to become synonymous with winemaking, both in Italy and worldwide. With over a century of experience and love for the countryside, Cecchi Family still faces each day with strong enthusiasm.
The Cecchi Family’s first acquisition was Villa Cerna, in the early ‘60s.
In this place, an ancient monastery of the year 1000, besides it’s historical value, Luigi Cecchi recognised its high potential for viticulture. Following the restoration of the Villa, a winemaking and wine-ageing cellar was built at the foot of the hill..
In 1996, Cecchi purchased the Val delle Rose winery in the small town of Poggio la Mozza, which lies right in the productive heart of the Morellino di Scansano. o.
Here, the Family carried out a small farming revolution, which went not only to improve the agricultural techniques but also the wine-ageing ones.
In 1988, the company acquired Castello Montaùto, which, along with the homonymous hamlet, stretches across a picturesque ridge, just a few kilometres from San Gimignano.
The usual attention to environmental impact and the will to get the best out of the available land led the winery to plant about 48 hectares of vineyard out of the 82 owned.
In the late ‘90s, for the first time in its history, the Company expanded beyond Tuscan borders to take on a new production venture.
The acquisition of the Tenuta Alzatura in the land of the Sagrantino di Montefalco in Umbria, entails a reorganisation of the production, agricultural and oenological strategy, in order to adapt to the new reality.
