In the sunny days when Clara and Annamaria walk among the vineyard rows it seems to hear the voice of Dora, that special great-grandmother who knew all the secrets and hidden wonders of her land. Today she would look with pride at her family and at what was born from her sowing in the Gorghi Tondi reserve. The story of the estate began more than 100 years ago but it was in 2000 that Michele Sala, father of Annamaria and Clara, decided with his wife Doretta and daughters to start bottling the good and the beauty that have always surrounded them. Annamaria and Clara have taken over from their father and today they continue to take care of that dream. Gorghi Tondi is located in a nature preserve, a crossroads between sea, sun and earth that enhanced the grapes with its majestic complexity. Here, 130 hectares of vineyards are worked with skillful hands and an eye to the future to produce organic and unforgettable wines.
