From its very beginning, Ornellaia has been dedicated to producing one of the greatest wines in the world and sees this pursuit of excellence as part of itsTuscan identity. The Ornellaia style has been shaped by Bolgheri’s proximity to the sea and by the passion of all those who work in the winery.



The Ornellaia estate lies hidden in the foothills that face the Mediterranean coast close to Bolgheri. Unlike the majority of the appellation, most of the Ornellaia vineyards are situated on the hillside above and around the village. Our goal is to capture the estate’s great terroir in the complexity of all its facets. The great variability of the soils – marine, alluvial or volcanic origins – combines with the lay of the land to create a highly diversified patchwork of micro-terroirs, identifiable in more than 70 distinct plots.This explains how Ornellaia can grow both red and white varietals while achieving complexity and richness in all its wines. The quest for excellence and innovation in order to reinterpret tradition is the pillar of our philosophy. Each vineyard is approached as a single individual while every grape is subject to a double selection to ascertain the quality of the bunches and remove every single piece of vegetation. Sustainable viticulture is an integral part of our production philosophy and is based on the economic longevity of structures and territories, the qualitative production and the enhancement of the heritage and landscape of the Bolgheri area along with its historical, cultural and ecological aspects.
