Montecalvi is an estate of ancient origin. Once part of Castello di Uzzano estate, it was farmed for centuries under the mezzadria system, by which farmers farmed the estate for, and shared the harvest with, the castello. Montecalvi became an independent estate in 1988, and is now owned by the Drake family, owners of Collalto in Australia. We are renewing the vineyards, restoring the old vines (one of the oldest vineyards in Tuscany) and replanting with Italian varieties. Our estate is certified organic and we like to make wines (and olive oil) that are the best reflection of time and place.
