With a great passion for good wine and having a long experience with excellent South African wines, Peter de Pentheny O’Kelly in 1990 bought the farm “La Casa di Bricciano”, in that time abandoned for years, in an area of Chianti Classico where vines and olive groves already existed since the second half of the sixteenth century, as confirmed by ancient documents.
In the undisputed realm of Sangiovese, he took up the challenge of planting Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot vines as well, trying to respect nature and traditions, to improve as much as possible every aspect of cultivation and winemaking: right orientation of the vineyards, pruning, decrease in production yields, fertilization with natural and organic products. The vinification as well takes place in total respect of the product, from rasping to bottling. The whole process is carefully handled in the very small cellar of the winery, today under the strict control of Rory de Pentheny O’Kelly, with the help of the brothers and mother who inherited the company.

Description of the winery

Our organic farm “La Casa di Bricciano” is located 30 Km from Siena, and 60 Km from Firenze, in the heart of Chianti Classico, at an average altitude of 550 metres. The 22.5 hectare farm is made up of 3.8 ha of vineyards, 4.0 ha of olives, and the remaining land forests. The aim is to ensure the highest possible standards. Over the years the wines have received many international awards, demonstrating that excellent products can be produced from organic farming. The wines are exclusively produced from owned grapes organically cultivated, in an amount of approx. 12,000 bottles per year. Since 2009, all wines are organically certified.
