Terreno | Organic winery in Greve in Chianti in the Chianti Classico DOCG region of Tuscany, Italy located due north of Greve itself. The Chianti Classico wines are well made, understated, easy to miss in a big blind tasting line up. Vin Santo del Chianti Classico DOC is also made. Terreno is not to be confused with another Chianti Classico estate called Podere Terreno in Radda in Chianti.
Owner | The Runne (Swedish) family since 1988. They also have an hotel in Stockholm, The Winery Hotel.
Staff | Winemaking consultant: Federico Staderini.
Vineyards 150ha of land in total. Vineyards, olives, forest (oak, chestnut). Evidence suggests viticulture and olive growing have been practiced here since AD46. The vines are in three areas.
One vineyard is north-east of Greve town, near the winery, at 300m on the right bank of the Greve river, a hot site on loamy soils. On the opposite hill is Bonili a vineyard planted in 2000 (6,000 vines per ha). Loamy soils. Terraced vines. The third vineyard is in Località Sillano (the backside of the Montefioralle hills), several kilometres due west of Greve itself, on on stony, calcareous soils, facing south-west.
