Maremma wines: Morellino di Scansano and Bianco di Pitigliano are made at the Acquavivia Wine Farm.
The Acquaviva Wine Farm was created in 1984 when Mr. Serafino D’Ascenzi, the present day owner, bought the estate from the Marquess Ciacci.
At first, Mr. Serafino bought only three hectares of white wine vineyards; later, he purchased more land for red wine vineyards so that, nowadays, his property is made up of 15 hectares.
Various types of vines: Sangiovese, Malvasia nera, Alicante, Trebbiano, Chardonnay, Verdello.
The excellent quality of the wines and praise from wine experts made them decide first to enlarge the original old wine cellar, and then, later, to build the new wine cellar. Their aim was not only to improve the wine itself and to make some new ones but also to make room in the wine cellar for meetings and specific events designed to promote Tuscan and Maremma wine and food in Italy.
The Wine Farm spreads over an area which is the meeting point between the areas of the denomination of origin of the Morellino di Scansano and Bianco di Pitigliano vineyards around Montemerano and Saturnia Spa.
Thanks to the wine, to the warm hospitality of the Luxury hotel and to the sophisticated and genuine Tuscan cooking served in the La Limonaia restaurant you can get to know where the Maremma wines are produced: Montemerano, Saturnia, Manciano, the Maremma and the whole of Tuscany .
The wines produced by the Wine Farm can be tasted in the restaurant or in the wine bar, which is located inside the old wine cellar in the country hotel.
It will give us great pleasure to show you where the work is carried out in the new wine cellar, the room with travertine arches where the wine casks are kept and where there is the right atmosphere for the wine aging in the oak Tonneau barrels; and we will also show you the various Maremma wines produced in the Acquaviva Wine Farm Cellar:
