Vineyards


Le Macchiole’s history is entirely linked to its vineyards. From the beginning, extreme attention was paid to the land, and time served to increase the understanding of how nature is fundamental to the creation of an excellent wine. The winery only works with their own grapes, which come from vineyards that have been scrupulously selected over the years, now totally 64 acres located in various areas of the appellation. In essence, Le Macchiole’s team has created a mosaic of vineyards that together form a beautiful picture. The various small plots with unique qualities bring different nuances to the wines. Tapping into these raw materials is what creates Le Macchiole’s style year after year. Respect for the vineyards and the desire to highlight their diversity is what led the Le Macchiole team to choose organic practices, which are the foundation of a thoughtful, sustainable approach to agriculture. Their approach is tailor made and calibrated plot by plot and vine by vine thanks to the precision of their winemaking techniques, manual harvesting, and the double sorting of the grapes in the cellar. Le Macchiole does not make compromises, and this approach to their work is what allows them to vinify only the very best that nature has to offer.
