New Members for the Tenute d'Italia Network

We are pleased to announce the entry of new companies into the Tenute d'Italia network: in recent months the team led by our sales office has focused on the important network expansion project to include some new, important Italian territories - and their great wines - to satisfy our customers' needs even more fully.

Our attention has turned specifically to Tuscany, in particular to the denominations Chianti D.O.C.G., Chianti Classico D.O.C.G. and Brunello di Montalcino D.O.C.G., involving three companies:

  CORTONESI1  BINDISERGARDI  CIANFANELLI

You will already find a short presentation and links to the official websites of the companies on our site in the “Partnerships” section, where you can also discover all the other producers that make up the Tenute D’Italia network.

Not Only Native Vines

In the article dedicated to our membership in the White Wines Club of Romagna we mentioned the white wines in our catalogue produced with indigenous (white) vines of our region, namely Albana and Pignoletto.
However, the production of white wines in Tenute d’Italia is not limited to these, but also includes other wines produced with so-called international varieties but which are part of the Romagna wine tradition almost as much as the properly indigenous varieties.

We are speaking in particular of Chardonnay, which in "Il Fascinoso" finds a truly territorial declination in combination with Trebbiano, Pinot Grigio, which makes up 100% of the brand new product of the Conte Zardi line "Il Mirabile", and Manzoni Bianco, used for the production of "Cheilante", a wine that due to its special characteristics is gathering more and more public success both in Italy and on the international scene.

Tenute d'Italia is Now on YouTube

This blog is not the only new feature conceived in Tenute d’Italia’s new communication plan.

The desire to share our great passion for wine has prompted us to pursue other forms of communication that can involve the public and make them truly part of our work.

Besides the official profiles of Tenute d’Italia on Facebook e Instragram, from today there is a new YouTube channel, entitled Tenute d’Italia.

Alongside the presentation video of our company and it’s philosophy, here you will be able to find important contributions about the in-depth studies dealt with in our blog, mini-documentaries that closely illustrate our work and its central characters, ending with real video guides for the discovery of wines in our catalogue.

Buona visione! Happy viewing!

Tenute d’Italia joins the Bianchi Club in Romagna

We are pleased to announce our enrolment into the Club dei Bianchi” (literally “The Whites Club”) in Romagna.

The project, initiated in 2018 and which brings together some of the most significant producers in our area, has set itself the important objective of promoting the visibility and reputation of Romagna white wines, fostering an increasingly widespread knowledge among the general public.

In spite of the current emergency situation caused by COVID-19 forcing the cancellation of numerous events and promotional initiatives, the Club’s activities are in full swing. They continue to pursue their mission in the best way possible … in hopes of being able to meet again soon to raise a glass together, perhaps filled with a good Pignoletto or Albana!

Welcome to Tenute d'Italia Blog

We’re delighted to give you a warm welcome to the Tenute d’Italia blog, the new project dedicated to the discussion of the principal topics related to the great world of wine, conceived with the idea of encouraging an increasingly conscious approach to one of the most intriguing and complex products that make up our daily lives.

From the reading of the label to the various methods of tasting, passing through the actual techniques of production, our objective is to compose a story that can promote a greater understanding of the world of wine, offering information and useful tips to navigate our way more comfortably through an increasingly changing market.

We invite each reader, then, to view this blog as a toolbox in which one may find some valid tools for refining their understanding, to stimulate new interests, but above all to evaluate one’s own experience as a consumer.

So, lets lift our glasses and toast the start of this new and exciting adventure!
