Estate::

Fattoria Casa di Terra, founded in 1950, has been operated by the Frollani family for over 60 years. Located in Bolgheri, the 30 hectares of vineyards benefit from the superb climate and proximity to the sea. The vineyard soil is of medium texture, with balanced layers of fossils, clays and minerals.

Fattoria Casa di Terra is in a period of growth. The owners, Giuliano and Gessica Frollani, are expanding upon the hard work begun by their grandfather. A new winery, scheduled for completion prior to the harvest this year, will bring modern winemaking techniques and reduced environmental impacts to the production efforts of Fattoria Casa di Terra
