The History of the Fattoria Montepescini Winery
Fattoria Montepescini was established in 2000 in the Tuscany region. The winery is located in Murio at the border of Montalcino, south of Siena. The owner of the winery bought land in 1956 and became a farmer. He planted the first vineyards near the ruins of Castelvecchio. Until 2000, they only sold their wines in bulk, but his grandson, Massimiliano Governi, joined the winery to start producing and marketing their wines in bottles.
