Tenuta San Vito, Origins in the 1960’s

The story of Tenuta San Vito begins with its founder, Roberto Drighi, who planted specialised vineyards and olive groves from 1960. The construction of a cellar and olive press-house led to production of the first wines and olive oils. The estate has been run by the Drighi family ever since.

Transition to Organic Farming

In the early 1980s, Laura Drighi, one of Roberto’s daughters had the idea to change its cultivation practices and adopt organic farming. They were officially certified as such in 1985, followed by European Union regulation in 1991. Neri Gazulli, Roberto’s nephew, is San Vito’s current manager and enthusiastic practitioner of organic agriculture. He continues the projects begun years ago and taken necessary steps to further develop the business. Tenuta San Vito Winery grows their own grapes in the vineyards. The major varieties of grapes cultivated in their fields are Sangiovese, Merlot, Chardonnay, Canaiolo, Ciliegiolo, Colorino, Malvasia and Orpicchio. They produce red, white and sparkling wines in their cellar, and they have been certified DOCG, DOC and IGT. Tenuta San Vito Winery produces wines using traditional methods along with organic farming techniques, the end result produces delicious wines of very high quality.

A Great Stay in the Apartments Directly at the Winery

Tenuta San Vito Winery began restructuring in 1985, along with going organic to develop farm residences for the winery and convert into an agritourism business. The winery now has apartments, rooms, swimming pools, and a restaurant. Guided visits through the vineyards and winemaking cellar allow guests to discover the countryside and to personally witness the activities in the cellar.
