Combining tradition and innovation, Tenuta di Capezzana represents the Tuscan wine excellence, in full respect of the environment and biodiversity.
In 2009, we embarked on a journey towards more respectful agriculture, and today, after years of dedication, we are proud to be certified organic by Bioagricert. By abandoning the use of chemical products, we have returned to the agricultural practices of the past, rediscovering the importance of direct contact with the land and the respect for future generations who will inherit our work.
Traditional agricultural practices such as cover cropping have become the norm at Capezzana. We sow legumes in our vineyards to naturally fix nitrogen in the soil and add organic matter. This practice, combined with the use of light tractors to avoid soil compaction, helps to maintain soil health and its ability to retain oxygen and water, enriching it with microorganisms.
At Capezzana, we don’t talk about ‘fighting’ nature, but about ‘integrated respect’. We limit the use of chemicals, preferring natural methods to manage any insect threats. We believe that normal natural pest control is sufficient to maintain a bearable level of any damage, and we argue that by respecting nature and its biodiversity, we are able to leave a still fertile land for future generations.
Our cellars, which bear witness to a long history of winemaking, hold prized vintages that represent the true essence of Capezzana. Each bottle is a piece of our heritage, an expression of the balance and elegance that distinguish our wines. The new vintages are an exciting promise of what Capezzana has to offer, always maintaining a strong connection to our history and our land.
