There is even more of the Maremma on the horizon for the Santa Margherita Wine Group, which has consolidated its presence in the Province of Grosseto thanks to the purchase of the Pieve Vecchia winery at Campagnatico. The new property in Tuscany will be a reinforcement for the historic Tenuta Sassoregale estate, situated at Civitella Paganico in the Ombrone Valley, which has been part of the Group since 2000. With this acquisition, the Santa Margherita Wine Group is investing in the Maremma Toscana D.O.C. denomination and the wines – unique in style and tradition – that are produced in this region.
The architectural complex of Pieve Vecchia, designed by architect Cini Boeri, is futuristic, - a steel sail lying atop a building with huge windows – and is inserted in a landscape of great scenic and historical importance.
With the new 42.4 hectares of land that have been bought – of which 28.8 are planted with organically farmed vines - Tenuta Sassoregale has enriched its real estate and can now count on a total area of almost 80 hectares, including woodland, olive groves and meadows.
The Santa Margherita Wine Group therefore now owns more than 720 hectares under vine, with the clear objective of increasingly consolidating a model based on making rather than buying, with a careful eye on the best possible practices in terms of sustainability.
