About Winery and Wines

MonteRosola was built in the 15th century, originally as a fortified outpost for the Pignano Castle, it later became homestead for 3 to 4 farming families. The main products were olive oil, wine and grain. Hence, it is fair to say that wine and olive oil has been produced at MonteRosola for around 600 years.
The hills surrounding Volterra rise over 600m and are wind-swept most of the year. The character of the earth and our special microclimate (terroir) are particularly well suited for wine and olive oil production thanks to the healthy growing conditions. The intensive manual work in the vineyard and olive grove is supplemented with modern agricultural technologies for the achievement of the highest quality standards.
In 1999, Gottfried Schmitt and Carmen Vieytes purchased MonteRosola and commenced a rigorous renovation and restoration process preserving the original character of the estate and also replanted a state of the art olive grove and vineyard.
In 2013, Bengt and Ewa Thomaeus acquired the estate as well as more than 120 hectares of the surrounding land. The Thomaeus family have converted the whole estate to organic farming.
The vineyard and the olive grove are currently being expanded both with existing and new olive and grape varieties. A new gravitational Eco-Cantina is currently being planned and will be finalized in the coming year.
The Thomaeus family together with the talented staff is devoted to the pursuit to make the best wines in the world.
Monterosola’s vineyards sit between the world-famous wine growing regions of Chianti, Bolgheri and Montalcino where the terroir offers the optimum environment for growing first class wines. Our wines embody the rich and vibrant nature of Volterra’s diverse landscape and convey complex notes that make our wines highly desirable.
