The Bellini family is part of an old land-holding family which, at the end of the 19th century, began to distribute in the area the products from its farms, with special attention to its wines. In the 1950s Carlo Bellini developed the business, expanding  the sale of wines in Italy and Europe. Today his daughters, Letizia and Alessandra Bellini, and his nephew, Maurizio Masi, continue his work, consolidating the traditional European markets and extending sales overseas where Bellini wines have become known and appreciated.

Bellini wines are made from local grapes, in part from their own lands and in part purchased from nearby farms following a careful selection. The winery is directed by Maurizio Masi who, after earning his degree in Industrial Chemistry, worked alongside his uncle Carlo in the family business and continues today to combine tradition with organizational and technological renewal to produce ever better wines.

The creation and bottling of wines is still carried out on the original Read more »

  • Keeping with the summery peaches theme, you could always go with a Bellini, whether simple, original version or something slightly more troublesome.  Very refreshing on a hot day, with less weight than the bourbon makes you carry. Even when they start accumulating, more of an Ali jab than a Foreman roundhouse.And one of my favorite versions of S... Read More

  • I mentioned this a while ago, but didn't get around to the post.  We stayed from September to end of December at a condominium in a complex built in the '70s. They've renovated and rebuilt since then (there were several major lawsuits for construction defects--built on fill!), but the architecture and the vibe is still very of that period. Our u...

  • Bellini Vernaccia di San Gimignano 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Fairly simple Tuscan vernaccia. Not too much of anything going on, a bit of honey and orange on the nose, decent enough acidity along with some fig on the palate. There's a bit of bitterness on the finish. Read More
