HISTORY

FORNACELLE Estate is located on the Tuscan Coast, along the Strada del Vino Costa degli Etruschi, the Wine Road of Etruscan Coast.
It belongs to Bolgheri DOC (Denominazione di Origine Controllata), one of the most prestigious Italian wine regions.
The farm was founded at the end of the XIX Century and it has always been a family estate. In 1998 Stefano Billi inherited the property from his grandfather and planted the new vineyards. A few years ago Stefano’s wife, Silvia, joined in the management of the estate.
Today Fornacelle estate covers a total surface area of 15 hectares. The vineyard extends for 8 hectares. The rest of the farm consists of an olive-grove of 1000 plants, a 1 hectare peach-orchard, and various vegetable gardens.

PRODUCTION PHILOSOPHY

From the beginning Stefano’s philosophy focused on high quality.
He selected vines and clones according to the different soils of the estate parcels. He introduced the modern vineyard practice based on lower yields. Read more »
