Our approach to winemaking is quite simple. Let the natural flavors of our beautiful grapes and terroir lead the way to creating elegant wines with a sense of place.
Each of the wines are crafted solely from estate grown fruit - from our everyday drinking L'aura Chianti Classico to the Podalirio Merlot with a true Tuscan sensibility, and our Sei Gran Selezione, well-deserving of its strict classification, to the one-of-a-kind Livia Bianco and favorite summer-sipping Furtivo rosé.
L'aura Chianti Classico was the very first wine produced by Querceto di Castellina in 1998, with about 3,300 bottles.
The Querceto di Castellina production has consistently grown over the past 19 years and we’re thrilled to share the wines with wine lovers around the globe, selling in key markets within the United States, Canada, Russia and throughout Europe. And it's always a pleasure to personally introduce each guest of the winery and agriturismo to our natural elegant and organic wines.

This limited release wine was crafted in honor of the 20th anniversary of the winery. It is an elegant, bold wine showcasing the best of our Sangiovese and Merlot grapes.
The name comes from the number 20 in Italian thus giving a nod to our twenty years in the wine world. However depending on where you place the accent, the word also translates to “winds,” which is a strong natural element at our Tuscan wine estate.
Barrel aging the best selection of our Sangiovese and Merlot in French oak for twenty months, followed by one year of bottle aging has resulted in a wine of impressive character and graceful complexity. This refined, beautifully balanced wine has the fruit, structure and depth to continue to develop and evolve for many years with careful cellaring.
With only 1,400 bottles produced, Venti is a special, limited release wine and is available exclusively from the winery.
