Col d’Orcia literally means the hill overlooking the Orcia River. The Orcia River marks the South West border of the Brunello di Montalcino territory and the name of the farm is intrinsically linked to the physical location were the vineyards are planted. It is the mission of Col d’Orcia to produce the best possible wines that the exceptional combination of soil and climate of this part of Montalcino can achieve.
Col D'Orcia was founded in 1970: one rich and very distinguished family from Siena acquired a modest vineyard in the Sant'Angelo area.
Since, the economy has gradually grown due to the acquisition of more and more new vineyards in the area. In 1973, the Cinzano family acquired the company Col D'Orcia, so that from that moment to the present day the owner of the farm was Count Francesco Marone Cinzano. The farm of Col D'Orcia is so well-groomed that it looks purely demonstrative, tourist. I can’t even believe that about 70 thousand bottles of wine are produced here every year!
