Discovery tasting: Querciabella

17 May, 2021 @ 4:00 pm 5:00 pm BST

Querciabella has to be one of the most famous wine names in Tuscany. One of the original Super Tuscan producers having first released their flagship wine Camartina in 1982.

The Sommelier Collective has secured a fabulous tasting with winemaker Manfred Ing, winemaker and director Giorgio Fragiacomo straight from the tasting room at their estate, including an exclusive first tasting of the new Camartina 2016.

With some of the highest vineyards in Chianti, from the outset they were committed to producing a more elegant, terroir-focused wine than their contemporaries: the Burgundy to Bolgheri’s Bordeaux.

In Chianti, the vines across the communes of Greve, Radda, and Gaiole, their wines are a mosaic of different micro-plots – sometimes a single row – all harvested and vinified individually under the expert guidance of winemaker Manfred Ing. Alongside their land in the heart of Chianti Classico, Querciabella also established plots in Maremma on the Tuscan coast in 2000, and today they are the represent the largest holdings of certified vegan and organic vineyards in Italy.

Sustainability has always been at the heart of Querciabella – working with Organic methods since 1988 and certified in 2000, biodynamic practices since 2000, and 100% vegan since 2010. Today, they practice a unique form of plant-based biodynamics that is tailored specifically to their location and style.
