PRODUCER PROFILE

Colombaia is not just a vineyard but an entire ecosystem of grapes, animals, vegetables, fruit and nuts all living in symbiosis with, and feeding into each other. The vines sit around the 16th century farmhouse, 220 metres up on the Colle di Val d’Elsa, on clay soil, rich in entire fossils and just 60km from the sea. The micro climate here is very special, sea breeze in the late afternoon gives freshness to the soil, as well as the wine, leaving a deep, salty, mineral influence on the palate. Each year, the vinification adapts in respect to the vintage. However, some things are constant: spontaneous fermentation using indigenous yeasts, no fining, no filtration and no additives. 

Each year, Helena and Dante adapt their labels to suit the changing weather - creating synthesis through visualising each vintage as it’s own unique colour. At Colombaia there is the perfect formula of new and old vines. The two vineyards are vinified separately resulting in Vigna Vecchia from 50-year- old vines and Vigna Nuova from 15-year-old vines. Working their vineyard as a big garden, whilst utilising biodynamic practices allows them to follow the rhythms of nature, helping the vine to reach the mineral elements of the soil and through sunlight, the essence and freshness of the grape. Helena and Dante stay as connected in the cellar, only bottling and releasing wines when they are ready.
