Founded in 1974 by the historic Avignonesi family in Montepulciano, today this winery is one of the most important in Tuscany and Italy.

Since 2009 the winery has been owned by Virgine Saverys, a Belgian entrepreneur who has decided to make her passion for oenology and fine wines a true mission, in order  to pursue ever greater excellence while respecting the surrounding environment.

In fact, at the heart of Avignonesi Winery there is a philosophy founded on the creation of organic products, obtained through biodynamic viticulture and sustainable agriculture. The winery’s excellence was confirmed in 2016 by the obtainment of the Organic Certification.

The vineyards of the Avignonesi Estate are located in Montepulciano and Cortona and extend for an area of approximately 175 hectares; Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is produced on the fields of Montepulciano, while Merlot, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon are produced on other lands.

The main winery is located in the Lodola estate in Valiano di Montepulciano, while the vinsanteria, the place where the Vin Santo and the prized “Occhio di Pernice” are left to mature inside the “caratelli”, is located in the Le Capezzine estate in Cortona.

Only biodynamic preparations are used in the vineyard, and green manure is frequently used, a technique that improves soil fertility by sowing a pure herbaceous crop and then burying it once it has reached the desired stage.

During the vinification process, only indigenous yeasts are used, while the wine is aged in large Slavonian oak barrels or French oak barriques.

The production includes: Nobile di Montepulciano (di Annata, in versions “Caprile”, “Il Grasso”, ” La Banditella”, Oceano”), Rosso di Montepulciano D.O.C., Avignonesi Da-Di Toscana I.G.T., Desiderio Cortona Doc Merlot, Grandi Annate, Capannelle – Avignonesi 50&50, Grappa di Vin Santo and grappa di Nobile di Montepulciano.
