What shaped Caiarossa was not everyday logic but vision; the desire to create a true oasis in which to live and make wine, the Tuscan dream linking not only beauty and simplicity but also simplicity and value.
In 2004, Caiarossa was acquired by Eric Albada Jelgersma, a Dutch entrepreneurwith a great passion for wine and also the owner of Château Giscours and Château du Tertre – two Grand Crus classé in Margaux, Bordeaux.
Wines of Caiarossa and the estate itself, are not only aimed at lovers of wine, but also those who are passionate about life and beauty!
Today, Caiarossa extends over 39 hectares at an altitude of 150 to 250 meters above sea level. Fourteen hectares have been planted to vineyard and, along a steep north facing slope, there are 100 century old olive trees (of the Frantoio, Leccino and Moraiolo variety) from which a small quantity of fragrant extra-virgin olive oil is produced each year. The rest of the property is virgin woodland.
There are currently 11 grape varieties planted: Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre for the reds; Chardonnay, Viognier and Petit Manseng for the whites.
