About Le Macchiole

Founded in 1983 on a nine-acre plot, Le Macchiole is Bolgheri’s best-known boutique producer. Hometown hero Eugenio Campolmi and wife Cinzia Merli... launched Le Macchiole with a big dream and almost no money, starting their estate by planting a handful of grape varietals with scattershot abandon, experimenting to see which grapes flourished in the estate’s mineral-rich soils, and crafting mono-varietal expressions from their vines. Sadly, Eugenio passed away unexpectedly in 2002, but Cinzia continued in his footsteps. Cinzia hired her brother, Massimo Merli, as estate manager, methodically added acreage, carefully fine-tuned the viticultural protocol, and steadily raised the bar with every vintage. Today, Le Macchiole’s 54 acres are farmed biodynamically, and the estate produces a range of six wines: three mono-varietal reds, as well as two blends, one white and one red. Cinzia still helms the estate, now aided by her sons, Elia and Mattia, who are ensuring the future of Le Macchiole’s terroir-driven, elegant, and showstopping wines.
