About Biondi-Santi

Without the Biondi-Santi family’s Il Greppo estate, Brunello wouldn’t exist. Clemente Santi made the first wine called Brunello in 1869, and his son... Ferruccio further isolated the BBS1 clone of the Sangiovese grape, which the family had named “Brunello,” or the little brown one. Ferruccio, who founded the Il Greppo estate in 1880, dedicated his life’s work to crafting a long-aging monovarietal wine with this grape. Tancredi Biondi-Santi, Ferruccio’s son, brought Brunello to the world and instilled practices like “topping off” aging bottles of Brunello Riserva. Franco Biondi-Santi, who passed away in 2013, maintained the estate’s traditions and created a legacy in the process. Today’s Il Greppo is helmed by Jacopo and Alessandra Biondi-Santi, Franco’s children, though French corporation EPI holds a majority stake in the estate. Under this new control, Biondi-Santi’s vineyards are being replanted and upgrades are being made to the cantina; however, the 67-acre Il Greppo estate continues its practice of crafting fine, age-worthy Brunello and captivating Rosso di Montalcino wines. Indeed, the estate extended the aging time of its Brunello from five to six years, and it’s started special paired releases of a recent Brunello Riserva with a mature bottling, both commitments to the belief that while time may pass, but a Biondi-Santi Brunello is eternal.

About Comte de Vogüé

Comte de Vogüé can trace its roots to 1450, but even more impressive is that Comte de Vogüé holds an unwavering position as a leader in fine... Burgyndy wine. One of the most important, most influential, and most consistent Burgundy estates, Comte de Vogüé has a long and storied history, and today the twentieth generation of the Comte de Vogüé family, Claire de Causans and Marie de Ladoucette, the granddaughters of the late Comte Georges de Vogüé helm the estate with the aid of winemaker Jean Lupatelli, who took over in 2021 when François Millet left to start his own domaine.
