Orcia, a Wine and a Land

The Orcia Doc became an official designation on February 14, 2000, thanks to the tenacity of several producers who were also founders of the Consorzio.

The Sangiovese grape is fundamental to Orcia wines.

This noble vine is the “fil rouge” that ties the history of our wine together. The Consortium also sponsors an important cultural event each year in April—the “Orcia Wine Festival. ” The territory in which Orcia wine is produced lies between the districts of Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, two of the most important areas in Italy for the production of great wines. Twelve municipalities are involved in the territory of the Doc Orcia: Buonconvento, Castiglione d’Orcia, Pienza, Radicofani, San Quirico d’Orcia and Trequanda, as well as parts of the lands of Abbadia San Salvatore, Chianciano Terme, Montalcino, San Casciano dei Bagni, Sarteano and Torrita di Siena.

Wines produced in the territory of the Orcia reflect the passion that producers bring to their daily work: from the care of their vineyards to the sale of the final product. Orcia wine is the communal masterpiece of the families and cultivators whose skill as vintners is married to a deep respect for nature.
