What with their appearing to be a worldwide greenwashing of wineries, it is most heartening to see a house that takes the whole concept of sustainability very seriously indeed.

The investment that Tuscany’s Salcheto have made to ensure that their off-grid, Montepulciano-based winery checks all of the boxes when it comes to such matters is really quite astonishing. It costs a pretty penny to achieve such a level of sustainability for a medium-sized and commercially viable enterprise

Now that’s all well and good, but the question is, is the wine any good? Thankfully it is, with their wines winning both accolades and hearts the world over, from Gambero Rosso to the Wine Advocate.

We sat down with Mario Turrini, Salcheto’s General Manager, to get the full story of this quite remarkable Tuscan jewel.
