Biodynamic was a inevitable choice to encourage life in the soil, allowing micro-organisms to multiply and creating a rich, nutritious materials for the grapes. The wines become more complex as a result and the plants stay healthy exuding the joy of living.

VILLA LE PRATA

Villa Le Prata was built in the 1860 by Count De’ Vecchi. Later, the house became the country home of the Bishop of MontalcinoMassimo Losappio and his wife, Marialuce, acquired the Villa in 1980.
Driven by a passion for wine and the pleasure of sharing the bounty of this land with friends, Prof. Losappio chose to plant the first hectare of vineyard near the Villa, at 500 meters above sea level.
Subsequently, he planted two more vineyards in the area of Castelnuovo Dell’Abate, at 200 and 250 meters above sea level.
These three vineyards in three different areas create the perfect combination of aromas and perfumes offered by the altitude and the body and structure found only in this land south of Montalcino.
We currently produce 15,000 bottles of Brunello di Montalcino, 5000 of Rosso di Montalcino and only in the best vintages, 600 bottles of Brunello di Montalcino Selection / Reserve "Massimo".

Villa Le Prata is a very small winery where the members of the family work with great passion to obtain only highest quality wines.
