Guido and Igiea Zampaglione


Tenuta Grillo & Il Tufiello

CUVÉES FEATURED ON LA CABANE e-CELLAR

Tenuta Grillo Estate is run directly by the owners, Guido and Igiea, and it spreads over 32 hectares of which 17 are dedicated to the vineyard. The production is based on low yields, and usually only 6 h. are harvested, in order to select only the best grapes, suitable for long macerations. The winery is located just outside Mombaruzzo, 350 meters over the sea, focusing on scrupulous selection of the grapes, respect for nature and traditions.
