Elisabetta Foradori founded Ampeleia in 2002 with her friends Giovanni Podini and Thomas Widmann. Set mostly in the highlands of Maremma, the estate encompasses 35 hectares of vineyards, with each site varying in altitude, terroir, and microclimate. The land is farmed organically and biodynamically, and the winemaking is natural and non-interventionist. The focus is mainly on Cabernet Franc and Alicante Nero (the Tuscan name for Grenache), with smaller plantings of Carignan, Sangiovese, Mourvèdre, Trebbiano, Inzolia, and others.
