Bindella was founded in 1984 by Swiss entrepreneur Rudi Bindella who acquired the existing estate, with 30ha of vineyard land, 7ha filled with olive orchards and the rest left to cattle and wild hoods. The estate is located in the renowned sub-zone known as ’Argiano’, one of the long renowned vine-sites in the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano appellation, noted for its loose sandy soil and the harmonious finesse of the resulting Sangiovese-based wines. The philosophy of production at Bindella is simple: producing genuine and authentic Rosso Montepulciano and Vino Nobile Montepulciano Docg perpetuating the traditional vinification protocol (long macerations with native yeasts and patient wood ageing in a mix of Slavonia oak casks and old Tonneaux), with a firm loyalty to Montepulciano’s native grapes (Prugnolo Gentile, Mammolo, Canaiolo, Colorino, Trebbiano Toscano and Malvasia del Chianti). Bindella has been one of the first wineries in Tuscany to experiment with biologic agriculture, as early as the mid 1980’s, and though not officially certified the vineyards are farmed with green sowing and no use of chemical compounds, herbicides, pesticides and anti-fungal biotechnologies.
