Stella di Compalto

The San Giuseppe Winery takes its name from the sharecropping estate established by Giuseppe Martelli in 1910. Abandoned in 1940, the estate was then acquired by our family in 1992.

The Winery is located to the south of the town of Montalcino, just a stone's throw from Saint Antimo Abbey. This church - located in an isolated position surrounded by lush greenery - was first built in the Roman epoch, and it remains a stunning sight, a masterful exercise in simplicity and purity, its white alabaster diffusing the soft sunlight. Here at the Winery, we work hard to preserve the harmony of the natural environment - we feel fortunate to be guests in a generous land protected by Mount Amiata. We have every intention of continuing to be a small-scale producer with just a few plots - this way, we can walk around our vineyards personally and get to know them a little better every day.

The company was founded by our family and has grown with it. The estate extends across 13.45 hectares on what is an integral piece of land around the cellar complex - an area that is home to woodlands, olives groves (planted in 1920) and 5.5 hectares of vineyards.
