The Michele Satta company originated in 1983 at Castagneto Carducci, in the heart of the Bolgheri D.O.C., of which Michele was one of the founders; it is a region inhabited by important families and wine entrepreneurs who have made their mark on the wine production history of Tuscany in the last 30 years.
The estate is family-run, with a now constant size of 25 hectares, and currently produces 150,000 bottles a year, all obtained from its own grapes.
The philosophy of the Michele Satta estate draws its origin from the life of its founder: a boundless, all-inclusive passion for agriculture that he picked up during his initial experience as a laborer on the farm at Castagneto Carducci.
One Passion: Wine
Between 1983 and 1987 this passion was focused on a single product, wine, because“wine is grapes that are transformed, that become something else, which is a great deal more attractive and good and which changes over time; something that inebriates you a little and opens up a space in your heart”.
What is more, wine is also a unique expression of its region, of a vineyard, of the type of grape that is planted in it, of time, and of the way in which man has dedicated to it his passion, his intuition, his errors: how he has bent a cane, how many buds he has left, and how he has worked the soil.
