The history and terroir of Casa di Terra
When Bolgheri is said, the reference is immediate to a single thought and that is: Bolgheri is equivalent to a land of great wines, so great as to raise this area to the honors of the chronicles and connoisseurs from all over the world. And it is precisely here that Casa di Terra is located, in Le Ferruggini, a few minutes from Bolgheri in the Municipality of Castagneto Carducci in Tuscany.
The family-run company was founded in the 1950s by the grandparents of the current owners, the brothers Giuliano and Gessica Frollani. A story that has formed over time and from an original farm has transformed over the years into what is now the reality of Casa di Terra.
The Philosophy of Casa di Terra wines
A transformation that took place thanks to the tireless work of innovation, research and investments, such as the first big step taken in 1997, in which the traditional cultivation order was changed, to a specific vitivinicultural crop with the first 2 hectares, Cabernet and Merlot plants.
To then move on to a second transformation step which took place in 2001, when the farming organization of the company was radically changed, planting vineyards on the entire surface. The grapes currently grown are: Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Vermentino, which rest on a unique mix of soils, where the mineral and micro-climatic conditions are exceptional, even for the nearby Tyrrhenian Sea, and guarantee a production of excellent wines.
Casa di Terra wines
And this is how Casa di Terra today extends over about 120 hectares, of which 46 are vines and cultivated with DOC Bolgheri and IGT Toscana vineyards and distributed over various prestigious areas of the denomination of the Consorzio di Tutela della Bolgheri Doc, of which the company is a member. The cellar, also supervised by the oenologist Emiliano Falsini who works in harmony with the director Edoardo Borraccini, has been renovated since 2013 and built in steel and concrete and equipped with all the technologies for processing grapes.

Terre Di Lavinia Vermentino Toscana IGT, which takes its name from Giuliano’s daughter, is a fresh wine with an eloquent nose, embellished with savory iodized notes, recalling the suggestions and scents of the Maremma coast.
And finally, the Bolle Di Terra Vino Spumante Brut which represents the experimentation and idea of every possible version of Vermentino. But the whole range is noteworthy, characterized by a strong territorial character and deserves to be discovered
