Massa Vecchia farm is located in the upper Maremma in Tuscany, on the slopes of the Metalliferous Hills, at the bottom of the hill where the town of Massa Marittima stands. It is a small concern with 6 hectars of vineyards, 1.5 of olives and 0.8 of grain. It produces around 15,000 bottles of wine each year and olive oil in small quantities.
The farm was founded in 1985 by Fabrizio Niccolaini and taken forward by him with his wife, Patrizia Bartolini. Since 2009 it has been run by Francesca Sfrondrini, Patrizia’s daughter, and her partners, Daniel and Ines Wattenhofer, Thomas Frischknecht and Rocco Delli Colli.
The vineyards are worked solely by hand, with self -produced natural fertilizers, the only treatments used are sulphur and copper. The same approach is taken with our old olive grove. No additional chemicals are used in the winery. Our practice is to make wine without the addition of sulphur.
