The first documents that tell us about Montecarlo’s wine go back to year 846, but the production of wine is dated previously, probably going back to the Etruscan civilization. Consider that the name of the first borough, destroyed in 1300, was Vivinaia translated as the "road of wine".
Montecarlo offers some excellent red wines although it’s mainly an area reknowned for white wine, well known over the years by Popes, lords and princes.
International grape vines, such as Sauvignon, White Pinot, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah have been in use for more than two centuries and have adapted well to this particular Tuscan soil. Mixed with the local vines, Sangiovese and Trebbiano, you obtain a very high quality wine.
