  • ABOUT THE WINERY

    Since 1008! One of the founding

    fathers of Vino Nobile wine.

    Contucci is an historic Montepulciano family winery with winemaking roots that can be traced back to the year 1008. Today the 41st generation of Contucci make wine, the same way their ancestors once did. The current Contucci winery was built in the early 1500s and we were one of the few “founding fathers” of the formal region in 1773. The family home was built on top of the winery  (architected by Antonio Sangallo and then painted by Andrea Pozzo), which itself was built on what was the medieval wall protecting Montepulciano.
