Welcome to Valdonica!

Valdonica happened to me, it was not planned. I was looking for a small summer house in the beautiful Tuscany and Valdonica found me. I was enchanted by the beauty of the untouched nature here. A few years after finding this place, my life changed completely and I moved here, Valdonica has become my new home.

Looking forward to welcoming you,

Martin & Team

Located in the hills of Maremma, in Southern Tuscany

Grapes and hearts are spoilt by the magic view across rolling hills, the fertile flatlands and the blue sparkling Mediterranean Sea. This is where we planted 15 hectares/30 acres of vineyards in virginal soil – all organic. We focus on making world-leading wines from re-cultivated, forgotten grapes, home in Tuscany. All our wines mature in barrique and stainless steal – in our newly built Cantina.

Welcome to my winery, welcome to Valdonica
Guest-rooms are built into the CANTINA – the building we also make our wines in -, into CAPO PAGIANO – the historic Manor House from the 13th century -, as well as into our VILLA – nestled into our vineyards. Some materials are historic, some are organic – and we follow the latest sustainable energy concepts. Small details and precious materials add to the quality of Valdonica. Guests discover here their own Valdonica spirit – and they return to flourish it!

Growing the traditional values of Tuscany
Cultivating healthy grapes, creating leading wines and living warm hospitality. Our spirit grows in our values:

  • Multicultural with a deep connection to Tuscan traditions.
  • Team above individualism
  • Passion, Love and Dedication for what we do
