Antinori Castello della Sala

The history of Antinori Castello della Sala is a captivating tale that spans several centuries. Located in Umbria, Italy, the castle dates back to the 14th century, having been built in 1350 by Angelo Monaldeschi della Vipera. The Antinori family, one of Italy's most prominent and historic winemaking families, acquired Castello della Sala in 1940. This acquisition marked a significant expansion of their winemaking activities beyond their traditional Tuscan roots.

A winery with a rich history

The castle is perched on a picturesque hilltop, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, creating an ideal environment for producing high-quality wines. The Antinori family's vision for Castello della Sala was to produce exceptional white wines, distinct from the reds they were renowned for in Tuscany. Over the years, they have achieved this through meticulous vineyard management and innovative winemaking techniques.

One of the estate's most famous wines is Cervaro della Sala, a blend of Chardonnay and Grechetto, first produced in 1985. This wine has gained international acclaim for its elegance, complexity, and aging potential. The introduction of modern viticulture practices and technology at Castello della Sala has been pivotal in maintaining the high standards set by the Antinori family.

A combination of tradition and innovation

Castello della Sala is also home to a variety of other wines, including Conte della Vipera and Bramito del Cervo, each showcasing the unique terroir of the region. The estate's historic cellars, carved into the rock beneath the castle, provide an ideal environment for aging wines. These cellars are a testament to the blend of tradition and innovation that characterizes the Antinori approach to winemaking.

Today, Castello della Sala continues to be a symbol of the Antinori family's dedication to excellence and their commitment to preserving the heritage of Italian winemaking. The estate's success is a result of their ability to balance respect for history with a forward-looking approach to viticulture and enology. Through Castello della Sala, the Antinori family has significantly contributed to the global reputation of Italian white wines.
