Tenuta Luce della Vite
This ambitious project took the name of Tenuta Luce, a name that evokes the sunlight of Montalcino, which is the source of life and nourishment, and marks the passage of the seasons and sets the pace for any and every agricultural activity. Since then, Tenuta Luce has always honoured this vision and the symbolic wine of the Tenuta, Luce, has been joined by other exclusive wines, capable of going beyond the boundaries of their territory and earning unanimous approval nationally and internationally.
In 2005, Lamberto Frescobaldi, Vittorio’s son, inherited the direction of the Tenuta Luce project. Today, he is responsible for all production guidelines, from the vineyard to the creation of the blends of each vintage. His work, driven by deep respect for the land and its people, results in transforming the fruits of the grapevines into fine wines, which reflect the beauty of the land where they are born.
In 2016, following the latest acquisition, Tenuta Luce equipped itself with a new winery, an underground structure perfectly integrated into the land of Montalcino. Here we find the Luce Collection that, like an ancient library, preserves and tells the whole story of Luce. Here too, as in the vineyards, the values of Tenuta Luce guide every choice. Alongside the beauty of nature found in vineyards, here, in the winery, we find beauty built by man to inspire us to ever better work.
Following an attentive iconographic study, the graphical representation of Luce fell to a golden sun with twelve flames. A sun that holds a double meaning, it is a source of life and nourishment while at the same time standing as a reference to the roots of our Tuscan cultural tradition. In past centuries, especially in Tuscany, the symbol of the Sun has in fact occupied a prominent place in both civil and religious iconography.
The historic representation that Luce’s logo mostly draws inspiration from is the sun found on the main altar of Santo Spirito in Florence, a basilica built on land donated by the Frescobaldi family. The ever-recurring cycles of human history, the infinite cycle of generations and of existences. The altar, a masterpiece of the ducal production between 1599 and 1607, is decorated with an inlay that enhances the color of the lapis lazuli, onyx and different marbles.
Founded in 2005, the Barons de Rothschild Champagne House has established strong relationships with partner producers to craft champagnes of a rare elegance from exceptional terroirs and rigorously selected grapes. “Accomplishing through great achievements”, such has been the Rothschild family’s ambition for more than 250 years. Through the strength of its wine-growing experience, the family has joined forces with producers from Champagne to develop excellent champagnes which bring together know-how and tradition.
Anthonij Rupert Wyne was founded on the farm L’Ormarins in Franschhoek. Originally owned by the late Anthonij Rupert, who passed away in 2001, the farm was taken over by his brother Johann Rupert in 2003. It was Johann Rupert who constructed a state-of-the-art winemaking facility on the estate, and the beginnings of what was to become a sprawling enterprise with a focus on terroir-specific wines.
Takara has great experience in producing Shochu , Mirin and Sake for more than one-and-a-half centuries. Because Takara’s main business endeavors depend heavily on the mastery of natural processes such as fermentation, the Company feels a strong responsibility toward preserving the natural environment.
Certain names resonate strongly within Australian wine history and Jim Barry is one of them. It was Jim Barry’s drive that helped shape South Australia’s Clare Valley as a benchmark producer of world class Riesling and cemented it as one of Australia’s premier wine regions.
The House was established in Reims in 1843, by Joseph Krug, a visionary non-conformist with an uncompromising philosophy. Having understood that the true essence of Champagne is pleasure itself, his dream was to craft the very best Champagne he could offer, every single year, regardless of annual variations in climate.
