Terreno is situated in the heart of Chianti Classico, just outside the village of Greve. Here in beautiful Tuscany, wine has been cultivated since the time of the Romans.
We, the Ruhne family, started making wine here in 1988. Since then we have developed our own philosophy which runs through all our work. It’s the best of both worlds: Swedish pragmatism mixed with Italian creativity and respect for traditions..
Terreno works organically since 2014. The estate has a total of 150 hectares of which 20 hectares are vineyards and 10 hectares olive groves. The rest is mostly forest. We grow classical Tuscan grape varieties with the king of Tuscany´s cultivars, Sangiovese, taking the lead. It is followed by Canaiolo and Colorino amongst the red varieties, and Trebbiano and Malvasia among the white. A small number of international varieties complements the winemaking, and on average we make a 100 000 bottles a year.
Terreno is a modern winery in traditional Chianti Classico, headed by Sofia Ruhne who is the second generation in our family. The family works with the famous oenologist Federico Staderini and head of production Giacomo Fioravanti, both members of a dynamic and ambitious team.
Epicureans and those who enjoy the finer things in life will find a paradise at Terreno. We offer the possibility to experience life on a Tuscan vineyard first hand. Newly renovated traditional cottages offer comfortable accommodation which will make you feel at home immediately.
