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 is certified organic since 2014. The estate has a total of 150 hectares of which 20 hectares are vineyards and 10 hectares olive groves and the rest is mostly. 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 estate in traditional Chianti Classico, fully self-sufficient with regards to energy and water supply. Headed by Sofia Ruhne who is the second generation in our family.
Terreno’s vineyard restaurant is open from early spring to late autumn. Here head chef serves elegant dishes prepared with local ingredients and vegetables from our organic garden. Our winery offers a unique setting for everything from wine tastings and private parties to weddings and special events – do not hesitate to contact us for more information.
