Azienda Agricola Chiappini was established in Bolgheri by Giovanni Chiappini and comprises 17 hectares of hand-harvested vineyards on 27 hectares of his property. The Chiappini family moved to the area from the Marche region in the 1950s and only sold wine in bulk until 1978. Giovanni’s first vintage was in 1999 with Felciaino. He learned winemaking at the feet of his father and the rest of his family. While Giovanni is responsible for the vineyards and wine production, his daughters Martina and Lisa, who joined him as soon as their studies permitted, manage sales, marketing and the cellar. Their winery is located on the Via Bolgherese, immediately adjacent to Orenellaia and Le Macchiole. Giovanni farms his vineyards organically.
