Podere Guado al Melo
Podere Guado al Melo - The vineyard in the heart of Bolgheri
In the heart of the Bolgheri DOC lies the family business of Prof. Scienza, who has come from Trentino to Tuscany. Prof. Scienza produced his first vintage in 2002 together with his son Michele, who also gained winegrowing experience in Germany.
The Podere Guado al Melo vineyard extends over 10 hectares and is situated on a hill just behind the sea. The family has dedicated itself to Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Sangiovese, Merlot and Vermentino.
The young owner, Michele Scienza, comes from an old family of winegrowers who had their own business in Trentino. After studying oenology, he worked in Germany and Italy. At the vineyard and in the cellar, integrated crop protection and a high level of environmental protection are at the forefront in order to be able to supply our customers not only with wines of the highest quality, but also with natural purity. In cooperation with other wine-growing companies and the university, intensive research continues to pursue this goal.
The soil is on the one hand very clayey with pebbles, other soils are sandy clay. The climate is dry, mild, windy and with mild winters. There is a large thermal fluctuation between day and night. The cellar of Guado al Melo is only now being built, completely underground, so that the atmosphere of the area is not disturbed.
