About us

Company details

The Máté Winery is an organic family-owned and run estate in the prestigious Santa Restituta zone - the temperate, seaward zone of Montalcino. Among its 27 hectares of Mediterranean woods of herbs and wild fruit are 6,5 hectares of vineyards, planted in extremely varied terroir between 300 and 400 meters above sea level. Varietals and clones, specifically chosen for these various sites and planted to a high density, include Sangiovese (in fossil-filled tuffo), Merlot (in sandy clay), Cabernet Sauvignon (in galestro), and Syrah (on mineral-rich, southern terraces). The selected hand-picked grapes are fermented in small temperature-controlled stainless steel and wood vats, and the wines are aged for up to three years in barriques, tonneaux and 40 HL vats of Allier French oak.

 

HISTORY

Ferenc Máté, author of The Hills of Tuscany and A Vineyard in Tuscany, and his wife Candace, a painter, left New York City in 1990 for the Tuscan countryside. They bought an ancient, abandoned farm with two hills, a canyon with waterfalls and a 13th century friary with a tower and courtyard. Their neighbors were world-renowned wine makers Angelo Gaja and Gianfranco Soldera. Being perfectionists, the Mátés performed a “museum quality” restoration of the friary, then hired Gaja’s agronomist and France’s Pierre Guillaume to select the best varietals and clones for their fields' wonderfully varied expositions, elevations and soil compositions. Their Syrah and Merlot debued in 2006 from the difficult 2002 vintage. Their success was immediate: Wine & Spirits gave the Merlot an outstanding score, and Dr. Michael Apstein of the Boston Globe, rated the Syrah 92 points, calling it, “remarkable: luscious…gorgeously layered and seductive.“ Their wines, especially their Brunellos, continue to receive 'Outstanding'  and 'Classic' scores and recognition for their excellence. A Vineyard in Tuscany, translated into 14 languages, has sold over a million copies worldwide and is considered to be an excellent marketing tool by importers and distributors.
