Corte Pavone is a visually unique experience where you can see all the way from a 16 hectare vineyard to the horizon of the Tuscan hills, sun kissed by a unique light at the front of which lies the town of Montalcino.
Different aromatic herbs such as rosemary, thyme and lavender adorn the sweet hillsides and their suggestive aromas characterize the future Brunello di Montalcino.
The winery is organically certified. The use of chemicals in the vineyards has been eliminated and replaced with biodynamic and homeopathic preparations.
The unique climate and light, clayey soil are at the base of this wine’s character. The grapes, organically farmed and carefully selected, are gently processed in the winery and the wine ages in oak casks until it slowly becomes a Corte Pavone Brunello di Montalcino.
The heart of the winery is composed of the new bio-architectural cellar inaugurated three years ago. 
Wine lovers visiting the winery can choose from a number of tours and visit the estate and the vineyards and enjoy wine tastings and organic Tuscan food in the light filled tasting room with magnificent views of historic Montalcino.
This winery is part of the Italian Organic Wine Route.
