FATTORIA LE PUPILLE

Elisabetta Geppetti is a woman of exceptional energy, determination and vision.

She was only 20 years old when, in 1985 she first took the reins at her family’s tiny 2 hectare property near Pereta in the Scansano zone.

It was a time when Tuscan wines were at a low ebb, those of Scansano almost non-existent – and women winemakers were practically unheard of.

Le Pupille, a winery that has become a synonym for quality and a pioneer of excellence.

The original wine made here was Morellino di Scansano which, to this day, remains the mainstay of production. With her steadfast vision, Elisabetta added an international aspect to the estate which manifested itself in the Maremma’s first Super Tuscan, the Cabernet-based Saffredi which was first released in 1989.

Other innovations followed soon after, though Elisabetta was careful to keep her international varieties separate from her Sangiovese based wines. The most important addition to the range following Saffredi was the singlevineyard Poggio Valente.

Elisabetta is truly an undisputed star of the Italian wine scene having spent 3 decades tirelessly promoting her beloved Morellino di Scansano region and outstanding estate, whilst also finding the time to raise 5 children. A power house of talent and one of Tuscany’s wine royalty, one cannot fail to be enchanted by her superb wines.
