Pian dell'Orino

The environment of Montalcino, with its hillsides and many different exposures, is characterised by highly variable micro-climates and types of soil.
Listening has always been the key to understanding such complexity: the land and the plants, the people and their traditions have enabled us to get closer to the rhythms of the natural processes that occur in the place we safeguard.
Respecting its uniqueness in our work is the fundamental condition to recognising its value and to be able to find it again in the wine we produce.
The best way to show respect is through a type of agriculture that protects correlations and balances existing in the habitat rather than altering them, promoting the best possible harmony between vineyard, climate, land, and human beings.
The grapes we harvest are the genuine and unrepeatable expression of a vintage, a place, and our actions – the wines of Pian dell’Orino become their testimony.

About us

Pian dell’Orino is an organism made of land, plants, and people.
Jan is in charge of production and is helped by Johanna and Riccardo in all stages of his work, in the vineyard and garden, during sowing and olive tree training, as well as in the cellar; they are all profoundly and emotionally bound to this place and its fruits.
Caroline is the administrative soul of Pian dell’Orino and, together with Susanne, she takes care of the precious relationships existing with clients and partners, taking our message farther.
