Guado Al Melo
The link with Bolgheri of the Scienza family, winemakers through generations in Trentino, was born thanks to prof. Attilio Scienza (Michele’s father). He frequented the territory from the late ’70s: he collaborated with some local wineries, followed the changes in the DOC and conducted the study of viticulture zonation of the territory. By now, he knew the territory inch by inch.
When we heard about this little estate on sale, Attilio well knew that it was in the best area of the Denomination. The place was magical and enchanting, secluded through the hills and the woods. We also discovered that it was dedicated to vineyard at least since 200 years. We couldn’t resisted so many reasons to fall in love! We purchased it in 1998 and our new life in Bolgheri started.
The estate had changed several names in the past. We wanted to tie it to the territory, as usual in Tuscany. “Guado al Melo” (Ford at the Apple Tree) is the ancient name of the place, thanks to a ford on the Fossa di Bolgheri creek. This torrent surrounds our vineyards and the nature of our alluvial soils is due to it.
