Poggio Argentiera was founded in 1997 with the purchase of the Adua farm, a property which went back to the early 20th century when the Maremma marshes began to be drained.
The 15 acres (six hectares) of vineyards began to produce grapes for a Morellino di Scansano and the new cellar was built. In 2001 the property was enlarged with the acquisition of another farm, Keeling, located in Baccinello, a hillside zone in the township of Scansano.
New vineyards were added to the older but prestigious existing ones, and today the winery owns over 50 acres (21 hectares) of vineyards all in the Morellino di Scansano appellation.
Company’s philosophy combines the work in the vineyard with the utmost respect for the vine and its production cycle and, starting from 2009, the management of the entire Estate has been converted following the principles and practices of organic agricolture and farming, with the objective of researching perfect balance between the vines and the surrounding environment.
Here soils are prevalently sandy and loamy with little clay and organic substances.
The situation at Keeling is quite di erent, here the altitude on the hillsides of Scansano is higher. ¬e nature sloping of the terrain, the exposure, and the very stony composition of the soil have made it possible to plant and work vineyards of exceptional potential and unique characteristics.
