"We are proud to say: at Batzella, the wine artisan has become artist to interpret the territory of Bolgheri" (Khan and Franco). The Batzella winery is located in Badia, in the heart of the Tuscan rolling hills of Bolgheri, overlooking the sea. Founded in 2000, at the helm of the company there are Khanh Nguyen and Franco Batzella, aiming to produce elegant Tuscan wines with great personality, genuine and capable of expressing the Bolgheri terroir at their best. In Bolgheri, soil and microclimate allow Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc Bordeaux wines - now native in this area - to reach full ripeness, creating distinctly original wines, as well as elegant and powerful.
The passion of Khan and Franco comes to life in the vineyard, along 7.5 hectares of vineyards halfway between Castagneto Carducci and Bolgheri. Passion and technique, intuition and dedication, but, above all, respect for nature, for grapes. The Batzella philosophy pursues the principles of a "raisonnée culture" founded on the minimum intervention in the vineyard, working manually and carefully throughout the year, to optimize maturation, green harvest, to keep productivity low and the aromas and flavors to the maximum. The commitment of the Batzellas stands every day in the vineyard, providing a microbiologically active and self sustained ecosystem, progressively reducing the use of synthetic substances, taking care of the soil towards its natural fertility and transferring the capacity of self-defense in the vines through a living and healthy soil. Though all these efforts, Batzella's objective is to cultivate and produce the best grapes in the vineyard. This is how successful Tuscan wines are born, appreciated by enthusiasts and critics all over the world.
