The winery overlooks the Elsa Valley and faces towards the Monteriggioni castle. It tells the tale of the immense determination and tireless efforts of its founder, Giulio Gambelli.
Giulio Gambelli was a famed winemaker of his time. He was renowned for his famous and long-standing relationships with Case Basse di Soldera and Montevertine. Their association and alliance with Gambelli that continued for decades still gets represented and expressed in the wines produced by Tenuta di Bibbiano. The drinks bring out the unique character of the traditional approach and technique of winemaking and their commitment to perfection. In recent times, Federico and Tommaso Marrocchesi Marzi are the fifth generation of the founding family. They manage and handle the working and operations of the winery.
The vineyards owned by Tenuta di Bibbiano cover a total area of approximately 25 hectares. They lie at an elevation that ranges between 270 meters to 300 meters above sea level.
