Located in Tuscany, Corte Pavone extends for 16 hectares across the scenic Montalcino hillsides at an altitude of 500 meters, the vineyards surrounded by fields and thick Mediterranean scrub. This unique landscape and climate along with the light, clayey soil contribute greatly to the wine’s character.
The estate has belonged to the Loacker family since 1996, established by Rainer Loacker who for 20 years worked in the chocolate wafer business before making the plunge into the wine business. Rainer was an organic pioneer when he first started out, opting to use more natural treatments instead of pesticides on his vines. Gradually he made the transition to biodynamic farming. Today, Loacker only uses homeopathic treatments on their vines, and 3 years ago, a new bio-architectural cellar was constructed at the heart of the winery.
