THE ORNELLAIA STORY
The Ornellaia story is one of vision and determination. Established in 1981, Ornellaia immediately went on a quest for excellence.
ORNELLAIA AND BOLGHERI, AN UNBREAKABLE BOND
Ornellaia has always been an expression of the close bond between humans and nature. From the launch of Ornellaia in 1985 to the beautiful Bellaria vineyards, from the debut of Italy’s first ever second vin, Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia, to the Vendemmia d’Artista project and the creation of Ornellaia Bianco, the story of Ornellaia is fast paced as well as being a source of pride and inspiration.
Owned by the Frescobaldi family, many men and women have defined the Ornellaia story. Some are no longer with us, while many others are essential parts of Ornellaia’s current incarnation and working towards its future. Marchese Ferdinando Frescobaldi is President of Ornellaia alongside Giovanni Geddes da Filicaja, CEO since 1999, and Axel Heinz, Estate Director.
THE LOYALTY OF WINE CONNOISSEURS ALL OVER THE WORLD
The Ornellaia Archivio Storico was inaugurated in 2017, but the test of time has only just begun. Every vintage is a new page in the story of Ornellaia. Forty years since its founding, the Ornellaia name is synonymous with the Italian lifestyle and represents a timeless elegance.
THE FRESCOBALDI FAMILY
Winemakers for 700 years, the Frescobaldi family bring together a creative mindset, pursuit of excellence and a deep respect for tradition.
Cultivating and celebrating local diversity has always been their philosophy, respecting the identity and independence of each wine estate.
ORNELLAIA, A PROUD AND INDEPENDENT WINE, IS A JEWEL IN THE FRESCOBALDI WORLD. TODAY AND TOMORROW.
Continuity, curiosity and taking careful steps guide generations of the Frescobaldi family.
At Ornellaia, this approach has brought together an international team that is part of the extended family.
