The estate was founded in 1999, after Massimo Piccin convinced his father to invest in the purchase of land and creation of wine-making estate in prospective Bolgheri DOC area. Being originally from North-Italian region of Veneto Massimo always felt passion for wine and wanted to embody this passion on his project. The estate comprising of an up-to-date winery and 40 hectares of land have been created practically from zero. The Sapaio vineyards are divided between the municipalities of Castagneto Carducci and Bibbona. The philosophy of Sapaio is based on experimentation and innovation: their research is directed towards new expressions of Bordeaux grapes in the Bolgheri region, with the objective of creating wines that combine power, elegance and longevity. The two wines they produce, both Bordeaux type blends, are created by combining various selections of grapes grown in the different vineyards. The names of the wines Sapaio and Volpolo derive from the names of two ancient Tuscan vines, Sapaia and Volpola, chosen to promote the local origin of the products starting right from their appellations.
