About the winery

In the last decade of the 19th Century Count Tobler, a Swiss nobleman who loved Italy, created the Ripalte Estate by reclaiming the Southern point of the Island, 450 hectares of Mediterranean maquis. The Estate Farm on Elba was famous for its animals, fruit, oil and especially for its magnificent wine. The whole district ( 420 hectares), that made up one of the largest farming estates on the island( the famous Tobler Farm and Later Rpialte Farm) had been completely abandoned by the previous owners who had used the lands as a hunting reserve.

In 2002 the estate owners decided to re-cultivate the celebrated vine growing areas and now 10 hectares of new vineyards occupy the finest coastal fields.

More than half of the crop are Aleatico grapes, coming from the most prestigious grapevine grown on the Island of Elba, produced by the Poggio Turco Vineyards. The wine itself is a complex, sweet, pleasurable passito wine.The vines are planted on very difficult soil. Due to the fact that the soil is stony and does not retain water the grape production is reduced but the quality of the grapes is very good. No chemical products are used for the phyto-sanitation treatments and the limited fertilizer applied is organic.
