De Vinosalvo is a small vintner producing hand-crafted wines from selected parcels of fruit grown in its own vineyards near Cinigiano in the Tuscan Maremma. With an australo-italian emigrée as our winemaker and chief dreamer, it’s only natural that we grow Shiraz (but also Sangiovese) as the basis for great Mediterranean reds. A fitting symbol of our company philosophy is the name we have borrowed from a fundamental figure in the history of oenology: GALFRIDUS DE VINOSALVO.  A mediaeval writer and sage who was born in England and worked and travelled widely in Europe, Galfridus researched the agricultural writings of the ancient world and authored the first printed volume on winemaking - De vino et vitibus conservandis - thus earning himself the moniker de Vinosalvo.
