For nearly three centuries, the Bocelli family has crafted classic Italian wines from their small Estate in Lajatico, Tuscany. While the operation is currently managed closely by world-famous opera singer Andrea Bocelli and his brother Alberto, a renowned architect, the spirit of family style continues with the full-time involvement of Cinzia, Alberto’s wife, and their son Alessio.
To this day, you would not be surprised to find Edi Bocelli, best known as “Mamma” keeping a watchful eye on the fields and carefully hand-tying the prized family vines.
The family farm was settled in 1730 by Bartolomeo Bocelli. From the very beginning, the Bocelli family have been people of the land, cultivating grains, animals, honey, olive oil, and of course, wine. In the 1930’s, Alcide Bocelli, the grandfather of Alberto and Andrea Bocelli, became increasingly serious about expanding the vineyards and modernising the operation. This work was continued by his son, Alessandro, and Alessandro’s wife Edi; and today by Alberto and Andrea Bocelli.
