Poderi Arcangelo is a renowned organic winery run by third-generation grower, Sandra Mora in the hills of Siena. Her grandfather, Giuseppe Mora started producing wine in 1956, from a small vineyard near the "Casa dell'Arcangelo". His son, Bruno, planted their best vineyards between 1995 and 2006.
Since Sandra has taken over the reins of Podere Arcangelo, she has focused on producing wines from local grapes such as Ciliegiolo, Sangiovese, and their specialty, Vernaccia di San Gimignano, which was the first wine to be awarded DOC status in 1966.
The winery has been certified organic since 2000. Sandra believes in making wines of the utmost integrity by abandoning the use of herbicides and replacing chemical fertilizers with natural options. Poderi Arcangelo has a 50 kw photovoltaic system that makes them entirely sustainable in their use of electricity in the winery.
The property is located on hilly countryside at about 240 meters above sea level, making organic cultivation easier as the altitude helps prevent fungal diseases and mildew. They are producing about 200,000 liters of wine per year on 25 hectares of vineyard.
