Stories of places and people

The Guado al Melo winery is located in the hills along the coast of Tuscany, in the heart of the Bolgheri DOC zone.
The efforts of winegrower Michele Scienza and his family provide the winery’s direction.
With generations of rich viticultural experience, they manage their wine estate in accord with the principles of sustainable and natural agriculture, and their wines are made with sound respect for tradition, avoiding the additives and manipulation that can harm the natural qualities of the grapes.

Michele personally and painstakingly supervises every step of the wine production, a vinification process that is sensitive, careful, and deeply respectful of the natural qualities of the grapes, which vary every year.
