Our winery, Santa Lucia, is a family business set in the heart of the Park of Maremma, a natural park commonly referred to as “Parco dell’Uccellina”, last great wilderness of Tuscany. An unspoilt place of southern Tuscany, at close range from the wonderful sea of Talamone and set among the enchanting vineyards of the Morellino di Scansano.
We produce high quality wines for many generations, as a family-owned Winery and Vineyards; Our focus is hand crafting wines from our 40Ha property located in Maremma Tuscana. Our Sangiovese, Vermentino, Ansonica, Alicante, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petitot Verdot, Viognier and Ciliegiolo grapes sourced from our vineyards. The history of winemaking in our family dates to 1898, when the great grandfather (Giuseppe) began working in the vineyards in the Monte Argentario, a small Italian village on the shores of the Tyrrhenian Sea.
The declared founder was Luciano, the father of the currently owners,the brothers Lorenzo and Luca. While his grandmother Lucia all along supported him tending the vineyards Luciano, began making wine for family and friends. Named for the great grandmother Lucia, Luciano assumed control of our family business in 1980 – these were the humble beginnings of the Scotto family wine history and he dedicated the name of the company at Lucia “Santa Lucia”, because she supported him hardly.
Since 1980 step by step the winery has grown and has continued to grow thanks to the passion and love for wine and Maremma transmitted by Luciano to his 2 sons, Lorenzo the winemaker and Luca the marketing and sales director. The most widely planted varieties in the Santa Lucia appellation are Sangiovese, Vermentino, Ansonica, Alicante, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Viognier and Ciliegiolo.
