Azienda Agricola Cecilia is located on Isola d’Elba (Elba Island, belonging to the Tuscan Archipelago, in the Tyrrhenian Sea), partly famous as the location of Napoleon’s exile. Cecilia makes wines from grapes grown on the local soil. Winemaking began in 1990 with only 5 acres cultivated with vines and a modern cellar. In 2001, the vineyard had expanded to about 25 acres, with mostly replanted vines in order to meet the quality-oriented criteria established by the estate.
The winemaking and sales base is ‘La Casina’ vineyard in the La Pila district, and two kilometers further north is ‘I Marmi’, a completely restructured farmhouse with a panoramic view overlooking the vines. The third farmhouse, ‘I Marta’, recently renovated, will soon produce white grapes. Cecilia Estate lies on the Etruscan Coast Wine Route.
