About us

Mario Incisa was the first one to produce a Bordeaux-style wine on Italian soil, recognizing clear similarities between part of the Bolgheri’s graveled land and the Graves in Bordeaux. Sassicaia is actually a Tuscan translation of the word “stony” or “graveled”. It was during the fifties that Mario Incisa decided to plant cabernet on the San Guido Estate and in 1968 he obtained the first vintage to be released in the market; before that all the production was just for family’s use. Thanks to Mario’s foresight, it was an instant success! Nicolò Incisa, son of Mario, is currently guiding the Estate; thanks to him the wine business has been developed even further, with the planting of new vines and the production of two more wines, Guidalberto and Le Difese, as well as through a major expansion in global markets.
