What to expect

Visit Tenuta delle Ripalte, one of the 14 design wineries of the Toscana Wine Architecture circuit, and enjoy total immersion in the flavors and aromas of the typical grape variety of the Island of Elba, so loved by Napoleon: Aleatico and its variants.

Pair Brut Spumante Rosato (rosé sparkling wine), Bianco delle Ripalte (still white wine) and the famous Aleatico Passito dell’Elba (sweet wine) with typical Tuscan appetizers, including local cold cuts and aged cheeses, and immerse yourself in the magical atmosphere of a private natural oasis in the Tuscan Archipelago.

Take a walk among the vineyard rows on the eastern promontory of Elba while listening to the history of winemaking on the island. Your expert guide will fascinate you with the legends of the estate that revolve around the beautiful 19th-century villa.

You will then visit the wine cellar designed by architect Tobia Scarpa, with a breathtaking view of the Tyrrhenian Sea, and taste some Aleatico wines with an explanation of the winemaking and drying process of the grapes.
