The winery is named after the Avignonesi family, the founders of the original
estate. Constant research and development aimed at expressing the true
character of the Montepulciano terroir has, over time, earned the winery
a well-deserved place among the flagship producers of Tuscany. In 2009,
Avignonesi was acquired by Virginie Saverys who has since introduced
organic farming methods to craft distinct, genuine wines with an even
stronger character, and has acquired additional vineyards and a state-ofthe-
art winemaking facility in the Montepulciano appellation.
