WINE TRAVEL: PETRA

The last winery of the trip our Wine Educator Vittoria had this August was Petra. Founded in 1997, the Petra estate lies close to the ancient village of Suvereto, Tuscany. Their vineyards are planted on the hills of Val di Corina, therefore Petra has the soul of Tuscan Maremma and the spirit of ancient times.

This modern and stunning property stands out as a top Tuscan wine producer, expressing the true quality of the terroir through the use of organic viticulture. Family-run by Vittorio Moretti and his daughter, Francesca, the state-of-the-art winery was designed by famed Swiss architect, Mario Botta.

The estate offers a wide range of elegant, yet powerful wines, including a fine Tuscan red made from 100% Syrah called Petra and a mighty Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot blend – Hebo.
