100% Vernaccia. The San Quirico winery takes its name from the nearby commune of San Quirico d'Orcia, located in the province of Siena, one of the Tuscany region's most beautiful areas. It is owned by Andrea Vecchione who replanted the original 27 acres of vineyards more than 20 years ago. His winery is small but efficient and equipped to produce state-of-the-art wines. In 2004, San Quirico obtained USDA NOP (National Organic Program) certification for their organic products and the 2005 vintage was the first to be labeled as such.
