“I continue to be impressed with the beautiful wines of Bibi Graetz. These are highly singular, expressive wines that merit serious consideration.”
– Antonio Galloni
Described by many as one of the most creative winemakers in all of Italy, Bibi Graetz is revolutionizing the wines of Tuscany. With no formal training and only a tiny vineyard on his parent’s property near Florence he still managed to form one of his country’s supreme cult wineries. Although Bibi doesn’t own a traditional estate, he has been able to search for preferential old vines throughout Tuscany, specifically Isola di Giglio, which is the foundation for his opulent yet sophisticated wines. He focuses on indigenous grape varieties that many other producers near him refuse to use such as Canaiolo, Colorino, Soffocone di Vinicigliata, and many more. Over time, Bibi Graetz has acquired 75 acres of vines throughout 20 small, organically farmed vineyard plots, and continues to revolutionize the way that Italian wine is thought of.
