Villa le Prata
After Villa le Prata was first a hunting lodge and then the home of the Bishop of Montalcino, it was then bought by the Losappio family who planted their first vineyard at 500 meters above sea level and started producing wine. To this day it is still a family run business, it now has been passed to their daughter Benedetta who manages the winery with the help of the whole family. In 1997 a further two vineyards of Brunello were planted, one hectare below Castelnuovo Dell'Abate and another hectare below the Castello della Velona. Currently they produce Brunello di Montalcino, Rosso di Montalcino and a selection of Brunello di Montalcino called "Massimo", for a total of 18.000 bottles.
