Wines of character and elegance born from the love of Bolgheri and its culture.

Batzella Winery

Winery and its wines of character and elegance born from the love of Bolgheri and its culture.
Located in Bolgheri, on central coast Tuscany, the Batzella winery estate was founded in 2000 by Khanh Nguyen and Franco Batzella. The commitment of this husband-wife team is to make elegant and genuine wines, with a personality that expresses the best of their terroir. The Bolgheri area is enchanting, surrounded by soft rolling hills and by the Tyrrhenian sea. Its soils and micro climate are perfect for the Cabernet varietals, by now considered local to Bolgheri, to reach full maturation, resulting in wines that can be distinctively elegant. In this land, the Batzellas are pursuing their passion: to find that elusive harmony between elegance and power for their wines.
Khanh & Franco Batzella


“To raise vines is like to raise children: the most difficult part is not to hurry and not to impose – we must understand them and find ways to get the best out of them.”
Khanh Nguyen
The Batzella Winery is located in the heart of the Bolgheri DOC.
All vines are from France, we planted 5 different Cabernet Sauvignon clones for best blend of aroma and complexity.

Wines & Grappe

“In Bolgheri between the hills and the sea, the Cabernets in particular produce wines with a typical Mediterranean expression while offering an elegance which recalls their cousins in the North.”

The winery design is simple and functional, and the buildings are well insulated to enable efficient use of energy resources.
The Cabernet in the Bolgheri territory can give great wines with distinct personalities that reflect the soil and microclima where they are grown.  Indeed far from being of standard varietal and international style, these Bolgheri Cabernet wines, when produced with care, can offer elegance and structure that are very original, with unmistakable Mediterranean expressions that identify them from their Atlantic cousins from the Bordeaux region.

Our wines are elegant terroir driven wines, much appreciated by wine critics (such as Robert Parker, Antonio Galloni, Wine Spectator, Decanter, Veronelli, etc.) and from wine lovers world wide (ref. Vivino, Wine-Searcher). 
5 red wines: Tâm Bolgheri Superiore DOC, Peàn Bolgheri Rosso DOC, Digià Bolgheri Rosso DOC, Vox Loci Syrah IGT Toscana, Vox Loci Cabernet Franc IGT Toscana. 2 white wines: Mezzodì Bolgheri Bianco DOC, Vox Loci Viognier Toscana IGT. 1 rosé wine: PinkSy Bolgheri Rosato DOC. 2 Grappa: Grappa di Mezzodì, Grappa Riserva di Tâm.
