Elisabetta Geppetti is a woman of exceptional energy, determination and vision. She was only 20 years old when, in 1985 she first took the reins at her family’s tiny 2 hectare property near Pereta in the Scansano zone.

It was a time when Tuscan wines were at a low ebb, those of Scansano almost nonexistent and women winemakers were practically unheard of. As a student, Elisabetta believed that this unique region held the key to producing wines with fabulous potential. Her understanding of the land and her love of wine combined with her skill and tenacity are responsible for Le Pupille, a winery that has become asynonym for quality and a pioneer of excellence.

Elisabetta is truly an undisputed star of the Italian wine scene having spent 3 decades tirelessly promoting her beloved Morellino di Scansano region and outstanding estate, whilst also finding the time to raise 5 children. A power house of talent and one of Tuscany’s wine royalty, one cannot fail to be enchanted by her superb wines
