wine producer

Tenuta Buon Tempo

Region: Toscana


A fairly new player on the scene, the estate was purchased in 2012 by Per and Janet, who between them have many years of experience in the wine industry. Per was a producer in France, and Janet worked in the international wine trade scene for many years. They named the property ‘Tenuta Buon Tempo’ as an ode to the lush weather and serenity felt when they acquired the property. 
However, the history of the estate dates back to 1941 which, back then called ‘Podere Oliveto’, was owned by a certain Rossini Martinelli. The farm was part of the widely used sharecropping system and was devoted almost exclusively to the production of olives in true Tuscan style. The estate embarked in grape-growing in 1994 with the planting of its first vineyard.
Per and Janet celebrated the release of their first Brunello, labelled as Tenuta Buon Tempo, in 2015 (the 2010 vintage). In 2021, they were certified organic.


Tenuta Buon Tempo are located in the very far south of Montalcino. The property extends itself over 28 hectares, of which 14 are under vine. 12 hectares in Castelnuovo dell’Abate, ranging from 180 to 350 meters above sea level, with a southeast exposition, and 2 hectares in Montosoli, at 300m above sea level facing north. The plot in Montosoli was acquired in 2019 with the aim of producing a cru wine to add to their range. The only variety grown is Sangiovese.
