Dr. Elke and Dr. Nikolaus Buchheim
Their love of wine made them pursue the dream of finding a suitable piece of land, where they could grow and make their own fine wines. Near the town of Scansano in southern Tuscany, the home of the internationally renowned Morellino di Scansano, they found their calling: here, in the hills of the Maremma, above the Mediterranean Sea they have built and developed their own vineyard since 1996. Through hard work, cooperation and the inspiration offered by renowned enologist Dr. Massimo Albanese, their love of wine could ripen even more and continuously creates new innovations in the sector of organic winemaking.
Since 2013 Roland serves as managing director of Poggio Nibbiale in Italy. He is responsible for accounting, marketing and operations. More importantly he supports Elke and Nikolaus with creating our unique wines.
His primary interest is to establish an exemplary organic agriculture on Poggio Nibbiale and the production of genuinely Tuscan wines that elegantly incarnate their origin.
