Schneider family

In 1996, François Schneider fell under the charm of this almost millennial estate, abandoned for several decades in the heart of a wild nature particularly preserved. With his wife Clotilde, they decide to give it back to life. The restructuring of Tenuta Novella lasted more than 10 years and today its lands offer products of exception.

Together with their children, Aurélia and Jean-Olivier, they wish to promote all the products of the estate and to promote a traditional, organic agriculture that fully respects the territory and the environment.

Simone Zemella

Operations managers/Oenologist, originally from Pitigliano (Grosseto), son of a farmer, he started his studies in Italy before staying five years in France (Bordeaux) to become enologist. He worked in prestigious vineyards, especially in the United States (California, Napa Valley), New Zealand (Central Otago), as well as the Bordeaux region. He joined Tenuta La Novella to come nearer to his native region.

Elodie Tagliazucchi

Marketing and sales manager, originally from Corsica, she left her native island to study the international trade of Wines in Avignon before beginning her career in the south of France for a big wine producing firm from Bordeaux. Her challenge was to help a little structure specialized in organic wine to get recognized for the quality of its products; it’s already done thanks to Tenuta La Novella’s location in the heart of the Tuscan Chianti’s region.
