About Roberto Cipresso

Roberto Cipresso is an internationally acclaimed winemaker with 35 years of winemaking experience.  As a “flying winemaker,” Roberto works all over the world, although his home and his family are in Montalcino, in Tuscany.

Roberto’s lifetime of experience has captured the notice of many critics and fans alike. In 2006, the Italian Sommelier Association declared Roberto the “best Italian winemaker.” In 2009, ‘Wine & Spirits’ magazine declared Roberto’s winemaking project in Argentina the “best winery in the world”. In 2013, ‘Wine & Spirits’ similarly declared his Malbec the “best Malbec in the world.” Roberto has continued to collect acclaim, including recognition as a “Cult Oenologist” and frequent invitations to judge wine competitions.

Roberto’s impact on the winemaking world of Europe and South America is profound. He is a frequent guest on podcasts and radio programs in the Italian and Spanish speaking wine world. Roberto is the author of numerous books on the subject of wine, and a pioneer of the style of “heroic viticulture” in which vines are pushed to produce new and rare expressions of the grape by being cultivated in locations which challenge the vines. As an ambassador for the Italian organization CERVIM, which promotes heroic viticulture, he is the driving force behind groundbreaking wines around the world.
