Luminosità Winery – between Brazil, Italy, love and wine!
It’s even hard to start talking about this magical place, because it is, in fact, VERY special! Luminosità is located in the middle of the iconic hills of Casole d’Elsa, province of Siena, and covers approximately 150 hectares. With its privileged location, the grapes grown on the site are unique: fed by a soil composed of clay and limestone, at an altitude of 350 meters above sea level, another factor that influences the quality of the vineyards is, without a doubt, the temperature. Despite varying considerably between night and day, they are almost always constant and thus provide a perfect climate for perfect grapes! Also read: How to bring wines from Italy in your luggage?

Luminosità Winery: the history
But the great charm of this place is its history. The owner of Luminositá Winery is a Brazilian passionate about wines: Nick Salussolia. Nick is the son of Italian immigrants, and his parents arrived in Brazil at the beginning of the last century, coming from Piedmont and Bologna. Nick’s parents already had a great passion for the world of oenology and, thus, they brought to Tupiniquin lands an excellent know-how about the production of excellent wines.
Nick grew up in the midst of this passion and, at the beginning of this century, he was chosen to carry out land sales in Tuscany, located between San Gimignano and Volterra, but the love for wines, and for Italy, created a spark in the heart of the Brazilian! He simply fell in love with this universe and, already in Italy, understood that his destiny was to own a winery!
The winery lands
As not everything is flowers, the place chosen by him, to fulfill his dream, was far from perfect. Once there, Nick found land and rural houses (over 400 years old!) abandoned, and even though he knew he had an immense challenge on his hands: he went deep! He knew the job would be exhausting, but he took on the challenge: right at the entrance to the property, Nick had a glimpse of what it could all become. With the secular cypress trees typical of Tuscany, Nick was a visionary and knew that this could all turn out to be stunning! And so it was!
The revitalization of the Luminosità Winery
The process of revitalizing the property required time and dedication, taking years, but at the end of the battle, the result came: a splendid place, full of magic and beauty, ready to welcome other wine lovers. The three rural houses, today, are beautiful, comfortable and excellent lodging places; the vines are abundant and they are transformed into magnificent wines, and Nick remains in love with this universe of hospitality and oenology in a constant and passionate way!
Currently, together with his agronomist, his canteen, his faithful winemaker, his dedicated employees, and his wife, Nick, literally, gets his hands dirty, follows every step, and is personally dedicated to the production of one of the most delicious wines I’ve ever tasted in my life!
He was also responsible for the decoration of the agritourism and, it is not uncommon, that he receives guests personally, with that hospitality that only Brazilians have.
Knowing more about Luminosità Winery
With a lot of love and passion, Luminosità Winery is a Boutique Winery, that is, it produces between 18 and 20 thousand bottles a year, thus offering the sure guarantee that each bottle will have unquestionable quality.
