1959 gives birth to a typical wine farm in the San Gimignano area. In fact, it was precisely in that year that Giovanni, attracted by the wonders of Tuscany, left behind his past as a sharecropper in the Adriatic fields, to buy a small family wine farm and its lands devoted to the vine cultivation near the medieval village.

The motionless rhythms of the following years saw a slow transformation of this wine company. From agricultural and vines breeding activities linked exclusively to subsistence, not without difficulty, the family approaches the first artisan wine production of Vernaccia di san Gimignano and Sangiovese, enhancing the vocation for the white wines of the territory.

Having acknowledged the potential of the area and the quality of the product, this company, now a family winery thanks to the passion poured by Franco, Giovanni's son, decided to put the first supply of Chianti wines up for sale. By now over half of the farm is dedicated to the vineyard activity. It's the early 80s and the international market is still evolving and full of excellent chances in the wine business.

Except for a piece of land under the walls of San Gimignano, the rows of vines parade northwards away from the village, towards the adjacent hills. The vineyards’ exposure to the east guarantees light and warmth.

The medium density substrate varies continuously and guarantees different aromas to the grapes crops.

The area is in fact a precious mixture of marine and volcanic residues with alternating tuff, limestone, sand and clay and with different temperatures and humidity even a few hundred meters away from each other.

Beside the white, rosé and sparkling vernaccia di San Gimignano a unique tasting of "grappa" (the Italian typical brandy distilled from marc after wine making), a will be offered
