A day in the kitchen

In the kitchen with the lady of the house and owner of the estate, to discover the Tuscan culinary tradition: Tuscan cooking is simple and full of genuine flavours, lost or sometimes forgotten.

You will learn how to make dishes that are easy to prepare again at home.

A walk in the vineyard to learn about the grape varieties of the Tuscan wine tradition and to explain the methods of biodynamic farming that we practice in the winery. In the wine cellar, you will learn about the phases of biodynamic wine making.

We will end the experience at lunch or dinner tasting the dishes that we have cooked together, paired with our wines.


The Food Expert: the winery is located on the hills of San Miniato, an ancient medieval village in the heart of Tuscany in the Province of Pisa, along the route of the Via Francigena, land of wines and white truffles (the precious Tuber Magnatum). The estate, owned by our family since 2000, covers a single hill, 40 hectares of vineyards, olive groves and arable land. The vineyards are located about 100 metres above sea level and the grape varieties that we have been growing are typical of the Tuscan wine tradition, including the Sanforte, an almost disappeared native grape variety of which we have recovered the genetic heritage.

Our passion is biodynamics: doing agriculture following the methods of biodynamic farming means not only excluding the use of chemical and synthetic fertilisers, but also regenerating the soil and the plants through biological activators that help them find their nourishment in the soil itself.
