What to expect

What is biodynamic wine? If the world of biodynamic wine making fascinates you, you cannot miss the opportunity to visit a real biodynamic farm with an adjoining winery in Tuscany.

We will start our visit in the biodynamic vineyard. We will show you the different varieties of the Tuscan wine-growing tradition and explain the biodynamic method we practice in the farm.

Our passion is indeed biodynamic wine. Farming according to the biodynamic method means not only excluding the use of chemical and synthetic fertilisers. It also means regenerating the soil and the plants through biological activators that help them find their nourishment in the soil itself.

In the wine cellar, you will learn about the stages of winemaking for biodynamic wines. In particular, you will learn that we ripen more balanced and chemical-free grapes. We have eliminated wine-making aids such as enzymes, tannins and selected yeasts. We use small 10 hectolitre containers for biodynamic wine fermentations.

We will taste the biodynamic wines of the estate, paired with a light lunch.


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.
