What to expect

You will visit our biodynamic vineyard. We will tell you about the evolution towards biodynamic winemaking that we have adopted on the farm. You will discover, in fact, that initially our estate produced organic wines. Shortly afterwards, in accordance with the farm’s values of respect and protection of the environment, we decided to dedicate ourselves with passion to the production of biodynamic wines.

Our passion today is biodynamic wine-making. 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.

After a walk through the vineyards and a visit to the winery, we offer an engaging lesson on biodynamic wines. A tasting session to discover the colours and aromas of biodynamic wine.

Food and wine pairings, guided blind tastings with a FISAR or AIS sommelier, or introduction to biodynamic winemaking and its secrets with our oenologists – presence of the sommelier or oenologist depending on daily availability.

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.


Cancellation policy: all bookings for the lesson on biodynamic wines can be cancelled within 3 days from the start date of the experience. Read the Terms and Conditions.
