The medieval town of San Gimingnano is not only famous for its beauty and uniqueness, but also for the high quality terroire, from which some of Italy’s best wines are produced. The white ‘ Vernaccia’ wine was the first wine in Italy to receive the DOCG accolade in 1966. The experts say that the area is able to produce such fine wines due to the sandy clay soil which has built up into layers over the years, combined with the gradients of the hillsides and valleys, the vines are able to lay deep roots whilst still benefiting from excellent drainage. There are 7 hectares of vineyards in total.
The estate also produces a very good Extra Virgin Olive Oil, from which the olives are harvested by hand from the 3.3 hectare of Olive Groves.
