Full description
Podere la Marronaia is a small family-run farm in San Gimignano dedicated to the cultivation of grapes and olives with the production of organic wines and extra virgin olive oils. The story will begin in the year 2000 when Silvia and Luigi Dei, together with their young children Pietro and Corrado, bought a property called Podere la Marronaia to make of it their home and follow the dream of a new life. The old vineyards and olive yards were immediately converted into the organic method of cultivation, while a long restoring of the house began. Now the whole family works in the farm business. Pietro and Corrado grew up following the dream to continue the family tradition. In the year 2000, the production was converted into the organic ethos of cultivation and recently in 2016, following the idea of a more sustainable agriculture and the respect of the environment, the fields have been converted into biodynamic agriculture. The cellar and the tasting venue are situated within walking distance from the town center of San Gimignano, surrounded by a beautiful countryside with a view of the towers and the Vernaccia vineyards. Different options will be to introduced to guests of the Tuscan farming world and local traditions. The aim is not to offer just a wine tasting, a lunch or a visit but to introduce guests to a full immersion personalized experience and share soul and passion for the land and products.
