The Ghizzano Estate
The Tenuta di Ghizzano is one of the oldest farms in the area and also one of the most innovative. Today there is about 350 hectares of which 20 with vineyards, 20 with olive groves, 150 hectares with cereal crops and 150 between woods and poplar groves.
Products are offered to the market, contained in quantities, but of the highest quality, respecting the expressions that wine and oil can give in this area, without betraying the style, elegance and richness of the sweet hills scents. The owners have embarked on a path of viticulture and natural agriculture, to produce perhaps very little, but very well ...
From the 2003 a process of conversion to organic farming began and from the 2008 the Estate obtained certification from the Soil and Health organization.
The Veronesi Pesciolini family and the Borgo di Ghizzano
The family, according to the "Repetti" arrived in Ghizzano, towards the end of the XIV century. The cellar and the mill are located right around the tower built by the Venerosi ancestors in the 1370. Vine and olive trees, the production of wine and oil, were immediately the heart of the family's business in the various estates that make up today's company. Ghizzano is a small hillside village, about 200 meters high, located on the Tuscan coast, at 40 km from Livorno and 40 km south of Pisa, in the area known as the Pisan Hills, south-east of Pisa. The landscape is soft and the climate is mild because it is mitigated by the sea airs, without great extremes of temperature and without great risks of spring frosts. The terrain is a very interesting composite.
Guests can stay in four farmhouses immersed in the green hills of Pisa. An ideal place to better enjoy a holiday surrounded by the beauty of the landscape and excellent local products. The agriturismo is located along the wine route, near the village of Ghizzano.
