The breathtakingly beautiful Tenuta Di Valgiano is located in the North of Tuscany, 300 meters above sea level in the Colline Lucchesi appellation overlooking the city of Lucca. It has been a wine estate since the 16th century, and some of the buildings are almost as old as the estate. The farm covers 40 hectares, 16 of which are vineyards, and another 13 are home to honeybees and olive trees, which produce outstanding olive oil and honey. Laura, Moreno and Saverio produced their first vintage in 1993. Following the teachings of Australian biodynamic pioneer Alex Podolinsky, the estate was certified organic in 1996 and biodynamic in 2002. They practice low intervention winemaking and biodynamic horn manure preparation known as "500" to keep the vines healthy. Grapes are sorted by hand before being crushed first by foot. The wines are bottled unfiltered.

The perfectly exposed vineyards (250 meters) between San Pietro a Marcigliano and Sant'Andrea in Caprile, resting on the imposing side of the Pizzorne boulder (900 meters) and a few kilometres from the Tyrrhenian coast with Alberese limestone marl soils. Organic production.Grapeds are de-stemmed before a gentle foot-stomping in small vats. This is then aged in cement and partly in used oak barrels.
