We think we do not exaggerate by saying that we have always been in Tuscany.. In fact, from a study conducted at the Church archives we are present in the Chianti area near Florence (an area of few square kilometers) since 1600. In all documents we are always found as farmers, a generation has never ever done a different activity
The research conducted by us did not want to find noble roots, in fact to be origin from the country is a source of pride for us, and we are very happy to come from the earth. Then the roots that bind us in this area are well anchored in central Italy, in the heart of Tuscany and precisely in a village of 250 inhabitants (including houses) where we reside today named Lucignano, which is 2 kilometers from the place of our storage place at San Pancrazio, another village of a few people not far from where we cultivate the land.
Why do not we move in a logistically more convenient place?
Because true quality doesn't come out only from rules to follow but is the result of the interaction of many components. The quality of life we have in this fabulous corner of Tuscany interacts with the quality of our work and therefore the quality of our rpoducts and relationship with our customers.
Here, it feels like once, we know each other and human relation and working conditions are still based more on trust and mutual respect than contracts with penalties and clauses. If you want to visit us in San Quirico in Collina, you will realize that good things come in beautiful and good places, places where you speak about the weather with the newsagent every morning, where you speak about the work in the fields with the old man at the bar during the coffee break and where you offer a drink to your postman that pass by at noon.
Come and visit us, we can work better knowing eachother!
Our area is visited by many tourist, the advice I want to give you is to visit us very camly and not with the rush typical of the modern business. Take a break for a few days to be spent on a farm (just call us a day before and we will suggest you few friends who have room or appartments).
