The history of the farm dates back to 1700, when it was built by the aristocratic Peruzzi family, originally from Florence. In 1800, it came under the ownership of the Strozzi Sacrati marquis from Mantua and, finally, in 1978, it was conquered by the Lottero brothers from Genoa, who had always loved Tuscany. The farm is located in the lovely Chianti Rufina production area, characterised by gentle hills covered in olive groves and vineyards. Before starting, there will be an introduction to truffles and the activity with the hunter and his dog.

Mother of two wonderful daughters and wife of Dimitri, I chose life in the Tuscan hills because I love nature. We started in 1999 with a farmstead which, over time, we transformed into an organic farm. We currently own 110 hectares complete with vineyards, olive groves, woods and accommodation facilities that respect the environment. You can always find me here, because I live on the farm, and I am always available to explain everything I can about the organic world and the world of living well.
