THE WINERY

Quality, authenticity, biodiversity

The "Tenuta di Ghizzano" (Ghizzano Estate) is one of the oldest farms in the area and also one of the most innovative.

Completely ORGANIC and BIODYNAMIC, today it is composed of about 280 hectares, 18 of which dedicated to vines, 15 to olives, 100 to cereals and the remaining 150 to woods and poplar groves. (View full map - PDF)

Ghizzano is a small hilltop village, situated at about 200m above sea level in an area referred to as “TERRE DI PISA” (PISA LANDS) not far from the Tuscan coast, 40 km from Livorno and 40 km to south of Pisa.

The landscape is gentle and the climate is mild, thanks to the sea breeze, and without extreme temperatures or great risk of springtime frosts.

This soil is one of the most representative of the varied and complex pedological landscape of the Terre of Pisa: it is formed by marine sediments of the geological age called "Astiana" represented by more or less calcareous clay sands, where it is easy find shells fossils.

Our production philosophy

Our aim is offer to the market a high quality Products which do reflect the style, the elegance and rich fragrances of the rolling hills surrounding us, with respect for each expression the Wine, the Oil and Fruits can give to this land.

In full respect of our history and traditions, in 2003 we started our journey towards ‘natural’ organic farming, eliminating all use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and chemical fertilizers. We feed the land with green-manure seeds and other seeds which help to fix nitrogen in the soil (for example oats).

Our whole Farm, has been officially certified ORGANIC by “SUOLO e SALUTE” since 2008, not just the vines but also the olive groves and cereal crops.

In 2006, we moved into biodynamic agriculture stimulating humus production with the field preparations 500 applied 3 or 4 times a year (in autumn and spring) and 501 (before and after flowering and whenever necessary).

Our whole Farm, has been officially certified BIODYNAMIC by “DEMETER” since 2018.

Together with our collaborators , Michele Franci and Dr. Roberto Righi, we have been on courses on Biodynamic Farming, becoming members of the Biodynamic Farming association “AGRICOLTURA BIODINAMICA”.

"La Verde Armonia"

The Garden of Acquaintance

The Venerosi Pesciolini garden is in itself a theatre of memories.

In the summer, the garden comes to life playing host to the festival ‘La Verde Armonia’, or ‘Green Harmony’. The festival organizes evenings which bring together art, food and wine. The garden is a typical Italian formal garden with enchanting geometric characteristics and perfect symmetry. It lies at the foot of the main villa, facing south and on a slight slope and reflects the beauty of the late renaissance style.
