The "Tenuta di Ghizzano" (Ghizzano Estate) is one of the oldest farms in the area but also one of the most innovative.
It is made up of 280 hectares of rolling hills, in one of the most stunning landscapes in the world, farmed completely ORGANICALLY and using BIODYNAMIC methods, with 18 hectares of vineyards, 15 of olives, 100 hectares of arable land and the remaining 150 of woodland and poplar groves where truffle hunters search for their perfumed golden treasures secretively.

Ghizzano is a small mediaeval hilltop village, situated at about 200m above sea level in an area referred to as “Terre Di Pisa” (The Pisan Countryside). The landscape is gentle, and the climate is mild, thanks to the sea breeze, without extreme temperatures or great risk of springtime frosts.
The soil is a very interesting composite of sand and clay, a good example of calcareous clay sands formed from marine sediments from the "Astiana" geological era, in which you can therefore find fossilized shells.
