Our winery and trail riding stable is located in the hills of Chiana Valley near the city of Cortona. The vineyard of half a hectare and an olive grove of one hectare is all managed by the owner. All farm work is carried out with care and all by hand. It is very important for us to renounce the use of chemicals. The vegetation, the variety of trees and shrubs support the natural cycle and the protection of plants. Pruning of trees, the thinning of the vines, the harvest of grapes and olives is done without mechanical assistance. Picked by hand the fruits arrive without damage of processing.
Our horses are experienced trail horses and we offer our guests different riding programs and trails rides.
Michaela, originally from Germany, trail riding guide and horseman trainer.
My partner Vasco, who was born here in Tuscany and lived here ever since, is the master of the vineyard and vegetable garden and a great cook.
And of course-our horses, dogs, cats and chicken.
