  • Description

    Description

    In the hills of the Tuscany Country side we have an organic wine farm in which we have our house too. We have 40 hectare of lands with 6 hectare of vineyards. We make our wines in our cellar. Some olive threes , a small garden and a kitchen-garden. The family is Giovan Battista ('68) , Ilaria ('76) , Antonio ('03), Federico ('08). Giovan Battista takes care of the farm helped by some workers, while Ilaria works in an insurance company (she is a very good chef). Antonio and Federico, their sons, go at school, play music and soccer and are very friendship with the volounteers: it's important that they practice their english with new people coming from all around the world.
