  • Descripción


    I run, a 20 hectares organic and biodynamic winery located in the hills of Chianti Classico, 15 km south of Florence. Sustainable farming is my goal. I grow grapes and bottle wine, that is my work. I live with Greta, a medium size schnauzer, on one of the 2 vineyards that I own and manage. Some of my sons spend time with me on a regular base. It is a large house, hosts will have their own room and the use of one bathroom.
    The goal is to work as a team for a clean agriculture that can bring our grapes to express the true nature of our land. The wine is fermented with indigenous yeast, in total respect of the "terroir" of origin. We also need to take care of the garden, the vegetable garden, the house and have various appliances maintenance tasks to accomplish. Depending on the time of the year our guests will be required to help with house repairs, work in the vegetable garden, in the winery or in the vineyard. Meals will not always be shared, but this will be flexibly coordinated depending on work commitments, group size and individual preferences.

    I own a biodynamic vineyard. Guests will learn about working in a winery, bottling, taking care of a vineyard, more in general farming and gardening and also house repairs or maintenance when needed. But also, baking bread, making fresh pasta, fermenting kefir, kombucha and vegetables.
    As for myself, I grew up in North Africa where my family, (my father was Italian, my mother was Russian), had vineyards (Tunisia) and olive trees (Libia). I graduated in Economics in Florence then moved to Boston where I took a degree in musical composition at Berklee college of music. I then lived in NYC for 10 years being a musician and occasionally a wine sales rep. In 1999 I moved back to Tuscany where I started winemaking established a first brand and opened many international markets for my wine. I recently started a second wine brand. I am fluent in Italian, French, English and Spanish (this last one better understood than spoken).

    Tuscany offers many levels of discovery from landscape marvels to cultural and historical curiosity. Florence is a city of art, 40 mn away (by bus) from the farm. Siena is 50mn away, Lucca an hour. Transportation to town by bus is ok.
