FOLLOWING A CAREFUL RESTORATION THAT HAS PRESERVED ITS ORIGINAL CHARM, THE FORMER TOBACCO DRYING BUILDING HAS BECOME A WINERY WHERE TRADITION AND TECHNOLOGY MEET. FROM APRIL 2024 WILL BE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC FOR TOURS AND TASTINGS OF A SELECTION OF THE CASTELLANI FAMILY’S FINEST WINES.

Tenuta di santa Lucia

The estate is located about 100 meters above sea level, on soil rich in skeleton and fossil shells that reveals in places the meeting of the river and the sea (which is now about 25 kilometers to the west).

The vineyard is completely surrounded by the forest, into which it fits and at times is intertwined. This osmotic exchange with native Mediterranean scrub varieties allows for an interesting aromatic exchange and richer interaction between vineyard and local flora fauna.

TENUTA DI BURCHINO

It covers about 37 hectares in the territory of Terricciola, which has always been considered the production area of the best wines of the Pisan Hills. The estate has belonged to the Castellani Family for five generations.

The vineyards are almost all located on the hillsides with better exposure and represent a veritable collection of the area’s Cru. The soils are extraordinarily rich in skeleton on a mixture of sand and clay, a very ancient matrix that recalls the ancient marine origin of this area.

TENUTA DI MONTEFOSCOLI

Nestled in the hills of the municipality of Palaia, in the province of Pisa, and with more than 60 hectares dedicated to organic farming, it is chronologically the last of the estates acquired by the Castellani Family.

The old building used for ‘tobacco manufacturing drying has become an impressive winery equipped with the latest technology, following a careful restoration that has preserved its original charm.

From April 2024 it will be open to the public for guided tours and tastings of a selection of the Castellani Family’s finest wines.

TENUTA DI CAMPOMAGGIO

The estate covers more than 120 hectares in the municipality of Radda in Chianti, one of the most vocated areas of Chianti Classico. The vineyards are located between 280 and 480 meters above sea level, on the hills adjacent to the ancient village of Campomaggio. The unique conformation of Radda’s soils, the lower average temperature and large temperature swings in the summer period, favor a slower ripening of the grapes and an increase in the olfactory characteristics of the wines produced here, which are always endowed with great elegance.

Our estate is located near an 18th-century village nestled in the hills and offers tours and tastings that go beyond pre-packaged schemes and become true human and cultural experiences.

POGGIO AL CASONE

With 40 hectares of organically cultivated vineyards, the estate is an important reference point for various research projects aimed at preserving and integrating the human-plant-animal balance.

A prestigious resort stands within the estate. Vineyards surround the ancient villa and two cottages finely restored in Tuscan style.

Vineyards are located in the Chianti production area, about 20 kilometers from the Tuscan coast, on foothills soils on the right bank of the Arno River that enjoy special climatic conditions influenced by the proximity of the Tyrrhenian coast about 20 kilometers away.
