The winery staff will be pleased to welcome you in the professional tasting room where you can sit and taste the local produce whenever you want.
ORGANIC FARM CESANI WINE TASTING IN SAN GIMIGNANO
Guido and Annunziata Cesani bought the estate in 1949 with their savings, and moved in this scenic corner of Tuscany, a short distance to San Gimignano.
In the Fifties they started subsistence farming activities. Later on their son Vincenzo decided to specialize and focused on the production of wine and oil produced according to organic methods. He achieved excellent results, deserving to be mentioned for the best quality standards of the area.
Today the farming activities are carried on by his daughters, Letizia and Marialuisa, who continue the family tradition with passion and competence.
The feminine energy is the strong point of this small, but dynamic concern. The farm covers 25 hectares of cultivated fields shared among vineyards and olive groves, which produce high-quality products combining family experience and tradition with modern technologies. All estate grown grapes are processed in the modern and technological estate cellar.
Our main goal in the pursuit of quality is to conciliate economic sustainability with reduced environmental impacts.
VINEYARDS AND OLIVE GROVES
The vineyards, that have been recently replanted, mainly consist of autochthonous vines to produce important local wines from organic grapes, such as Vernaccia di San Gimignano, Sangiovese, Colorino, Ciliegiolo, Canaiolo, Malvasia, Trebbiano. The olive trees that cover our hills are shared among the typical local varieties: Correggiolo, Leccino and Moraiolo. Our organically grown olives are processed locally in a small organic-certified mill with high quality standard.
WINE CELLAR AND GUIDED WINE TASTING
The modern and efficient wine cellar, that has been enhanced step by step, is a perfect combination of tradition and innovation. It is divided in two different areas for white wine and for red wine making, and boasts a fascinating barrels and barriques stockroom, a bottling room, and a storage for refinement in bottle and finished product. Next to the cellar there is a lovely and professional tasting room, and direct sale of the estate products.
The winery staff will be pleased to welcome you in the professional tasting room where you can sit and taste the local produce whenever you want. They will introduce you to the estate products with competence and passion, and give you the opportunity to listen to the history, the producing process, and the organoleptic features of all the products offered by the Cesani Family. Those who want to deepen their knowledge on the intriguing world of wine may join mini wine tasting courses to learn more about wine making and wine tasting techniques for the most renewed DOCG wines in Tuscany. Courses are given on request, farming activities permitting.
