About Tenuta di Valgiano

Tuscany, Italy

Our 40Ha farm includes 16Ha of vines as well as an olive grove, orchard, vegetable garden, wheat fields and animals (bees, pigs, chicken, guinea fowl and rabbits). All are cared for biodynamically (Demeter Certification 2002) using Alex Podolinsky’s method, which is so practical and pragmatic that nature has entered Valgiano without much struggling.
