The Family

First Raffaello, then Carlo and Giovannella, today Nicolò and Federica, tomorrow Allegra, Olivia and Tito.

Four generations united in Volpaia’s dream.

Raffaello, first of all, saw the wonder of Volpaia. Here he invited his friends to large dinners that culminated in the ritual of the porchetta banquet at San Lorenzo, the patron saint of Volpaia.

Carlo and Giovannella have dedicated their lives to bringing Volpaia back to being a village intimately involved in the production of wine, oil and vinegar. Charles, a navigator and dreamer, always wandered around the town with a tape measure in his pocket, a cypress in one hand and a rose in the other. Giovannella, active and chaotic, is the mother of all the inhabitants of Volpaia and, as such, authorized to beat anyone who comes across them. She is the soul of Volpaia!

Today Federica and Nicolò collect a precious legacy made up of timeless values, land and dreams. Federica, restorer, gallery owner, travels all over the world to promote Volpaia’s values, possibly where you can also ski. Nicolò is at the service of technology that applies to all his passions, first of all communication and agriculture. But the truth is that Nicolò is at the service of his children Allegra, Olivia and Tito.


Our garden.
Our land.
Our love.

Our latest project is a garden of 1100 m2 with all the first fruits or rather the late ones since we are at 600 m and when the others start not to produce anymore we have the most beautiful fruits.

We all fell in love with this piece of land and at the end of the work we find ourselves collecting, chard, strawberries, courgettes, aubergines….

The garden enjoys one of the most beautiful views that Volpaia offers us, so we decided to be able to taste the sunset in the garden.


Our values.

In September 2000 we began to fill in the forms for the conversion to Organic, in fact it was above all a bureaucratic fact: Organic is a philosophy and always in Volpaia, well before the world started talking about Organic, we treated the our vineyards and our fields in a natural way: no pesticides, no synthetic chemistry, natural fertilizers.

 Organic leads you to check vines very closely and, as in medicine, it is better to be safe than sorry.We monitor the vines daily but our microclimate, altitude and terroir help us to fight diseases biologically.
