It is believed that our family settled in Ghizzano towards the end of the 14th century. The winery and oli mill are both situated right next to the tower built in 1370 by our Venerosi Pesciolini ancestors.
Grapes and Olives, and the production of wine and oil, have been at the heart of our family’s activities and have encompassed the whole of the Estate as it is today. Ghizzano is a small hilltop village, about 200m above sea level, not far from the Tuscan coast, at 40 km from Livorno and 40 km south of Pisa, in an area referred to as the ’Colline Pisane’ (Pisan Hills). The landscape is gentle and the climate mild, thanks to the sea breeze, and without extreme temperatures or great risk of springtime frosts. The land has an interesting makeup.
The “Tenuta di Ghizzano” (Ghizzano Estate) is one of the oldest farms in the area and also one of the most innovative. Today it is made up of about 350 hectares of which 20 dedicated to vines, 20 to olives, 150 hectares of cereal and the remaining 150 is made up of woods and poplar groves.
In 2001 we started hospitatlity through our Agriturisimo. We have lovingly restored and furnished some of the farm houses on the Estate in full respect of their history and they now offer wonderful, quality accommodation–welcoming yet elegant. Four farm houses surrounded by green hills of Pisa along the wine road, near the burg of Ghizzano, once coveted castle to its strategic position: the hills and near the Francigena Way.
