Garden and farm

Vignamaggio extends over 400 hectares in the heart of the Chianti Classico area, within the Greve in Chianti municipality, 33 Km from Florence and 35 Km from Siena.

The introduction of farm diversification, like the addition of orchards and small scale organic animal rearing, is an integral part of Vignamaggio’s vision. From the outset, the idea was to move beyond the olive grove/vineyard duo and adopt an avant-garde approach to Tuscan farm concept, always respecting and being guided by the rhythms and schedules of nature.

The vineyards and olive groves remain the heart of the farm and extend over 70 hectares and 5000 olive trees.

 

ORGANIC FARMING

In 2014 the farm’s conversion to organic agriculture began.

Environmental conservation, the health of our staff and that of our clients were the three main reasons that lead Vignamaggio in this direction.

Inherent in the implementation of this new holistic agricultural approach is respect for land, plants and people.

These various types of “prunus domestica” ripen at different times of the summer, some produce more fruit than others and they differ noticeably in flavour and colour. In June we […]

IN THE SHADE OF PETASITES
Posted on Friday August 07, 2020

Today we went out with Francesca, manager of the Vignamaggio gardens, to explore the coolest part of the estate, in search of the petasites or butterbur, a perennial plant of the Asteracaea family. It is easy to come across these enormous herbaceous plants alongside Greve’s tributaries. They can be spotted by their huge hat-like leaves […]
