SUOLO E SALUTE
The Venerosi Pesciolini Family are a very old family dating back to the Carolingian period. The first signs of the Venerosi in the historical record are from 803 A.D. It is believed that our family settled in Ghizzano towards the end of the 14th century. The family’s country house is now a residential Villa and the heart of the company. The Villa has a beautiful, typical classic late renaissance style Italian garden. The "Tenuta di Ghizzano" (Ghizzano Estate) is one of the oldest farms in the area but also one of the most innovative. It is made up of 280 hectares of rolling hills, in one of the most stunning landscapes in the world, farmed completely ORGANICALLY and using BIODYNAMIC methods, with 18 hectares of vineyards, 15 of olives, 100 hectares of arable land and the remaining 150 of woodland and poplar groves where truffle hunters search for their perfumed golden treasures secretively.

VERMENTINO, TREBBIANO, MALVASIA BIANCA
Made from traditional Tuscan white grapes: Trebbiano, Vermentino and Malvasia Bianca. Vermentino grape is vinified traditionally pressing it and fermenting the juice at a low temperature with its indigenous yeasts along one month. Trebbiano e Malvasia grapes are left for few hours (from 7 to 12 hours), after refrigerating them, in the pressing machine with their skins and then left in a stainless steel tank to ferment with its yeast. When fermentation, of each different variety, has come to an end we rack the wine and blend it together. IL GHIZZANO BIANCO is a fresh and fruity wine, easy drinking, perferctly matching with summer dishes.
