A tranquil oasis in Tuscany
Tenuta Santo Pietro’s 72-acre estate was part of a larger farm system laid out by Pope Pius II in the mid-1400s. Today it is a self-sufficient gentleman’s farm with nearly 15 acres each of vineyards and olive trees. You can wander amid the splendor of the land for hours. In autumn, join in an olive harvest or take part in a pressing. At any time of year, enjoy superior olive oil and wine produced from our land. Santo Pietro arranges wine and olive oil tastings for its guests and visitors.
Our property is home to over 1,100 olive trees of four indigenous varietals. The trees range in age from 25 years to well over 100 years. We pick all our olives by hand, using traditional methods which ensure that the fruit is at its best when we cold press it, the same day the olives are picked from the trees.
Our vineyards include almost 15 acres of old and more recent growth vines of Sangiovese as well as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Petit Verdot grapes. We produce approximately 2,000 cases of wine per year. We pride ourselves on the small production of the highest quality wine we can make.
