Azienda Agricola Losi

Overlooking the medieval town of Siena, on the Chianti hills, the Losi estate enjoys a privileged location thanks to a unique microclimate, excellent sunlight exposure, and soil perfectly balancing stone and clayey elements. The history of the Losi family dates back to 1870s, and it remains one of the most genuine and charming artisanal producers among the narrow circle of prestigious families forming the historic Chianti Classico Consortium, globally recognized for producing some of the finest wines and olive oils. In 1954, the Losi bought part of the grounds owned by the Chartusian monastery of Pontignano, and in the 60s they joined the Chianti Classico Consortium. Since then, Pietro and Paolo Losi have continued the family tradition by continuously improving the quality of their wines and olive oils with hard-work and investments over time. Today, Riccardo and Valeria, Pietro’s children, work alongside Pietro and Paolo to further develop their family business, knowing they will pass it to their children so that the Losi tradition can continue for future generations to come.
While investing in new technologies, the Losi remain farmers and artisanal producers at heart, who seek quality through hard-work, passion for excellence and the preservation of straightforward but essential family traditions of ancient origins.

Fattoria Bini

Fattoria Bini is located in the Chianti area, a few miles from Florence in the heart of Tuscany, a natural and historic environment. It has been passed from generation to generation, and today it is led by Elena and Francesca Bini Moriani, who continue, year after year, in their meticulous work of restoration and modernization. The historical site of the farm, today family residence, is the Villa Terraio, a five hundred years old villa, with a beautiful Italian style garden. The villa, located in the Florentine hills, is surrounded by the vineyards and olive groves of the Fattoria Bini and accompanied by Borgo San Giusto, hospitality venue also ideal for meetings, shows, and private receptions. The Villa Terraio is surrounded by a beautiful forest, consisting mainly of tall oak trees, where you can often see rare birds of prey flying undisturbed. In the mid-nineties, the Bini Family started a significant reforestation intervention. Since then, more than 15,000 trees (including walnuts, oaks, ash trees and cypresses) have been planted over 50 hectares, allowing the regeneration of the original rural environment. Today it is possible to see deer wandering in the woods. The origins and history of the Fattoria Bini are connected to the history of the Grand Dukedom of Tuscany. In the historical period from Pietro Leopoldo to Leopoldo II of Lorraine, 1765-1790, the Bini Family, originally from Livorno, began to focus on agriculture. Mariano, a wine merchant, moved to Empoli in 1789 to buy a small farm and adopt the latest cultivation techniques from Cosimo Ridolfi. The purchase of the Villa Terraio and surrounding farms date back to 1880. The Villa was the residence of the historic Florentine family De’Cerchi in the early sixteenth century.

Olivicola Degli Ernici

The Olivicola degli Ernici is located just south of Rome, in the High Ciociaria area, on the hills just below the ancient medieval village of Vico nel Lazio and surrounded by olive groves at the foot of the splendid scenery of the Ernici Mountains. The year-round cool and airy microclimate typical of this hill country allows olive trees to prosper undisturbed by the most common parasites and diseases. The olive groves, which extends between 450m and 750m of elevation above sea level, are cultivated according to traditional methods over terraced inclines with an orientation towards South or South-West to enjoy the best sunlight exposure.

Equipped with a modern milling plant of their own and a new milling facility which extends over 10,000 square feet, the Olivicola degli Ernici has full control over the entire production cycle and can produce one of the finest premium extra virgin olive oils. At the heart of the foundation of the Olivicola degli Ernici is also an ambitious project to recover nearby abandoned olive groves and get them back to prime condition. Combining a passion for the terroir with technology, highly-skilled operators, nutritionists and educators allow the Olivicola degli Ernici to offer an educational experience “From Terroir to Olive Oil to Health” to their visitors in addition to amazing olive oil. The Olivicola degli Ernici also offers a dive into ancient traditions, with a guided tour to the local Olive Oil Museum “Pietro Capriati”.
