In 1991 Sandro, a company director, and his wife Clementina, a refined painter,
decided to move away from our homeland Sardinia and purchase a house in the countryside of Vinci.
The property that won them over in terms of position and beauty is a house with 15 acres of farmland,
vineyards, olive groves and orchards; neither of them had any experience in agriculture and had never
done this type of work before. The owners, however, wanted to sell the entire property; they still
went ahead and from here the story begins!
Clementina ran the farm with the help of Sandro at weekends, while their two sons
Sergio and Roberto continued with their education.
In ’99 Roberto, who dreamt of being a skipper and farmer, decided to abandon the engineering
faculty at university and dedicated himself, with the help of his now retired father,
and under the artistic supervision of his mother,
to the renovation of the former hayloft on the estate to create an ‘agriturismo’, or rural country guest house.
In 2000 Sergio, who had completed his studies to become a vet, had qualified and was practicing his profession,
decided to take a short period of reflection; he produced wine from his first grape harvest,
discovering the great passion which would lead him to change his job and lifestyle.
This all seems a long time ago.
My name is Sergio and I deal in everything connected with the wine production,
from the pruning of the vines to the sale of the bottled wines;
Roberto runs the technical innovation side of the business and the agriturismo;
Cristina, his wife takes care of the overall look of the apartments and runs the websites;
Clementina, having abandoned painting, crafts unique objects in macramé. Sandro keeps on building…
