The farm

Azienda Vinicola Falzari

Located in Vinci, on the slopes of Montalbano, the farm “il Giardino”, has produced wine and oil since the beginning of the 1950’s. It stretches for 15.15 ha and is nestled in the hills at around 60 metres (a.s.l.), a fertile land planted with vines, olives and a small orchard.

The farm has 4 ha of south/south -west facing vineyards.   2.84 ha were planted fairly recently (2003) with Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapevines; the rest were planted back in 1972, mainly with Trebbiano, but also a few Sangiovese vines.
