Some information about the farm:
The San Gregorio farm is placed over the Chianti Colli Senesi hills around Chiusi, in the southern part of the province of Siena. These lands have been lavish with generous wines since immemorial time. In this luxuriant context, the passion for viticulture has been the secret of genuine wines of undeniable quality for generations.
The company covers about 120 hectares of which 19 has destined for vineyards and until the 1950s the Azienda San Gregorio made viticulture its vocation and from 1987 it began the marketing and development of the company brand producing Chianti Colli Senesi authentic and identifying the territory. The farm philosophy is based on the enhancement of the Tuscan culture, cultivating only vines that in these places have evolved and adapted over time. In addition to producing wine, San Gregorio is also a farmhouse and breeding farm in the Cinta Senese area.
Breeding of Cinta Senese
Since the early 2000s we have finalized this activity to the breeding of the Cinta Senese, delimiting large plots of wood and arable land with appropriate fences, providing the most suitable crops for the natural feeding of the pigs in the field.
Semi-wild breeding, which consists in letting the pigs free to graze in the fields and woods. The breeding currently consists of animals all selected and registered both in the consortium of the Cinta Senese PDO and in the I N Q for quality control plans.
