OUR HISTORY

Vinegrowers in Vinci since 1873. The value of tradition and a passion carried on for four generations.

Our farm today covers a total area of 8 hectares of which about 7 are cultivated with vineyards and 1 with olive groves and is made up of two farm buildings: one in Apparita, where there is also the farmhouse and the other in Toiano, a few kilometers away.

The property in Apparita has been handed down to us by my mother's family (the Pasqualetti), while the one in Toiano by my father's family (the Zipoli).

The agricultural activity was started in Apparita in 1873, when Giovanni and Maria Pasqualetti, my great-grandparents, settled there working as laborers in various farms.

In Toiano, at the end of the 19th century it was Silvio and Rosa, my great-grandparents on the paternal side, to start the agricultural activity, dealing with the production of wine, oil and cereals.

In Apparita, in the 1950s my grandparents Dino Pasqualetti and Vania Ferradini decided to cease the production of cereals and convert all agricultural land to the viticulture and olive growing. They are the ones who start the retail sale and market the wine in numerous restaurants and shops.

This choice was also made in Toiano: my grandparents Duilio Zipoli and Primetta Gabbrielli started the company reorganization by ceasing the production of cereals and concentrating agricultural activities only to viticulture and olive growing. It is then with my father Italo Zipoli that in the 60s in Toiano a large part of the vineyards are enlarged and restructured and the marketing of both bulk and bottled wine is developed.

in 1984 we started accomodation in the farm

In Apparita the farmhouse was renovated in 1984, where my mother Elda Pasqualetti started the agritourism activity offering hospitality in the rooms with private bathroom.
