Occupation Farm Estate owner
Location Castellina in Chianti, Siena, Italy
Introduction I live in the heart of the Chianti Classico Region of Tuscany, in Italy. I dedicate my time to running a farming estate producing Chianti Classico wine, Extravirgin Olive Oil, and raising the rare Cinta Senese pigs. We are among those that helped save this race from extinction. Today we are the largest breeder in the Siena area and we produce and age the traditional Tuscan products: prosciutto, salami, finocchiona - all certified by the Protected Denomination of Origin, Cinta Senese DOP. We hold tastings of our products during the week: you can book a visit by writing to tuscanray@gmail.com. If you enjoy the products, you can purchase them from our shop. They will be shipped "door to door" anywhere in the world. We have an international clientele, with American and European fans of our wines, oil and pork products. We are also Tour Operators with a travel agency in Castellina in Chianti specialized in holiday rentals of Villas, farmhouses and residences in Tuscany, Umbria, Lazio and Piedmont.
