Description

Region

The Cesani Winery is located in the Tuscan hills, in San Gimignano just 20 km from Siena, in one of the most beautiful and fascinating areas of Tuscany.

The Cesani family’s story started at the beginning of the 1950s in the splendid Tuscan countryside, just 6 km from San Gimignano.
In that difficult period when people preferred to abandon the countryside for a presumably better life in the towns, Cesani, on the contrary, refused that philosophy, deciding to renew faith and hope in that very nature that had given them sustenance up until then. Vincenzo Cesani grew up with this spirit and idea, always looking for new proposals and methods of work to realize his dream.

Grower

The entire family, together with an expert staff of helpers, contributes in the running of the farm, personally overseeing every step of the production in order to ensure the very high quality for which the farm is known and appreciated, the secret of which is the winning combination of constant loving care in the vineyards and modern equipment in the cellars. Even though Vernaccia is the most famous wine in the area, the Cesani family have become famous all over the world particularly for their red wines, all based on Sangiovese, about which it is possible to read in the most important wine guides.
