According to typical rural tradition of Chianti area and Tuscany, in general, Poggiacolle farmhouse lies over 2 hills and farms vineyards and olive groves. The holiday villa, an original Tuscany building dating back to 1700, is just 2km away from San Gimignano (Siena).
The property measures about 40 hectares with its organically farmed produce.
In the property of this organic farmhouse, in addition to vineyards and olive groves, there are green pastures and woodlands.
The cultivation of saffron, very precious and ancient spice, already produced in San Gimignano in medieval times , has been reintroduced over a small piece of land of about 200 square metres.
Near the holiday villa we have a vegetable garden with the typical vegetables of our Tuscany countryside (tomatoes, lettuce, zucchini, peppers, cucumbers, cabbage and carrots) together with aromatic plants.
Poggiacolle farmhouse uses its white grapes for the production of the famous Vernaccia di San Gimignano and Vin Santo Toscano, and its red grapes for the wine Chianti Colli Senesi.
