Wine cellar and production facilities
The large wine cellar is a relatively modern building spread over two floors, providing space for the wine and olive oil production, including cement wine vats, bottling area, dry storage area and an estate office.
The estate covers a total of 35 hectares of which 17 hectares are specialised vineyards; 10 hectares of arable and olive groves (approx. 1,000 trees producing 1,500-2,000 litres of olive oil per year). The remaining land consists of woodland.
The vineyards consists of 6 hectares of mixed white grape varieties, planted in 1992 and 11 hectares of red grapes, planted in 1999. There is a further 1.5 hectares of abandoned vineyards, but which retain their planting rights. This represents a potential production of approx. 60,000 bottles of wine per year, although the grapes are currently harvested and sold to the Frescobaldi estates.
Adjoining farm estate
In 2002 a further property with 10 hectares of land bordering the estate was purchased. The house, with a total living area of 550m² is in need of a total refurbishment.
