Our Story

We make wine as it once was

Podere Borgaruccio

It has its roots around 1600 and is one of the oldest farms in the area.

We are in Tuscany, a symbol of the excellence of Italian enology where viticulture has always been practiced since the time of the Etruscans.

It is an ancient farm in the town of Pèccioli, in the province of Pisa, that dominates the Era valley from the top of its hill along the route that leads from Volterra to Pisa, a place with a strong agricultural and tourist vocation crossing hills painted with vineyards and olive groves.
Podere Borgaruccio extends for about 10 hectares of vineyards, olive groves and woods.

The planted area of more than 5 ha has plots dating back to the early 70s.


The origins

The rediscovery of traditions

The history of the farm dates back as far as 1163 where the name of Giovanni Borgarucci appears, Knight and landowner in the Era valley, producer of wines and oil.
With regard to other historical information that has followed one another over the six centuries, can find:

  • in 1560 relative to the toponym Borgaruccio it was found in the collection “Fiumi e Fossi” (Medici land registry), where among the assets of Mr. Francesco di Girolamo Borgarucci, who lives in Pèccioli, it is mentioned: “A piece of working land in a place called the Pèccioli plan or the Arenella plan, referred to as the Borgaruccio fund”.
  • in 1690, again in the collection “Fiumi e Fossi” (Medici land registry) it is noted that among the assets of Mr. Jacopo Di Giovanni Bessi living in Pèccioli, it is mentioned: “A piece of working land in a place known as the Poggio al Borgaruccio”.

Over the centuries the owners change but the toponym resists.


The family

Our wines are like us

Today the farm is owned by a group of young, dynamic and passionate entrepreneurs who intend to enhance and best express the art of viticulture by aiming at a continuous search for innovation while remaining consistent with the authenticity of traditions. Extensive and ambitious ampelographic expansion projects are underway, in order to always perfect our wines.
