I an old farmhouse from 1850, in the heart of the Colline Pisane, the “hills of Pisa”, you´ll find our small family-business Podere Spazzavento, where we produce wine and oil since 2002. We means: the brothers Alessandro and Fabio Piceni Belli, her mother Luisa, her grandmother Elena, his grandfather Ireneo and Alessandros wife Kerstin with the boys Paolo and Filippo. Our Podere Spazzavento is situated on a hill, not far from Ponsacco in direction Casciana Terme, surrounded by 15 hectars of land, hereunder wineyards (8,5 ha), olives, meadows and fields. Our whole production is organic. All activities here at Spazzavento, from the work on the fields, to the work in the winecellar and the commerce, are done by ourselves, this means we run a real family business and are able to guarantee for the quality of our products.
With the help of the agronomist Alfredo Tocchini and the enologist Atilio Pagli we produce excellent biological wines. We began in 2003 when we produced and imbottled two wines (one red and one white IGT – Indicazione Geografica Tipica) and in all 6.000 bottles. In 2009 we produced 35.000 bottles in all, including three red IGT, one white IGT and the Chianti. All our wines are extremely tipical and traditional, both in the choice of the grapes and in the way of making them. Our oil is made from different olive-races such as Leccino, Frantoio, Maurino and Pendolino, which we take off the trees by hand at the end of october.
