Situated in Tuscany, on the picturesque hills of Carmignano between Florence and Pistoia, about 180 meters above sea level, lies Fattoria di Bacchereto. It is owned by Rossella Bencini Tesi, who inherited the estate after her father & brother passed away in the 1990s. Having no prior experience in the winemaking process, Tesi left management of the winery to other experts until she was introduced to biodynamic and organic techniques in 2000. She then implemented these methods at the winery, and saw a dramatic change in the environment and resulting wine.
Fattoria di Bacchereto is one of only 14 producers who make Carmigniano wine in the DOCG Carmigniano, the smallest appellation in Italy. Not only is it the smallest, but it is also one of the oldest appellations worldwide, having been first registered in 1716. It is a hilly and heavily forested area.
