Cesani

The Cesani family's journey began in 1949 when Guido and Annunziata, the family's founders, acquired their first piece of land in Pancole, 6 km from San Gimignano. Initially, they focused on subsistence farming and cattle breeding, but their son Vincenzo's leadership transformed the business into a renowned wine producer. Today, Vincenzo's daughters, Letizia and Marialuisa, carry on the family's values and traditions, reshaping the estate into a dynamic agricultural and winemaking venture that embodies the region's essence. The Cesani Family's philosophy centers on understanding nature's gifts, agricultural expertise, and the human touch. Their commitment to organic farming, preserving the local ecosystem, and biodiversity reflects a deep respect for both nature and humanity. Their company transcends mere business, fostering relationships built on solidarity and collaboration, with a mission to celebrate their region's natural and human heritage.
