300 Years Anniversary of Tenuta Torciano, 1720-2020
Tenuta Torciano Winery includes fiftheen generations of winemakers who have been able to give life to high quality wines, where the knowledge of traditional methods is combined with modern technologies. The art of wine making is something that has been handed down from father to son, for the last 300 years, starting from 1720, an important heritage that today represents the secret of our success.
The Giachi family has been engaged in the production of wine for hundreds of years, since 1720. Bartolomeo Giachi, from Florence, settled in the territory of San Gimignano, everywhere known as a land of high-quality grapes. Throughout this period the family has personally managed the business with courageous and very often innovative decisions, always maintaining a fundamental respect for tradition and for the natural habitat. The company goal has always been to investe in wine-growing land to improve the quality of wine production both in Italy and abroad. In 2002 to continue the family tradition, they took the ownership of the ancient Chigi Tower, one of the fourteen historical towers still left in San Gimignano. This tower features a complex medieval history and a private collection of historical documents about the Vernaccia white grapes, cultivated in our estate.
Pierluigi Giachi is at the same time owner and winemaker of Tenuta Torciano and carries on the centuries-old tradition together with his wife Luciana and and their children Emanuele and Vittoria. Tradition, passion, instinct and love are the guiding principles that have lead the management of the company by the Giachi family, who in 2020 will celebrate its 300 years of activity, during which the art of making wine has always been handed down from father to son.
