Origins

It was founded in 1720 by Bartolomeo Giachi, who left Florence to move to San Gimignano in the locality of Ulignano, settling in a property which included land with a very high wine vocation. Including the strategic importance of the territory, he erected the first walls here close to the Via Francigena ; the place where to lay the first stone was baptized by him "Tenuta Torciano" since it is located on the lands bathed by the ancient torrent "Borro di Torciano" .

Tenuta Torciano develops also thanks to its proximity to the Magione di Torre, the La Scala hospital and the Cistercian monks' monastery. Its wines, chianti and vernaccia, together with the appreciated hospitality, made so that the company became known throughout the region for the production and sale of wine and oil.
