    Farm “Il Poggio” - Curiosities

    The farm “Il Poggio” where Villa Fossi is set, is active agriculturally with different cultivations and productions.
    Among the most representative:

    The Olive grove:

    Positioned on the hilly area with about 2000 olive trees, many are secular, among the various qualities: muraiolo, leccino, pendolino, maurino.

    About 300 quintals a year of olives are picked, the pressing is done personally, with passion and experience, by the owner.

    The company is part of the “Consorzio per la tutela dell’ Olio Extravergine di Oliva Toscano IGP” (Consortium for the safeguard of IGP Tuscan Extra virgin Olive oil) and the oil obtained, exclusively “extra virgin olive oil” is absolutely genuine and can be bought in the farm.

    The vine yards:

    8 hectares of vine yards, sangiovese, cabernet-sauvignon, colorino and trebbiano vines. Every year about 1.000 quintals of grapes are picked.

    The grape harvest is still today done by hand, this means one can operate selectively, with various passages, picking only the grapes which have reached the correct grade of maturation.

    The wine, bottled in the winery, can also be bought in the farm.
