Pacina has a long history of exceptional produce from vineyards, olive groves and natural woodlands, stretching across the Chianti region as far as the Crete Senesi.

 

Pacina is a small settlement, home to a number of families.

The estate continues to specialize in fully organic production to utilize the best of our natural resources as well as providing the highest quality.

 

Wines, renowned extra virgin olive oil and the cultivation of cereals, fruit and vegetables from our orchards and market gardens, are included in the list of products.

Such value and inter-related support has increased with time to maintain the energy and strength of vigorous ecosystems, to preserve this variation, generosity and security of both animal and plant life.
