Wine needs a real home, where each space takes on specific connotations, according to the function for which it is intended. Thus, after recovering the old vineyard and buying the two new plots, Ferdinando Biagiotti opened the most beautiful thing, the Cantina, which bears his family's surname and coat of arms and, above all, encapsulates its tradition and values. A place where the activities related to production can be carried out in the best possible way, combining modern technology with the Lucchese excellence that is made of wine and hospitality, of land and men, and an attitude of well-being that, if shared, becomes one of life's most civilized pleasures. So even the cellar could not be just any cellar. The first room houses the steel silos, where fermentation takes place. The second room is where the wine ages in tonneaux for at least 14 months, and after bottling the wine rests and ages for another 6 months before being labeled and offered to the market. In the third room, labors are transformed into energy and joy. Here you taste the wine with local products in the company of friends.

Once there, you will participate in an informal and authentic experience with a visit to one of the vineyards and tasting in Lucca's smallest winery.

Host presentation

Cantina Biagiotti
The vineyard where Steccofino was born dates back to the 1960s and retains characteristics that are now rare, thanks to the uniqueness of its old vines, which have totally different organoleptic and qualitative properties from the new plantings. The first Sangiovese vines date back to the mid-1970s; about 700 vines were then replanted by inserting Merlot, Colorino, Malvasia and Candia. Since 2016, 300 vines have been replanted including Sangiovese, Syrah, Merlot and Vermentino. Today, this family business is run by Francesco, a young entrepreneur with a lot of enthusiasm.
