The History and Significance of Frescobaldi

Frescobaldi, a renowned wine brand, embodies the essence of Tuscany, showcasing its exceptional dedication to viticulture and the rich diversity of its territories.

The Uniqueness of Frescobaldi

What sets Frescobaldi apart is its ability to capture the essence of this diversity through its estates and wines, offering a captivating array of aromas and sensations.

Behind each bottle of Frescobaldi wine lies the heart of the people, including agronomists and oenologists, who intimately experience the vineyards and terroirs to grasp every intricate detail. Their craftsmanship adheres to a strict rule of respect—respect for tradition, which serves as their guiding light even when embracing innovative solutions; respect for Tuscany, a living land to be nurtured with balance and harmony; and respect for each unique terroir, which, owing to its distinctive combination of soils, altitudes, and microclimates, imparts its own individual personality to the wines.

A Legacy Spanning Centuries

The commitment to viticulture and agriculture has always been a defining characteristic of the Frescobaldi family, who have been producing wine in Tuscany for an impressive seven hundred years, tracing back to the early fourteenth century. Throughout their lineage, the family boasts illustrious figures from various domains, including literature, exploration, music, banking, the clergy, and politics.

The family's archives hold numerous ancient documents, and their registers reveal commercial contracts with numerous European courts dating as far back as the thirteenth century. During the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, the Frescobaldi family supplied wines to the English and Papal courts, as well as various other European countries. Even prior to that, the family fostered relationships and commercial connections with esteemed artists such as Donatello, Michelozzo Michelozzi, and Filippo Brunelleschi.

Frescobaldi Interprets Tuscan Diversity

One of Frescobaldi's core aspirations is for their family estates, with their vineyards, to serve as a vivid expression of Tuscan diversity. They believe that each wine should faithfully reflect the character of its specific terroir, honouring its intrinsic nature and authenticity.

Moreover, diversity is not limited to their wines alone—it extends to the pure flavours found in their olive oil and the exquisite dishes prepared in their restaurants. Embracing diversity also encompasses the cultural realm, with projects like the "Artists for Frescobaldi" initiative, which fosters the Renaissance of arts and individuals. Additionally, Frescobaldi demonstrates social responsibility through their involvement in rehabilitating prisoners on the island of Gorgona.

Tuscan Excellence and Sustainable Practices

For Frescobaldi, achieving excellence means upholding the principles of Integrated and Sustainable Agriculture across their estates. They meticulously adhere to these practices and have held AgriQualità certification since 2012. This certification guarantees the use of ecologically sustainable agricultural techniques that harmonize with the preservation of the natural environment.
