History and territory

History and territory In the time of ancient Grece, pine with its seeds, was a symbol of fertility, vital power and immortality.

Dioniso, the God of the wine, used to bring one to the top of the “tirso” his stick-sceptre. In 21st century history repeats itself and we can find this symbol among the sweet Tuscan hills, where Tenuta La Pineta extends itself.

Managed with care and passion from Scortecci family, in order to catch the vital power that this fertile land gives off in every season. Structures and equipments in the forefront melt with the traditional tuscan arts of working, to obtain products and tastes lost in the time by now.

The Estate

The Estate Immersed in the green Tuscan hills, between Florence and Arezzo, Tenuta La Pineta was born in 1985 from Giuseppe Scortecci, who was attracted from the particularity of the place and from the possibility to create a hunting estate.

The main body of the estate extends itself in 110 hectares, which 5 are coltivated in vineyards, 1 in olive grove, 10 are fit for sowing and the rest in wood. To these, other 1,7 hectares of olive grove have been recently added, in a zone called Pieve S. Giovanni particulary adapt to coltivate the olive. To complete the property, there is the owner’s house with the company main building, and an ancient "leopoldinian" house from the 1700 which we are restructing nowadays.

All the lands are in the hill at an average altitude of 300 meters from the sea level.
