At the time of ancient Greece, the pine cone – with its seeds – was a symbol of fertility, vital power and immortality. Dionysus, God of the vine, used to bring a pine cone on top of his “Thyrsus” stick-sceptre.
In the 21st century, history repeats itself and we encounter this symbol upon the sweet hills of Tuscany, where Tenuta la Pineta is located.
The Scortecci family manages the estate with care and passion, in order to catch the vital power emanating from this fertile land in every season. Modern facilities and advanced equipment blend with the traditional Tuscan arts of manufacturing, to achieve products and tastes lost in time.
