About the winery
A unique family-owned estate, Torre Bisenzio sits atop a hillside with arresting views across Umbria, Lazio and Tuscany. The philosophy of the estate is to produce boutique, authentic and environmentally sustainable Umbrian wines. At Torre Bisenzio, which has been organically certified since 2001 and now working biodynamically in the vineyards, we very much believe the future lies in this holistic approach. All of the water on the property is sourced from underground wells, and the electricity produced by solar panels on the barns.

History & Geography
The enviable position of the estate has strong historical roots. Indeed, the beautifully restored Tower or Torre, once a customs post on the border of the Papal States and the Republic of Florence, is a glimpse into 13th century history and forms the jaw dropping focal point of the estate. Neena and Mike Rees purchased Torre Bisenzio Estate in 2003, when it was in a state of complete ruin. It has been passionately restored to its original grandeur combining the best of local materials with modern design and technology. Part of the rebuild included investment into farm buildings raising the indigenous Chianina cows, together with 5 hectares of vineyards, 6 hectares of olive groves (650 trees) and an in-house winery. Originally ocean-floor from the mid Pliocene period (5.3 to 2.6 million years ago), it comprises sedimentary clay, gravel sands and alluvial silt with marine fossils (sea shells and oysters).
