Streams, ponds and lakes help irrigate Borgo Pignano’s fields, vegetable gardens, orchards, olive groves and vineyard.
The fields are planted with grains and cereals grown from heritage seeds. Our seasonal vegetable gardens produce a wide variety of foods that are in the earth in the morning and on the table later in the day. We produce traditional organic food, Tuscan breads, natural honeys and preserves, as well as a delicious cold-pressed extra-virgin olive oil. A young vineyard has been planted and the first production of organic red and white wine should occur during 2018.
The link between the countryside and the interiors are evident everywhere: flowers from the gardens are displayed in arrangements throughout the villa, farmhouses and apartments; seasonal menus reflect vegetables and fruits that are at their finest; bathrooms stock toiletries made from plants and flowers grown on the estate; and, in winter, open fireplaces glow with timber harvested from the surrounding woodlands. Two nature reserves, teeming with local flora and fauna, border Pignano’s land.
