Who We Are and What We Do

We are American Ex-Pats from California living in a rural area of Tuscany, Italy near the ancient city of Cortona. Our property is on 26 terraced hectares (64 acres) of woodland, olive groves and vineyards. Part of what we do is to operate an Agriturismo (vacation rental) called Il Rifugio (the refuge). Il Rifugio is a historic farmhouse/villa that comfortably accommodates 10 guests.

We have vineyards for a modest production of Pinot Nero (Pinot Noir) wine and a one thousand tree olive grove for our production of organic extra virgin Olive Oil. We also offer small-group authentic Tuscan cooking classes.

All our olives and grapes are estate grown and certified organic. Our wine is produced from 100% Pinot Noir grapes grown at an altitude of 400 to 500 meters (1,300ft to 1,600 ft).

The goal of our wine and olive oil activity is to produce the best possible quality while respecting the land and working with people that are knowledgeable, passionate and dedicated.
