La Pieve is an oasis of peace and authenticity in Tuscany, between the hills of Maremma and Monte Amiata. It is an enchanting area that extends to embrace the caresses of the uncontaminated Tyrrhenian sea, at an altitude of 500 meters above sea level.
The area surrounding the Pieve has always been appreciated for the uniqueness of its mild and welcoming microclimate. It has a history rooted in solid traditions, which come from ancient communities of monks and farmers. It tells of a centenary journey of passion, wisdom and devotion, which give the farm a meeting point for those who know how to appreciate the real values of authenticity and genuineness.
The Pieve di San Giovanni is an integral part of the human fabric from which villages and hilltop villages were born. The fortified farms, often built and inhabited by monks, were the germ that, around the year 1000, allowed the population of the hills and more inland areas. The Fattoria La Pieve has more remote origins, in fact we find traces of Papal documents from the 13th century, in which it is described as a place of worship erected by monks dedicated to prayer and agriculture.
Farmhouse, Oil Mill and Cellar
Even the activity of the cellar has always been within the company and deals with organic grapes coming exclusively from the Fattoria La Pieve. As in the best Tuscan tradition, the production and processing of grapes have always been part of the culture of the Petei family, which since 1954 has dedicated itself to taking care of the vineyards and the land in order to obtain a product of excellent quality, as evidenced by the certifications obtained so far: DOC Maremma Toscana, International Organic Certification and European Vegan Certification.
Since 1956, the "La Pieve" oil mill has been producing EVO IGP olive oil using only olives from the Grosseto district (Maremma Toscana). In order to obtain the highest quality level of product authenticity, the products coming directly from the farm have obtained the organic certification.
