This family business, a certified organic farm since 2002, has specialized in the production of wine, oil, and cereals, according to the genuine Tuscan tradition. The farm activities also include the production of pure saffron of San Gimignano, Vin Santo (typical dessert wine), vegetables from the local kitchen garden, and fresh fruit. They also breed farmyard animals, pigs and horses.

A wing of the house is used by the owners, who reside locally. Each room is fitted with all modern comforts including private ensuite bathroom, fridge, independent heating, and TV (Italian only).
