It is also an important occasion to promote Pisa and its province with its incredible Cultural, Historic, Wine & Food heritage.

They are here gathered to represent “Terre di Pisa Wine Production”, a  beautiful territory  of hills, forests, fields, and olive groves, where Wine History goes back to the Etruscans time. Here grapes grow in an area, which once was covered by the sea, in  soils rich on fossil,  and composed of  sand along the coast and limestone towards the inland. That’s the reason of Fine, Complex and Mineral Wines in Pisa ! Moreover, Pisa Wines Producers boast about the “DOC  Terre di Pisa Wine” designation  created in 2011 and “Terre di Pisa Wine Consortium”  founded in 2018 to classify and protect “Pisa Hills Wines” Here a list of the most important ones:

Pisa Top Wines Exhibition

There is  a packed program of must-attend events and activities: tastings, seminars, and workshops run  by industry workers and experts such as:

And last  but not least, it’s worth emphasizing the importance of  great speeches of two renowned journalists regarding the history and the future of Sangiovese. Let’s begin with  Daniele Cernilli  , “Doctor Wine Blog” editor. He claims that Salviati Dukes introduce Merlot (1600) in their estate in Migliarino Pisano before  French  in Bordeaux. Then, Antonio Boco, contributor writer to the famous  “Gambero Rosso” Italian Cuisine guide, highlights the economic value generated by  IGT and  DOC  appelations for this terrific corner of Tuscany, whereas quality plays an important role in determining demand. The message is clear! Pisa  is  something over than the famous Leaning Tower and the city centre. It’s a massive treasure  to be discovered by curious travelers from the Wine Tours through the Pisa Hills  to “Massacciuccoli Lake”, from the “Parco di San Rossore” to the sandy Coast and the Apuan Alps. Wine and Tourism could become a driving force of  job creation, economic growth and development.  Howerever, Politicians, Education Institutions, Enterprises and others,  must invest in Workforce Development ,  Skill Formation and Comunication Strategy. 

Giusti e Zanza Winery

Pisa Coast Wines Press Trip

Pisa is certainly a step in the right direction for interest and commitment of private parties, but  it still has a long way to go, beacuse it needs a more efficient public administration. By the way, I just realize how many Wine-Growing Small and Medium-Sized Wine Enterprises are scattered everywhere in thiz land kissed by the sun. They define the key success factors in the process of internationalization and enrichment of  Pisa and its province. I join a Press Visit at the most enchanting Wineries along the Tyrrhenian Coastline to experience ths Pisa Wine Renaissance: 

  • “Torre a Cenaia”, Crespina Lorenzana: it is an oasis  of peace and tranquility. At “Torre a Cenaia” you can live the experience of a millennial Estate, with its 500 hectares of unspoiled Tuscan countryside, where time seems to have stopped. Wine, Craft Beer, Extravirgin Olive Oil, Restaurants, Events and more. A real unconventional Tuscan Experience not far from Pisa and Livorno; 
  • “I Giusti e Zanza”, Fauglia:  it was born in 1996 from the restoration of an Historical Winery in the Fauglia Hills. Wine has been made here since the 16th century. I find their “Bruno” (100 % Syrah)  excellent. “Pierbruno” is a fulll-bodied wine of an intense purple colour. The bouquet features aromatic undertones  cherries, blackberries and blueberries.The mouthfeel is fantastic with its softness and extra fine elegance. When you taste it you’ll be greeted with a punch of flavor that tapers off and then has a spicy peppery note in the aftertaste;
  • “Sator”, Pomaia: the vineyards cover over 11 hectares in three different plots: Campo San Giovanni, Campo al Pino and Cantina. The Red and White grapes varieties are: Ciliegiolo, Sangiovese, Teroldego, Merlot , Cabernet Franc, Vermentino and Fiano. This is a Family-Run Winery, so most likely you’ll find a family member guiding you on the journey into the World of Wine, starting from their vineyards to the Winery before moving on to the tasting of their Wines, which you can choose to buy afterward as well;
  • “Pagani de Marchi”, Casale Marittimo: it dates back to 1996 and it’s very well-known due to a  glorious archaeological discovery, the so called “Tomba del Principe Guerriero” (“The War Lord Tomb “) with his “Tasting Wine Kit”(a funeral banquet outfit) . Therefore this domain stretches back into the antiquity (VI – IV centuries B.C.). Their Wine are made by Sangiovese, Merlot , Cabernet Sauvignon, and Sauvignon Blanc.
