More than a desire, a destiny intertwined with our family and this unique and special land that is our home: la Lunigiana.

Our first harvest was in 2006. More than a desire, a destiny intertwined with our family and this unique and special land that is our home: la Lunigiana.

The Podere Fedespina vineyards are located in the Tuscan Apennines, surrounded by the green hills of La Lunigiana, at 250 m. above sea level, and enjoy an ideal exposure to the sun as well as climate for viticulture of character.

Through the years, Mirta Fedespina and Antonio Farina, owners of the farm and wine-lovers themselves, together with wine maker Francesco Petacco, who enthusiastically, and like-mindedly, providing his precious advice as to the entire production cycle, have demonstrated that Alta Lunigiana, a land rich and generous in nature and typical local products, has all the credentials required to produce quality and prestigious wines, in the best Tuscan tradition, safeguarding only the characteristics of the territory, without conforming to wines produced in other regions.

Therefore, in 2003, they decided to renew their vineyards, and as a pilot project re-planted Merlot (which has been in Alta Lunigiana since the early 20th century) and Ciliegiolo, a well-known vine in Northern Tuscany, as well as throughout the region in general, apt for expressing the territory.

Development continued with the acquisition of part of a prestigious vineyard close to the farm. Located in an open, magnificent valley called Valle di Caprio where, with of Monte Orsaro (1831 m.) as a background on which, more than 40 years ago, began the experimentation as to the production of the classic-method spumante. The results, at the time, were excellent.

Podere Fedespina, since 2014, has managed part of the vineyard, which in the past was dedicated to the production of Pinot Nero and since 2015, has flanked the two historic wines, with this prestigious grape variety, purely produced from vineyards that are more than 40 years old, and in a limited number of bottles, inheriting as its name, that of the company, “Fedespina”.

Throughout these 40 years, this grape variety has maintained its identity, but the wine which comes from it, expresses uniqueness, since it is also an expression of the territory.
