Borgo Divino and the Maiano estate: naturally organic
The close bond between organic farming and Gianfranco Nigi dates back to 1984, when he implemented a project in Montespertoli which was to culminate in the Maiano Estate in 2000. As well as organic wine, the estate also produces oil, beer, vinegar and durum wheat, from which we make our organic pasta of ancient Montespertoli grains. Thanks to a consolidated experience in organic farming, the Maiano Estate rejects the use of fungicidals, chemical manure or weedkillers, preferring to adopt the ancient farming techniques of the region based on copper and sulphur, the so-called “green manures”, organic manures, special methods of working the land, as well as organic parasite control; such methods are costly but they enable us to offer consumers genuine end-products with an unmistakable flavour.Shop online
Excellent products from our organic cellar in Chianti
The Maiano Estate was initially founded with the acquisition of the first hectares of vineyards at San Quirico in Collina. Later on, with the aim of diversifying production, additional vineyards were purchased in the Municipality of Scansano, where we produce our “Morellino di Scansano D.O.C.G.”. Operations are subdivided between five cellars (four given over to fermentation and one to storage) and two field management centres. Today, the Maiano Estate can count on 65 hectares of vineyards.
