Torre a Cenaia Estate occupies an area of about 500 hectares in the municipality of Crespina Lorenzana, in Val Tora at the foot of the Pisan hills not far from Pisa and Livorno. Both cities are reachable in a few minutes thanks to the SGC Fi-Pi-Li (Cascina-exit towards Pisa, Lavoria-exit towards Livorno).
It’s like a little world in which time seems to be stopped and the Tuscan countryside expresses at its best the age-old balance between man and nature. From the charming village of Old Cenaja, a long avenue of cypress trees leads to the green heart of the Estate: cultivated fields, orchards, lakes and ponds, vineyards, oak woods, old farm houses scattered everywhere and built centuries ago, when agriculture was based on sharecropping.
The nature reserve represents a resting place for many species of birds, which found in aquatic environments of the Estate the ideal place to live and reproduce themselves. Thanks to this, Torre a Cenaia contributes to the repopulation of native species in the surrounding area: it is not uncommon to come across hares and pheasants that live here undisturbed.
The 30 hectares of vineyards express their best in deeply Tuscan white and red wines. In particular, the presence of the Pisan mounts that protect the Estate from the influences of the north, the proximity to the coast and the sea breeze that blows from the west favor the production of Vermentino wine: the award-winning Cenaja Vermentino is the highlight of Torre a Cenaia wines. But also Sangiovese, the Tuscan “blood of Jupiter”, and other grape types found in the clay soil of Cenaia a place to grow and make fruit in a really luxuriant way.
Today the Estate is owned by the family Terzi-Coppini and is a dynamic company that combines its ancient history and its traditions with latest technology. Organic agriculture and green energy, craft agricultural beer, zero kilometer restaurants and tourism are combined with the original wine vocation of the Estate that constitutes the soul of this generous and unique land of Tuscany.
