Who we are

The Poggio La Noce Estate

The estate was founded by husband and wife team, Enzo Schiano and Claire Beliard, in 2000. Nestled in the hills of Fiesole, Tuscany, facing south/southwest, the property sits in some of the most beautiful countryside just outside Florence, amidst hills sprinkled with medieval bell towers and castle ruins.

The property consists of a 5 acre vineyard, cultivated primarily with Sangiovese grapes, in a mix of older vines (18 years+) and younger vines (10 years+). The vineyard, thanks to its small size and human dimension, is cared for maniacally, making it a real jewel.

From the beginning, we set out to farm organically and have been certified organic since 2006.
