Our Family

The history of our family began in 1850, with our great grandfather Mariano Marini who, with humility and great dedication, began producing wine and olive oil for the local market.

Roberto Marini followed in his father’s footsteps and in 1946 decided to purchase the Villa Paternino in Pistoia, where the estate finds today, and the lands which surrounded it, to extend the vineyards, the olive groves and expand the wineries.

Giuseppe, Roberto’s son, carried on the family tradition of almost two centuries with the same ideals which led to its birth: hard, passionate daily work, enthusiasm, determination, ethics and humility.

Over the decades the company grew steadily by opening new markets, first in Tuscany and then in the rest of Italy.

At the end of the nineties, Fabio, Laura and Sara Marini, young, far-sighted and raised among the vineyards, joined the company and drove a significant change in quality through the deep renovation of the family’s vineyards and olive groves, major innovations in the wineries, the building of an oil mill inside the property, the addition of  a range of Monocultivar olive oils and the expansion on international markets. They contributed to the creation of a bridge between tradition and innovation and to the growth of the quality and reputation of the Marini wines and extra-virgin olive oils.

Today, they aim at implementing new grape growing practices and winemaking methods in a sustainable way, always respecting the soil, our best ally, and the seasonal cycles of nature. The quality of our wines is rewarded by consumers and professionals who recognize in our brand consistency of values, sincere passion and the taste of an authentic Tuscany.
