The Marini Family has a long history of passionate involvement in agriculture: it all started at the beginning of the 19th century, when Mariano Marini produced wines and olive oil in Tizzana, a small village in the province of Pistoia, in the heart of the Chianti area.
Roberto Marini followed in his grandfather’s footsteps and in 1946 decided to purchase the ancient Villa Paternino in Pistoia, where the estate finds today, and the lands which surrounded it, in order to have a bigger place to pursue the winemaking tradition of his grandfather. Over the years he planted more vineyards and olive groves, extending the surface of his property.
Nowadays, Giuseppe, Roberto’s son, is carrying on the Family tradition of more than two centuries with the same ideals which led to its birth, hard, passionate daily work, enthusiasm, determination, ethics and humility.
His sons Fabio, Sara and Laura are now the third generations and are working to create a bridge between tradition and innovation. They aim at implementing new grape growing practices and winemaking methods in a sustainable way, always respecting nature and the seasonal cycles and keeping in mind that high quality comes first.
