Vernaccia di San Gimignano Bio - San Quirico Winery in San Gimignano

of Azienda Agricola San Quirico
Our Winery Azienda San Quirico in San Gimignano is runned by our Vecchione family from 4 generations (since 1860) and we produce about 750 Hl of Tuscan and San Gimignano quality red and withe wines and an excellent and finest quality of Extravirgin Olive Oil in organic farm.

The quality of the land, well exposed on average hill at an altitude ranging from 200 to 300 m s.l.m., is optimal for the cultivation of vines.
Currently our vineyards are extended for 14.50 hectares of which 7.25 are cultivated for the production of Vernaccia di San Gimignano white grapes and 7.25 hectares for the Chianti Colli Senesi and San Gimignano DOC.

Here are our main autochthonous vines and other small varieties:
For White Wines: mainly Vernaccia di San Gimignano grapes and a small variety of Trebbiano and Malvasia.
For Red Wines: mainly Sangiovese grapes and a small part of Merlot and Syrah

In 2004 our Farm obtained the Biological Certification through the QC control body srl.
The processing methods used, in line with the EC Regulation 834/07, provide for organic BIO certified fertilization and the use of copper and sulfur for the Phytosanitary fight, without any use of synthetic chemicals.
Since 2012 also the vinification method is certified organic.
