About Paterna Societa Agricola

Paterna is a commune-collective-coop winery and fully functioning farm. In 1985 a small group of friends sought refuge from the encroaching tourism market that we know today as Tuscany. They began with a couple of hectares of land and a dilapidated farmhouse.

Today not much has changed. Paterna continues has grown slowly over the years to what they have now, which is roughly 15 hectares of truly mixed agriculture. The farm is located at the base of the Pratomagno massif, which is an isolated corner of central Tuscany near the source of the Arno River outside of Arezzo. The elevation is quite high and temperatures in this micro-region are some of the coolest in Tuscany. Paterna works only with local, indigenous grape varieties and has some of the oldest plantings of the exceedingly rare Pugnitello vine.

The farm has been certified organic since its foundation in 1982 and goes beyond that by working completely naturally both in the vineyard and cellars. Winemaking is overseen by Gabriella Tani and Elisabetta Barbieri who employ traditional methods: soft pressing and destemming of the grapes followed by a short fermentation with very low doses of sulfur and the addition of natural yeasts only.
