About Badia a Coltibuono

The historic estate was established as a monastery in 1058. The monks grew vines and olives. Since 1846, it has been tended to by six generations of the Stucchi Rinetti family. In 1962, Piero Stucchi Prinetti realized the potential of the estate’s extra virgin olive oil. He treated his oil production just like his fine wine, taking care in the selection of the fruit and pressing it immediately after harvesting.
