In the heart of Tuscany
Fattoria di Piazzano is surrounded by the splendid countryside of Empolese Valdelsa, in the heart of Tuscany. It is a small village of houses on the top of a sweet hill surrounded by vines and olive trees for a total of 60 hectares mostly cultivated by vineyards.
It is here that Bettarini family live and work; where their wines are produced.
Fattoria di Piazzano represent the extraordinary passion for the wines of the entire Bettarini family.
In 1948, Otello Bettarini, a well-known manufacturer from Prato, with the passion for the astronomy, fell so much in love in these places to decide to move here definitively.
In this village, on the hills in the southern part of Empoli, he found the right astral conjuction to begin what will become his main activity: the Viticulture.
It will be later Riccardo, firstly supporting his uncle Otello and then managing by his own the already started activity, who contributed to promote and appreciate Piazzano wines also in the international markets.

Heirs of a culture
At the end of 90s, Riccardo entrusts the management of the winery to his children, Rolando and Ilaria, supported by Michela, Rolando’s wife.
The combination of cultural traditions, land conservation and the application of new agricultural techniques will be the trump card for the production of high quality wines.
