Antica Fattoria La Parrina is a very historical farm that lies among the hills of southern Tuscany, specifically in Maremma. Monte Argentario and the beaches of Giannella and Feniglia which are separated by the lagoon of Orbetello form its unique landscape.
In this place of true bliss, you will have the opportunity to take a relaxing and salutary walk among the vineyards, visit the wine factory, or maybe do some horse-riding among the olive and fruit trees - or you could do it at night and enjoy this wonderful countryside under the light of the moon! In addition, it's possible to have a guided wine and cheese tasting tour, or even participate in cooking classes with professional chefs using products that come from the farm. Another prominent thing to mention is that there are 65 hectares of vineyard at Parrina, hectares where white and red grapes are cultivated. Sangiovese is the tradition vine for red and rosée wines while Trebbiano, Ansonica and Vermentino are the typical grapes used to produce white wines. Passionate research has been carried out by the farmers in order to find out about how to best exploit the great potential of this area and has consequently has led to the introduction of new vines, such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon or Sauvignon Blanc.
