Located at altitudes of 250-300 metres, the vineyards of Azienda Uggiano stretch over the hillsides joining Montespertoli with Montelupo Fiorentino and San Casciano Val di Pesa. Since 1976 the cellars have been located in San Vincenzo a Torri near the river Pesa, a wonderful testimony to the past and tradition of Tuscany.
The Azienda Uggiano was originally set up by a group of Bergamo businessmen with a passion for Tuscan wines and inspired by a wine expert from the French school, Giuseppe Losapio. In 1976 the vineyard expanded and settled at San Vincenzo a Torri, a beautiful location in the heart of Tuscany, nestled in the countryside in the midst of monasteries, churches and country villas.
