Azienda Agricola LA LASTRA - San Gimignano Siena - Our History

Our History

La Lastra is not just the name of our farm, but it is a project of rural life that we have started in the early Eighties...
...We were on our twenties and we had just obtained our high school diploma in Agricolture at Istituto Agrario di San Michele all’Adige (Tn - Fondazione Edmund Mach). We then moved to San Gimignano to complete our studies in wine growing and oenology.
Since the very beginning this hilly countryside rich in history, beauty, and authenticity had enchanted us to the point of starting a bold project of life: a project of sustainable vine growing.
After ten years of studies and work as vine and wine experts in the countryside of the Sienese area, in 1994 my husband Renato Spanu, my brother Christian Betti, and I, together with the friends of all our lives Enrico Paternoster and Valerio Zorzi founded La Lastra, with the prime goal of producing high-quality, sustainable wines, as a pure expression of the territory were they are produced.
In 2000 we added to La Lastra - located in San Gimignano - “Marciano”, another small wine and olive estate, located very close to the city centre of Siena. We immediately started the farming activities following organic methods and we also started the “Agriturismo Marciano” project, where we still live with our guests today.
