Welcome to Podere Ristella, your relaxing holiday in the Maremma countryside just a few kilometers from our beautiful sea!

Farmhouse
A passion handed down from generation to generation
Love and passion for wine-growing
The farm originated in the 1940s when my family went down from the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines and after a life entirely devoted to sheep-breeding, they decided to integrate this trade with viticulture.
This tradition has been extremely strengthened over the years thanks to the exemplary commitment and dedication of Ulisse Pagliai, my father-in-law, passionately fond of wine, as well as being a successful keen wine grower.
In the 1980s, my husband and I started to run the business ourselves by planting new selected vineyards in order to give our future wines a considerable increase in quality and prestige.
Daniela Valentini
