About the winery
FATTORIA CORZANO E PATERNO is a one hundred and forty hectare farm owned and operated by the Gelpke and Goldschmidt families, heirs to the estate of the Swiss architect Wendelin Gelpke. The farm, situated in San Casciano Val di Pesa, roughly halfway between Florence and Siena, is dedicated to the production of the finest quality wine, olive oil and sheep cheeses.
Since Gelpke’s acquisition of Corzano in 1969 and the subsequent addition of Paterno in 1974 the farm has developed along three specific lines; wine and olive oil production, the artisanal production of sheep cheeses, and “agriturismo” or farm holiday rental. Each of these activities has enjoyed great success and recognition both on a national and international level.
