The FarmCultivated fields and woodland in the verdant Umbria
Farming, nature and tourism.
The farm in Tenuta di Caiolo estate extends for about 120 hectares on the hills below the fortified hamlet of Panicale.
The farm holiday structures are located on the slope that goes towards the Nestore Valley; in this part of the estate, in its untouched nature, there are olive groves, forests, meadows, pastures, bee hives and horse stables. Fruit trees are scattered in the vicinity of the holiday farmhouses.
On the other side of the estate, located on the side facing Lake Trasimeno, the farm produces soft and durum wheat, corn and sunflowers. Here are also situated our vineyards which are mainly composed by Sangiovese and Grenache vines (the latter produces the wine named Gamay del Trasimeno).
Our grapes are transformed in wine at the Cantina Duca della Corgna, where Massimo is the chairman.
Excellent quality products are both our honey and extra virgin olive oil produced by the milling of various quality of olives,Frantoio, Leccino, Moraiolo, Rosciola di Panicale and Dolce Agogia.

We produce honey with organic methods. Our beehives are located in the green of the Caiolo estate, where the bees have nourishment and spaces not contaminated by pesticides.
Beekeeping is an activity that contributes, not only to the protection and maintenance of the environment and biodiversity, but also to agro-forest and forest production through the pollination action of the bees.
You can buy our honey at our Tasting Center ‘La Terrazza’ at the Tenuta di Caiolo estate.
