For International Women’s Day 2024, we wanted to focus on one of our incredible women-led wineries. 

The Tenuta Fanti estate has belonged to the Fanti family since the beginning of the eighteenth century. It extends across 300 hectares in Toscana, 52 hectares of which are specialized certified sustainable vineyards, 60 hectares are olive orchards with 8,500 olive trees, 80 hectares are used for seed plots, and 70 hectares are forests. In the early 1970s, Filippo Fanti became leader of the company, and refocused its direction towards high quality, starting with the soils. He sustainably replanted the vineyards and olive trees after a careful selection of the most suitable plots within the estate. In 2004, construction began on their modern and spacious gravity flow cellar for winemaking, ageing, and refinement. Tenuta Fanti aims to offer sustainably produced, high quality wines which express the unique terroir of Castelnuovo dell’ Abate.

Filippo’s 40+ years of experience as wine-grower was complemented by the energy and determination of his winemaker daughter Elisa, who joined the family company in 2007, and more recently by second daughter Elena.

We visited with the Fanti family at the winery in August 2023, and shot this short video of Elisa and Elena talking about their family estate.

We’re thrilled to represent a variety of Fanti wines, and olive oils in Ontario. See here for the items currently in stock. In light of International Women’s Day, we’re spotlighting the Riservas, Magnums, grappas, and olive oil with a 10% off sale. *Please note licensees receive 10% off the published retail prices.
