In the past

Croce di Bibbiano in the past was a monastery build up in the late Middle Ages as halfway stage between San Gimignano and Colle Val d’Elsa. Pilgrims walking along the ancient Francigena route used to stop here along their way to Rome. Still today our vineyard is crossed by the ancient path that join San Gimignano and the town of crystal, Colle Val d’Elsa. This path is an amazing 7 kilometres’ promenade immersed in the most beautiful countryside of Tuscany.

The legend says that exactly on this property a little girl found one of the Holy nails of Gesus’cross, today conserved in the Cathedral of Colle Val d’Elsa. This place still today inspires this holiness and an amazing peace. Its position and the way Croce di Bibbiano lays on the famous hill called “Poggio del Santo Chiodo” make really think about a place proud of its history. If you close your eyes for a minute you can still imagine a pilgrim passing over with his sack on his shoulder.
