In Italian Terra means both soil, land and earth, and Seta means silk, while it is also part of the family name. This brand represents therefore the core of the Della Seta-Pellegrini family’s philosophy ad goal, which is to obtain traditional, excellent, and refined products from their unique land property.
Since 2001, Terra di Seta winery is part of a family-run organic farm overseen by Daniele Della Seta and his wife Maria Pellegrini. The farm sits on a hill near Siena, about 1,574 feet above sea level, with a 360 view on the Tuscan countryside of the famous Chianti Classico area.
While the Della Setas come from an ancient Jewish family settled in Rome since 2000 years, the Pellegrinis are an old Tuscan family with strong tradition and experience in wine production.
In 2008, the Pellegrini-Della Seta family decided to dedicate the entire grape production (around 37 acres of vineyards) to kosher wine (OK certification) becoming the only completely kosher winery in Tuscany.
