An island like no other
Gorgona is the only penitentiary island in Europe
Today, on the smallest island in the Tuscan archipelago, prisoners can move freely to work and learn new occupations that will help them reintegrate into society.
Since 2011, Frescobaldi agronomists and enologists have been working with prisoners in the vineyard and cellar of Gorgona.
Two hectares of Vermentino, Ansonica and Sangiovese grapes overlooking the sea give life to Gorgona Rosso and Gorgona, a wine that symbolises hope and freedom.
There’s no question that Tuscany is the most well-known Italian wine region abroad. Its diverse territories are essential in determining the character of the food and wine from here. Cradle of Italian language and culture, Tuscany is an unmissable stop for those who wish to dive into the history of a land that gave birth to the such of Dante Alighieri, Galileo Galilei and Giacomo Puccini.
