In the ancient Travalda estate, name dating back to Roman times, is located the headquarter of the Castellani winery and the vineyard of homonymous “Bordelaise blend”. The estate is located in the Arno valley a few miles from the coast in the town of Pontedera, expanding logistic area, and for this reason chosen in the seventies to build the bottling winery where the offices and logistics warehouse are located. Within the estate is the “casa degli archi”, rural nineteenth-century structure that houses the aging cellars of red wines produced from grapes grown in the adjacent five hectares of vineyard. The decision to dedicate the vineyard to the cultivation of Bordeaux grape varieties comes from the desire to continue the tradition of the Tuscan coast who sees in Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot the main vines of the great coastal "Super Tuscans". The vineyard is conducted under biological system.
