The history of Peri Bigogno winery goes back to 1946 when Graziella and Adriano Peri moved to Castenedolo and purchased Palazzo Togni.
The vineyards that already surrounded the Palace and the historic underground cellar convinced Adriano to continue the tradition of viticulture and wine production.
Already from the early years, the white and red wines produced on the hill by the Peri family began to gain appreciation.
Since 2008, with the entry of Adriano's son, Andrea, started a new phase for the winery with entering 3 continents in just a few years.
In 2012, the inauguration of the new and modern winemaking area and the entry of his wife Francesca marked a solid foundation on which to continue to grow for the winery, now led by the third generation.
In 2021 the winery started making wines following Low Histamine protocol with the level of histamine not higher than 0.5mg per litre. Current range includes a white Chardonnay (slightly ages in oak), Rosato from the local grape Marzemino and Red from the same local grape Marzemino.
Today, Pier Luigi’s daughter Lia Tolaini Banville continues his dream of making Tuscan wines that honor the distinctive terroir of Castelnuovo Berardenga. Lia is preserving the impressive legacy of Pier Luigi while bringing new ideas and innovation to the Tolaini Estate.
Donna Laura estate is a separate estate also belonging to Tolaini family that is taken care of by the same enologist and agronomist as the Tolaini estate.
