"Il Falcone" is one of the oldest farm in the municipality of Suvereto. From 1911 on, it has been the property of the Petri family. Today the farm is managed by the two sisters Paola and Rosa together with their husbands Vittorio and Paolo. The farm land expands over 100 ha, of which 10 are planted with vineyards and all the surrounding farmland is scattered with more than 4,000 century-old olive trees.

The owners can look back on many years of experience of the whole family that always has dedicated life to the agriculture and tries to combine antique traditions with modern techniques in order to obtain good quality products
Therefore, the use of plant protection products is reduced to a minimum.

It is possible to purchase the products directly on the farm and to make wine tastings, guided by Paolo, a sommelier belonging to the Italian Sommelier association FISAR and to make olive oil tastings, guided by Paola, member of the "panel test"-commission of the Province of Livorno.
