Castello di Pomino, designed by Florentine architect Gherardo Silvani, houses the estate winemaking cellars.

Recognised in 1716 by Cosimo III de’ Medici, Grand Duke of Tuscany, for the excellence of its wines, Pomino vaunts an environment unique for Tuscany: a perfectly-balanced ecosystem of vineyards, fir forest, chestnut trees, and olive groves. The estate covers 1,458 hectares lying along the wooded slopes of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines, with 108 hectares in vineyards, at elevations ranging from 300 to 750 metres. The Frescobaldis were the first in Tuscany to cultivate international varieties, planting Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Bianco, and Pinot Grigio. Sangiovese is also grown at lower elevations. Thanks to slightly acidic soils and the dry, cool weather of these more northerly areas, these vineyards yield highly aromatic wines of striking finesse and distinctiveness.

The unique qualities of this local terroir and the long history of its international varieties, have won for Pomino official approval of Pomino Bianco and Rosso DOC.
