La Colombaia is a small family run business located in Colle Val d'Elsa in the locality of Mensanello. Born in the seventies, when the Lomazzi family, after having worked for many decades in the wine trade, bought an old abandoned farm that restructured and extended the already existing vineyard. In 2003 the management of the winery passed to Dante Lomazzi and Helena Variara who immediately converted the cultivation of 4 hectares of vineyards to the principles of biodynamics. We find old vines of Sangiovese, Colorino, Malvasia nera, Canaiolo and some rows of cabernet sauvignon. In the vineyard, synthetic products are excluded, and in the small self-sufficient cellar the whole production process is the least invasive possible, with spontaneous vinification with only indigenous yeasts, and additives such as sulfur dioxide, but also the clarifications or filtrations are prohibited. The final products are the Tuscan red Colombaia obtained from the grapes that come from the "old vineyard", the Tuscan white dovecote from native grapes of trebbiano and malvasia, and from the "young vineyard" the red Tuscan Colombia Vigna nuova.
