VEGAN CUISINE AT I PINI IN SAN GIMIGNANO
At the Biotique Agrivilla i pini in San Gimignano, we know exactly where the ingredients for our homemade breakfast and dinner come from. We live sustainability and we love regionality. We live vegan. And we love honest, organic food, preferably from our own garden or from local farmers that share our philosophy.
ROOMS AND SUITES – A SUSTAINABLE ARCHITECTURAL PROJECT
Chalk, clay, hemp, wood, linen. We bring natural and sustainable building materials to the interior. We rely on elegance and harmony. Since your vacation in the heart of Tuscany should be inspiring just as the newly renovated Agrivilla i pini in San Gimignano.
ORGANIC AGRICULTURE – FROM FARM TO TABLE
On more than 15 acres we produce local wines, our fruity spicy cold-pressed olive oil, Vin Santo, small quantities of saffron, lots of cherries, lemons, apricots, figs and a whole lot of vegetables. Everything in pure and organic quality, following the phases of the moon. For our lovely guests and all the i pini people.
Since we are not fans of chlorine in our water, we have decided to fill our pool with salt water instead to enjoy spectacular views on San Gimignano. The salt feels pleasant on your skin, can be well- tolerated and is additionally environmentally friendly.
SIMPLY UNIQUE LIVING
The vegan-organic winery i pini is situated in the heart of Tuscany. Tucked away in a quiet olive grove and surrounded by vineyards.

On bumpy gravel roads and far away from mass tourism. Tranquil, natural and pristine. Can there be something more beautiful?
