Meet Tommaso and Nicola, the owners of Fattoria San Leolino.

It is in Londa, in the heart of the Florentine mountains, that the story of Fattoria San Leolino unfolds. Family-run since 1645, it was founded by Casimiro Dufour Berte, the founder of the Dufour Berte family, who passed on the company’s founding values to subsequent generations.

Today, following in the footsteps of their great-great-grandfather Casimiro, Nicola and Tommaso, each with a specific role, run the company with dedication: Nicola takes care of the olive-growing and oil-pressing side of the business, while Tommaso, together with his wife Nanette, is responsible for the wine-growing and the management of the farm.

Born in Florence, the two brothers left the city and moved to the mountains to devote themselves entirely to running the business. It was a decision that required sacrifices, but one that is rewarded daily by their passion for what they do and their love for their homeland.

For them, the mountain is an authentic, peaceful place where they can find themselves.
