Laura Angelini and her husband Stefano Salvetti embarked on the wine adventure in 1995, sitting in front of the stone fireplace that gave the estate its name: “La Pietra del Focolare,” i.e. “the stone of the fireplace.” Evocative of warmth and well-being, this name is not just a slogan: Laura, Stefano and their daughter Linda are incredibly kind and caring.
On their 7 hectares nestled in the Colli di Luni appellation area, straddling Liguria and Tuscany, they grow mainly the Vermentino grape (declined in 5 versions), but also some local varieties with red berries, such as Canaiolo.
