GR 1 5652 Il Pingro:
The name GR1 5652 is linked to the number plate of the Pasqualino tractor, which belonged to our great-grandfather and which we still use to work in the vineyard.
IL PINGRO is a young business run by Chiara and Margherita: two cousins determined to breathe new life into the old family vineyards. Only 1 km from the sea, in the province of Grosseto, our vines grow on sandy and mineral soils, shaken by the gusts of the Mistral: that is why our wine tastes of the sea. Produced by four hands along the coast of the Tuscan Maremma, GR1 5652 is made from native Ansonica and Procanico grapes. The end result reflects us and our land. Our philosophy is based on healthy and respectful agriculture: every step of the process is done by hand. What we offer is a simple wine, but made with care. Inspired by the taste of the farmer’s wine. IL PINGRO comes from ‘il Pingrosso’, the name of the place where we are located. In the middle of the field is a large maritime pine tree that our great-grandfather planted to find some shade on hot summer days. This pine tree, which grew solitary, became a ‘big pine tree’ in width, hence the name Pingrosso. Shortened to Pingro, for simplicity’s sake. Today that pine has become our symbol, impossible not to notice.
