    Located on the gentle hills of Valdera, in the municipality of Palaia, Usiglian del Vescovo owes its name to the dispute that took place in the 11th century between the Bishop of Pisa and the Bishop of Lucca; the latter took possession of Palaia, while his rival was assigned the ownership of the fief of Usigliano; the castle of the same name, then early medieval Curtes, dates back to this period. Over the centuries, Usigliano has maintained its identity as a small agricultural village with about 200 inhabitants, and only in recent decades it has become depopulated. Today, the estate covers about 160 hectares, 25 of which are vineyards and 15 are olive groves. The centre of the estate is the Villa di Usigliano, the manor house to which all the estates and castles scattered throughout the property were referred, and from which the vineyards of Usigliano derive their name. The Usigliano vineyards stand on soils that vary from sandy-loamy to medium-textured, originating in the Pliocene era from the uplift of a coastal plain and therefore rich in marine fossils. The exposure guarantees a microclimate particularly favourable to viticulture, characterised by regular rainfall, constant ventilation and hot summers mitigated by night-time temperature ranges. Our vines therefore benefit from a special terroir that gives our wines flavour and freshness.
