Where we began
San Leonardo has been in the family for generations. Originally a restaurant, it was passed down to brothers Cristian and Mauro by their grandfather. With the help of family and friends, they've lovingly grown the estate ever since.
It's always an early start for us on the farm. You'll find us milking the goats, feeding the animals and curing the vines. During busy times we often get friends in to lend us a hand. Although there's work to do, we always take time to chat to our guests, and to sit down together for lunch at midday.
Tending the animals
Our farm includes a donkey, horse, sheep, goats, pigs, hens and not forgetting Ettore the Golden Labrador and Mila the Jack Russell. We treat them like members of the family and they often feast on scraps from the restaurant. You'll get to know them all as they graze freely throughout the estate.
Olive oil making
Our olives are cultivated at the end of October. This is a really important time for us, and we all muck in to make sure the harvest is a bumper one. Our crops are used to produce our delicious, organic olive oil.
