1800

The noble della Gherardesca family began to be involved in the production of wine in their Bolgheri holdings as early as the second half of the 17th century.
But it was with Guido Alberto della Gherardesca, who lived from 1780 to 1854, that a significant change occured.

Passionately interested in viticulture (a passion which he was able to further deepen and refine in France), he became, in 1833, the “principal house-steward” of Grand Duke Leopold II of Tuscany (and his responsibilities, among other tasks, was that of supplying the grand duke’s cellars with wines and matching the wines to the dishes served in the ducal household), Guido Alberto dedicated himself to the production of wine at his Maremma estates.

古道探索庄园曾经是一片约4048公顷(10000多英亩)的贵族封地,沿海绵延七千多米(4英里),那时候属于德拉•吉拉德斯卡家族,他们的祖迹可以追溯到1200多年前。

1930年代,这片地产被卡洛塔•德拉•吉拉德斯卡•安东尼继承,她是皮埃尔•安东尼的母亲,她的妹妹嫁给了马里奥•英西卡•德拉•罗切塔(得到了附近的圣古都庄园作为嫁妆)。庄园里曾经有七座城堡,其中四座仍然屹立在那,还有86座1000年前为了保护这片土地,不受非洲海岸的撒拉逊人侵略而建造的瞭望塔。
