Le Balze of


da Vinci

The Balze of Valdarno are reliefs of stratified debris composed of sand, clay, pebbles and gravel, formed by erosion following the drying up of a lake that covered the area two million years ago and shaped by atmospheric agents. They are the most characteristic element of the Valdarno Superiore landscape, halfway between Florence and Arezzo. The first who noticed their peculiarity was Leonardo da Vinci as evidenced by his manuscripts collected in the Hammer Code or Leicester Code.

The winery overlooks the countryside from a terrace surrounded by vineyards planted with Chianti Classico’s most typical grape, Sangiovese, together with other varieties that were historically planted nearby:  Canaiolo, Ciliegiolo, Colorino, Malvasia Nera, and Mammolo. A small area is dedicated to international vines, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.

You will all remember the tale of the Standardbred horses sequestrated in Trequanda last May, saved from starving to death after their owner suffered a financial setback.

21 horses arrived at our center, causing huge and easily understandable management problems. First of all, there was the financial side, since, after a small contribution from the ANACT and the Siena Attorney, we had to cover all the costs to feed and care for these animals. Then there was the behavioral side: 12 of these horses were short yearlings terrified by human presence, perhaps because no one had ever bothered to approach them in a natural way; perhaps because of the “not very nice” methods used to load them on the vans during the sequestration.


Thanks to IHP and our staff’s patient, constant work, all of these horses have been put back in shape and have become easy to handle and trustful. Then, little by little, we found new families for them, wonderful people who decided to take care of their future by adopting them.


So goodbye guys, may you have a long and happy life all together… and away from the racing world!


Stay with us and simply enjoy the company of our wild horses!

Horsemanship is learning the balance of making the right things easy and the wrong things hard by rewarding, not punishing.

Horsemanship is realizing that to truly connect with a horse, you have to put forth the effort to understand why it is doing what it is doing. Figure out why they are doing something and being able to figure out how to get to understand our language or the signals we use to communicate with them.


Horsemanship is knowing every bump and bruise on your horse's body. Horsemanship is developing a sixth sense for these animals you have spent so much time around, that you are able to tell if something is just a little bit off with them.
