La Rocca Farm was founded in the early 70’s thanks to the hard work, great skills and intuition
of the two La Rocca brothers, Quirino and Nicola.

About our work...
Working in the countryside is hard and sometimes seasons can be against men will but thanks to La Rocca brothers’ strength, bravery, but also the course of time and the results they obtained it was possible to start this 400 hectare amazing Farm. Today we, sons and daughters, run this business. Since we were kids we have always loved farming and land produce. Over the years we have always kept up with market volatility adapting our products to people preferences and needs. We started off as tobacco and pepper producers, then we moved to tomatoes and melons for industrial production and, finally, today we grow pears, grape, aglione, durum and soft wheat, corn derived from biomass, cabbage, potatoes and other vegetable. Our farmhouse strengths are our strong family ties and large team. Many employees have been working with us for 18 years proving that one of our main targets is a peaceful workplace. Well, working with many people is not always easy, but our parents Nicola and Quirino taught us respect and loyalty.
Ethics and product quality
The way we work aims to preserve biodiversity, precondition and fundamental of agriculture, because we use ecosystem services such as soil and water conservation, maintenance of soil fertility and other organisms. All considered essential for human well-being. Basically, with our work we have to meet the present generation needs and leave it untouched for future generation.
Our concept is a constantly growing farm that monitors market trends and focuses not only on product quality but also on great quantity.
They say about us: our guests' reviews
We stayed for 4 nights along with my husband at Podere La Rocca in July. It’s a charming, very well maintained and looked after place, where attention to details can be seen in each and every corner of the place. Lovely designed rooms, views overlooking the wine yards and jacuzzi available in your bathroom will make your stay very enjoyable. There is a restaurant, where the head chef is also an owner of the place, therefore he always makes sure your stay will be tasty and unforgettable. The location of the place is great, as within 30 mins by car there are many places to visit, such as city of Montepulciano, city of Siena, city of Pinza, or Assisi little bit further down the road, although absolutely worth those couple of minutes more.
We wish we could have stayed here longer! The good feelings began even before we left home! Marianna was great to work with making the reservations and finalizing our stay. A few days before we left, she sent an email inviting us to a lunch in the vineyard, which sounded lovely, which we immediately accepted. Upon arrival, Julia greeted us and we began our vineyard tour, which preceded the lunch. It was so informative, and we were pleased to have a tour by the winemaker, especially since we caught a harvesting day. Afterwards, we enjoyed a wonderful lunch among the vines. It was a relatively small group, which was nice, and chef Frederico kept the food coming! The lunch was accompanied by their wines, which were delicious.
Our stay at Podere La Rocca was everything we hoped for and more. From a gorgeous, spotless room to amazingly delicious meals to a lovely, relaxing pool in a beautiful setting, we can't wait to go back. Marianna was attentive and helpful before and during our stay and gave us great recommendations. Frederico is an extremely talented chef and we enjoyed our meals (both breakfast and dinner) here immensely. We also took a pasta cooking class which was so fun and so delicious! It was hard for us to want to leave the property because it was so relaxing but the location made it a wonderful place for us to visit the many hilltop towns in Tuscany. We also loved the wine and wanted to bring it home with us!
Nestled in the Tuscan countryside, Podere La Rocca sets a high standard for comfort and relaxation. The rooms are wonderful, the views beautiful and hospitality that says, we’re glad you’re here. The owners and staff could not have been nicer or more accommodating . Breakfast was a great start to the day with breads, meats, cheeses, cereals, fruits etc. Schedule a dinner or two while you’re there. The location, only a few miles from Montepulciano make La Rocca a perfect base to explore Tuscany. Outstanding experience.
We were delighted with our five nights at Podere La Rocca, and wish we could have stayed longer! All the staff were warm and welcoming and went above our expectations in every way. The farm stay rooms and gardens are beautiful and immaculately maintained. Fred prepared mouth-watering breakfasts and dinners every day using local ingredients. Melika and the other restaurant staff were more than helpful and friendly. The location combines peaceful surroundings with convenience to key hill towns of Tuscany. One example of being cared for was when we had an issue with our rental car from Florence. Fred, Luca, Karin and Marianna willingly used their local knowledge and time to help resolve the problem. We highly recommend La Rocca!
