Under the direction of its founder, Roberto Drighi, the Tenuta San Vito, owned by the Drighi family, planted specialized vineyards and olive groves beginning in 1960. The construction of a cellar and olive press-house led to production of the first wines and olive oils. In the early 1980s, thanks to the far-sighted ideas of Laura Drighi, one of Roberto's daughters, the winery converted its cultivation practices to organic farming, and was officially certified as such in 1985, followed by European Union regulation in 1991. Along with its agricultural activities, the winery began the restructuring, in 1985, of the venerable farm residences on the estate, and the agriturismo now boats apartments, rooms, swimming pools, and a restaurant. Guided visits through the vineyards and winemaking cellar allow guests to discover the countryside and to personally witness the activities in the cellar.
