Wine has been produced in Carmignano since the Roman times. The discovery of an award given by Julius Ceaser for wine production, and jars of wine in an Etruscan tomb made historians first aware of this. The wine production industry is as old as the Ancient Roman art which brings tourists flocking to Tuscany every year. The region between the Arno and the Ombrone rivers has experienced a continuous growth of vines since the Roman times. A lease for land dated 804 A.D. describing the cultivation of olive trees and vines has been found in the State Archives of Florence. This remarkably shows that wine has been produced in Carmignano for 1200 years, making it one of the oldest industries across the whole of Italy.
