Fattoria di Grignano
Fattoria di Grignano is the site of a stunning villa built by the Marchesi Gondi in the 15th century and later completely rebuilt in its current from in the 18th century. Since 1972 it has been owned by the Inghirami family, one of the most important names in Italian fashion. The villa is the core of Fattoria di Grignano, located in the middle of a vast estate that stretched from the Sieve River into the hills above the town of Pontassieve, all within the Chianti Rufina designation zone.
Today, the estate covers nearly 600 hectares divided into 47 farms with orchards and arable crops, although wine and olive growing are the main activites. The old cellars of the historic villa were recently restored to their original splendour and a young, female winemaker Barbara Tamburini makes sure the wines live up to the grand location. Both the winery and the vineyards are certified organic. The particular microclimate of the area, altitude and ventilation allow for high quality of the grapes with minimal intervention.
