A Look At The Cellar - Vignamaggio

A working farm since 1404, Vignamaggio is one of Tuscany’s oldest farming estates, a Renaissance treasure trove in the heart of the Chianti region, positioned on the hills at the source of the Greve River

Overview

Vignamaggio is one of Tuscany’s oldest farming estates, a Renaissance treasure trove in the heart of the Chianti region, positioned on the hills at the source of the Greve River. 
A wine farm since 1404, Vignamaggio today offers first class accommodation in rooms and apartments, guided tours of its Italian Style gardens and the opportunity to taste the farm’s produce in its restaurant, Monna Lisa. Indulging in a Vignamaggio wine tasting will take you straight to the heart of the estate and on a long journey, which began over 600 years ago. Halfway between Florence and Siena, the estate extends for over 200 hectares in the hills of the Chianti Classico region. Vignamaggio overlooks a countryside landscape, with forests, vineyards and ancient hamlets scattered about on the surrounding hills. At the core of the farm is the Renaissance villa, surrounded by Italian style gardens, which fill the spaces between rows of cypresses, vines and olive trees. 

On all sides, forest mingles with farmland, where for hundreds of years, farmhands have been working the land. At the edge of the forest or among the vineyards, one can glimpse ancient stone farmhouses, once the homes of the sharecroppers. As the seasons’ change, the shapes and colours of Vignamaggio transform. 

Tart forest fragrances permeate the fresh air of spring sunrises, sunsets warm the sky after summer storms, all merging with the distinctive pink of the villa. Winter slowly wraps the estate in a calm silence, as snow blankets the vineyards. A working farm since 1404, Vignamaggio has been cultivating the vines and producing wine for over 600 years. Open to the public since 1987, the historical dwelling offers first class accommodation with rooms, suites, and apartments in the estate’s farmhouses.

Guided tour of the Renaissance cellars and the gardens followed by tasting and snacks. Wines are paired with a selection of Tuscan cheeses and cold meats and some cantuccini biscotti.
