The Food Expert:

Our family-owned estate, purchased in the 1990s, is located in the Chianti Classico region, the original and oldest part of the Chianti wine region in Tuscany, represented by the Black Rooster, a highly visible figure on the authentication labels of locally produced wines.

The vineyards are located on a south-facing hillside between 490 and 625 metres above sea level, with a difference in altitude of over 120 metres between the highest and lowest vineyards. The great 1997 vintage saw the birth of our estate’s first official wine: a Chianti Classico DOCG Riserva. Between 2000 and 2003, the family decides to purchase another small property not far from their residence, destined to become their agriturismo.


Cancellation policy: all bookings for the Chianti Classico wine tasting at one of the most famous local wineries can be cancelled within 3 days from the start date of the experience. Read the Terms and Conditions.
