Description in Detail
Historical Winery is an estate that covers more than 40 hectares and includes a historical villa, a cellar used for wine production and preservation, an annex for storage, vineyards, olive groves, beautiful gardens, and woods. The estate is located in front of what used to be a jail during the time of the Medici family, used to incarcerate soldiers fighting during the battles of the Republic of Florence-Siena. The main villa measures approximately 400 m2 and is distributed on two levels as follows:
On the ground floor, upon entering the villa you will find a lobby area featuring a wall-to-wall library. Further in, towards the left, you will find a corridor, which provides access to the 3 bedrooms. The master bedroom features an en-suite bathroom with a big tub and windows facing the vineyards. The other 2 bedrooms share a big central bathroom.
At the end of the corridor, you will find stairs leading down a sub-level to an apartment, which also has a private entrance on the other side of the building. The apartment includes a kitchen and bathroom.
Across the entrance lobby, and towards the right is the stairs leading to the second floor where you will find a large living room with huge windows facing the vineyards, a dining area, a fully equipped kitchen, and a balcony featuring a staircase to the rooftop where you will find a 10 person Jacuzzi on the roof with an amazing panoramic view of the Tuscan hills.
Adjacent to the main villa is the cellar, which measures approximately 800 m2 and is used for the production and preservation of the wines. On the second floor is another apartment currently used as a studio, featuring 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. On the right side of the cellar is the connecting annex used for storage and to harvest equipment.
The vineyards extend over 10 hectares, while the olive grove has about 300 to 320 trees of about 40 years of age. The wines produced are of excellent award-winning quality, mostly Chianti Classico and IGT Super Tuscan, in addition to the production of a fine Vin Santo.
The entire farm is completely organic and only natural fertilizers are used, not only benefits the wine and oil production but also the production of fine honey from their bees.
Annual production in 2015 has been approximately 330 quintals, but with production, at its best, it tends to increase to 420/450 quintals.
0,8 hectares of new vineyards have recently been built. Vines face towards south/south-east, so the exposure to the sun is ideal to obtain the best production. The cellar is gifted with oak barrels, French barriques, and cement vats for fermentation, other than the vinsantaia, all used for the production and the aging of the wines. At Historical Winery, vinification systems deeply respect the local winemaking tradition, using at the same time the most advanced techniques.
