This historic estate is a working vineyard located in the
rolling hills of the Chianti Classico region only 20 minutes
north of Siena. The carefully restored villa sits atop a
hill among vineyards and olive groves with stunning views
of the Chianti countryside. This hilltop was a key lookout
post for Siena during the medieval ages when Florence and
Siena were constantly at war. There are fragments of the
7th Century watchtower where smoke signals were used to warn
of enemy advancement. These fragments are now the fireplace
in the kitchen dining area. With its vantage point today
