Il Borgo Di Vèscine

A millenial love story

The ancient Castelvecchi cellar

We are in the heart of Chianti, in the famous historical three municipalities, between Gaiole, Radda and Castellina, already mentioned and set in the notice of the grand Duke of Tuscany in 1716: the first legal document in history that determines an area of wine production.
 
The cellar of Premiata Fattoria di Castelvecchi dates back to 1043, it’ s the most ancient cellar still active in Chianti.
The winery is located at Castelvecchi, fortified village of the XI century, mentioned in the “Cards of the captains of part guelfa” as “Novella Florentine family”.
Here the green landscape of vineyards whispers echoes of a story that went through an entire millennium.
 

We bottle history, since 1043

A GREAT PROJECT OF CULTURE AND CULTURAL PRESERVATION

Eleven Cru, in just twenty-four hectares, draw a world of rare oenological shades. Here every single plant awaits the exact moment for its harvest, and here the wisdom of winegrowers proved as an heroic quest.
