|In the fifteenth century, the Marquises Gondi built the villa of Grignano in the middle of a vast estate that stretched from the Sieve river into the hills above the town of Pontassieve.
In the eighteenth century, the complex was extensively restructured, and it acquired the solemn, stately character we can admire today.
The history of the Gondi family in Grignano came to an end in 1972, when the villa and the entire estate were purchased by the Inghirami, a Tuscan family from Sansepolcro.
Today, the farm covers nearly 600 hectares, with sown fields, orchards and woods, but its main activity focuses on the estate vineyards and olive groves.
Substantial investments have been made to valorise and update the old vineyards, while the rooms in the lovely cellars of the historic villa have been restored to their original splendour, with new areas for producing and aging wine.
Chianti Rufina Annata, Chianti Rufina Riserva, Chianti Rufina Gran Riserva “Poggio Gualtieri” and Vinsanto are the pride of the estate, alongside its olive oil, which is cold-pressed at the mill on the premises and is known for its excellent sensory qualities.
