Extra virgin olive oil, WS’ TOP100 wines, 3,000 years old vines, 500 years old recipes: be part of wine & food HISTORY.

In Carmignano vine was already cultivated in the pre-Roman era, about 3,000 years ago, as shown by the wine vessels and tasting bowls found in the Etruscan tombs.

In the state archives of Florence, a parchment dated 804 was found: it is a rental contract that documents how olive trees and vines were grown in Capezzana as early as 1,200 years ago.

In the early Renaissance, a woman, Monna Nera Bonaccorsi, built the first “casa da Signori” and nine farmhouses with the relative wine-growing plants: it was 1475.

This PRIVATE experience includes:

  • Private guided tour of the entire winery: cellars, oil mill and “vinsantaia”.
  • Private vertical wine tasting of Wine Spectator’s TOP 100 wine.
  • Traditional Tuscan full LUNCH with custom wine pairing.
