The winery is located in Castellina in Chianti, on the slope down towards Elsa Valley. The estate covers 165 hectares and it is made up of 2 parts: the first one, located 450 meters above sea level, is Cellole, where they have their best vineyards; the second one in San Fabiano Calcinaia located 250 meters above sea level and 10 km distance from Castellina in Chianti, where you can find the rest of the vineyards, office, cellar and owner’s house.
The farmhouse and cellar are part of a small medieval hamlet dating back to around the year 1000 A.D. Guido Serio and his wife Isa arrived in San Fabiano in 1983 and immediately made investments aimed at producing quality wines. They made gradually progress over time, renewing the vineyards, the wine-making chain, the bottling and the cellar for refining the wine in wooden barrels.
Nowadays the winery produces quality wines, appreciated all over the world, and produced exclusively with grapes from its own vineyards. The passage to organic will involve very soon the entire production: wine and oil is the last step of a business choice that combines the quality and sustainability of production.
