A superlative expression of Tuscan charm embodying modern-day luxury

With its 8- bedroom villa and its many working buildings comprising a total of 1200 sq.m., this incomparable property presents a turnkey opportunity to live out your dream Italian lifestyle while continuing the wine production legacy

A true haven of peace for this exceptional 12 ha wine estate nestled in the heart of the Val d’Orcia, featuring a masterfully designed villa with oversized swimming pool, superb materials for the utmost comfort, and an already established production of internationally renowned wine Bordeaux of the Crete Senesi.

The Villa

This stunning estate stands out not only due to its majestic winery but also because of its long history. It originally was part of a larger property owned by an ancient family from Siena, and in the early seventeenth century it was registered in the Grand Duchy of Tuscany.

In 2002 the property was acquired by the current owners. They have spared no expense investing in a careful remodel of the entire estate, focusing on the main buildings, the vineyards, and all the structures necessary for wine production. The renovation was conducted with the utmost respect for the historical significance of the property. They employed the finest materials that were either part of the historical buildings or locally sourced, but of the same age. The result is a harmonious blend of Tuscan charm and modern comfort showcased in the materials, the architecture, and the overall style.

The main structure is a south-facing 480 sq.m. villa with 8 bedrooms, traditional cotto floors throughout, and timber beamed ceilings.

Ground Floor

With commanding presence and hill country views, this stunning home greets you from a hilltop nestled amongst the endless greenery of the Italian countryside. You’re met with stone walls, outdoor staircases, and a breathtaking view of the land.

Step into a bright and open ground floor, featuring an open gourmet kitchen showcasing a splendid Tuscan marble sink overlooking the garden and a traditional raised stone fireplace.

Adjacent to the kitchen, a broad arch leads you into the spacious dining room which could sit eight people comfortably. You will be seduced by the high beamed ceilings and the quality of the materials – it feels joyful, family oriented and cozy.

This floor also features a large studio, providing the ideal space for your favourite projects while offering additional storage space and large work surfaces.

Yet more amenities enrich this floor, such as a cozy day area, 3 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, a utility room, and a technical room.

The crown jewel is the oversized living room, hosting arched French doors allowing for natural light to flood the interior, which provide ample opportunity to engage with the outdoor spaces. This area lends itself to intimate gatherings as well as being a formal room to welcome guests in, complemented by a panoramic patio with sweeping views over the vineyard.

First Floor

The first floor of this grand estate offers yet more pleasures. The night space features 5 bedrooms, 4 of which with adjacent ensuite bathrooms, and a splendid living room.

Stylish and timeless interiors make for a gracious and elegant atmosphere inside, while expansive views on the Tuscan countryside are what characterizes the majestic stone vaulted portico.

In a nod to traditional Tuscan charm, the stone portico provides vistas straight out of Renaissance paintings. It allows for shaded relief whenever you and your guests aren’t enjoying the sparkling pool or strolling amongst the vineyards.

The Winery Buildings

The compound has also served as a wine production business ever since the vineyards and annex structures have been established in 2003/2004.

For a total of 525 sq.m. this part of the estate comprises all central administrative and working buildings necessary for wine production and sale. Out of the 12,5 ha of land, 5 ha are constituted by vines. This estate allows for an overall production of 18 to 20 thousand bottles a year.

The winery is split on two floors with a part of it placed below ground – it houses every necessary process concerning wine making, bottling, and labelling.

The vines planted are extremely high quality, featuring Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot for a wine worldwide known as the Bordeaux of the Crete Senesi. Internationally praised by wine writers of the caliber of Robert Parker, you can expect nothing short of a wine that is among the best in Italy.

The Land

This estate is sited on 12,5 ha of panoramic land, about 5 ha of which are vineyards. The rest of it features lavender bushes and several other trees, surrounding the estate and its jaw-dropping stone pool. Intimately wrapped by a spacious stone sundeck, the long pool stretches through the greenery offering stunning views of the Tuscan landscape.

The land surrounding this estate also features two panoramic porches and a romantic courtyard. Enjoy summer evenings sitting under the stone porch, taking in the stunning Italian scenery. Picture long tables placed on the tiled courtyard for family get-togethers, or simply taking a dip in the shimmering panoramic pool after a long day.

The Location

This stunning estate is sited in Val d’Orcia, one of the most famous valleys in Tuscany. Its rows of cypresses, its food, and long history of art and culture make it what has been described by many as the most beautiful countryside in the world. In 2004 UNESCO deemed its landscape worthy of being a World Heritage Site.

This grand estate is accessible via a gravel road with majestic views of the Tuscan countryside. Carefully sited to maximize privacy, its location is quiet and panoramic. When you’re in the mood for a stroll in a charming Italian city, Siena is just 30 minutes away.
