Although the Antinori family has been producing wines since 1300, their winery boasts of modernity. Designed by famous Italian architect Marco Casamonti, the architecture is based mainly on the Antinori family’s original concept.
After a seven-year construction, Antinori nel Chianti Classico opened in 2012. Locally-sourced materials were used for the construction, such as glass, wood, and terracotta, meaning that the modern building blends well into the stunning landscape.
Run by Albiera Antinori along with her two sisters Alessia and Allegra, the winery also houses much of the Antinori family’s extensive art collections. Aside from preserving and restoring historical works of art, the family has also commissioned new ones and hosted various exhibitions and seminars that celebrate all forms of art reflecting the Tuscan culture.
Seemingly built into a vast landscape just outside of Florence, the Antinori nel Chianti Classico winery features tasting rooms, wine bars and restaurants, museums, and shops. Tours include wine tasting and a glimpse into the history of the winery and the Antinori family.
