History and philosophy of Castello La Leccia

The Castello La Leccia winery is located in the famous Chianti Classico region, working to make organic, high-quality wines. The castle and estate were bought by Daddi’s in 1920, and after restoration, Francesco Daddi made the caste reach its past glorious level in 2012. Since 2018, it is run by the Sonderegger family, who continue making wines and practicing hospitality with great enthusiasm and dedication.

Organic winery and modern cellar

The vineyards spread across five best locations around the castle. The clayey soil and optimum exposure provide great conditions for viticulture. Organic farming is practiced to maintain ecological balance and preserve the vines. Effort is made to use renewable energy resources and stop the use of chemical fertilizers and similar substances. Sangiovese is the main grape, but they also grow Trebbiano, Syrah, and Malvasia Nera. All healthy grapes are brought to the cellar for vinification. Indigenous yeasts are used for fermentation at controlled temperatures. Depending on the vintages, the right blends are made, and ageing occurs in oak and wooden barrels.

World-class hospitality

Apart from Chianti Classico DOC and Toscana IGT wines, they even make high-quality olive oil. There is a boutique wine resort at the estate that can be used for accommodation and organizing events. All rooms are furnished beautifully and equipped with all comforts and features. The castle also has an exotic swimming pool that has panoramic views of San Gimignano and Siena hills. Experience organic wine tasting and serene natural beauty at Castello La Leccia.
