Fattoria Poggio Capponi- Winery’s Building Dating back to the 1400s during the Renaissance Florence
The wine farm at Fattoria Poggio Capponi dates back to the last years of the 1400s during the Renaissance Florence when the area was ruled by the Medici family and by Lorenzo the Magnificent, who both had a strong passion for arts and culture. During this time the Capponi family built the farm 25 km outside of Florence in the beautiful rolling hills overlooking Chianti.
