La Mormoraia- Winery Situated in front of the Ancient Towers, in the heart of Tuscany
Between Siena and Florence, in the heart of Tuscany, among the imposing Chianti Hills, there exists a splendid structure, known as La Mormoraia. The winery is a perfect example of beauty, situated in front of the ancient towers, and covered by exquisite vineyards and olive groves.
The story of this great winery started in 1980 when Pino Passoni and Franca acquired La Mormoraia, which they later renovated it into an estate. The couple restored the vineyards, with the intention of producing quality wines and that dream came true in 1995 after the construction of a farmhouse and a cellar.
With the continuous expansion of the vineyards and the introduction of modern equipment in the cellar, the winery today delivers top-quality red, white, and rose wines, under famous DOCG and IGT labels of Gimignano and Chianti.
Witness the Beauty of Mother Nature
In the farming lands, you can witness the live beauty of Mother Nature, where vine rows and olive plantation add beauty to the environment. The owner grows four important grape varieties, including Vernaccia di San Gimignano, Sangiovese, Syrah, and Merlot. These grapes are cultivated organically and picked using manual harvesting techniques. For wines, the owner has a special place for ageing and refining of wines in big French oak barrels and barriques.
Discover a Perfect Vacation Spot
In 2012, Alessandro, the son of Pino and Franca, took over the winery, turning it into a perfect vacation spot by converting the farmhouse into B&B rooms. He installed various modern amenities in the apartment, such as a sauna and a steam bath. Alessandro also built a restaurant where tourists from all over the world can taste the traditional wines of Tuscany.
