The Antinori family has been involved in the production of wine for over six centuries, through twenty six generations. Antinori nel Chianto Classico was opened in 2013 and served to relocate the company headquarters from its Renaissance palazzo in Florence to the hillside of Bargino, literally, the winery is folded into the hillside resembling a pair of rust-colored slashes in newly planted vineyards. “The idea was to bring the heart of the company back to the countryside where the wine is produced,” says Antinori. Greve in Chianti is a bucolic town dating back to the time of the Etruscans, and is the principal town in the Chianti wine district. At the heart of the city is the triangular piazza where a market has been running more or less continuously for centuries serving the nearby castle communities and hamlets.
