Project Description

One of the highest farms in the Chianti Classico zone, La Petraia is located in the heart of Tuscany’s oldest wine region. The estate comprises 65 hectares including vineyards, olive and heirloom fruit trees, vegetable gardens and an ancient chestnut grove. We raise our own rabbits, ducks, geese, pigeons, quail, guinea hens and turkeys as well as sheep and rare breeds like the Cinta Senese pig and the Val D’Arno chicken. We produce varietal honeys including chestnut and acacia and organic essential oil from our lavender.

The property is also home to an Etruscan archeological site called Piazza di Siena. It is easy to see why the Etruscans chose to settle in this magical spot more than 25 centuries ago. The property affords breathtaking views of the famous Gallo Nero vineyards and of Siena more than 35 kilometers to the south as well as the sweeping Valley of the Arno River and the Casentino Mountains to the north.
