In 1979, we discovered the Casina di Cornia farm. Lying on the south-western slopes of the Chianti hills lying between Florence and Siena, it gently looks over the Elsa Valley in the borough of Castellina in Chianti. Here, the beauty of the area and the quality of the land have acted as a backdrop to a centuries-old tradition of know-how connected with the land and its products. Already in 1100, a chapel dedicated to St Romolo is mentioned at Cornia in the parish of St Leonino, a sign that several families of sharecroppers were already active in the area.
Tasting our wines you will be able to visit visit Francine's showroom where her ceramics are exposed.
If you want to spend your holidays in this paradise of sweetly rolling hills that have been farmed for thousands of years, we have made two apartments in an old barn. Totally independent, featuring a kitchen, living room with fireplace, bedrooms and bathroom, they are available all year round. You will be in the midst of the countryside and can enjoy a splendid view from the terrace above the vines. It is an ideal area for walking or going on daring mountain bike excursions. You will also be near Siena (15 km), Florence (45 km), San Gimignano (...km) and generally no further than 2 hours away from all the other cultural centers of Tuscany.
