Currently being run as a small boutique guest house, this elegant Tuscan villa recently fully restored and refurbished ticks a lot of boxes…panoramic views, vineyards, olive groves, two tier income stream, all of which located in a highly sought after location of Tuscany.
The estate consists of the main villa, an owner’s cottage, wine cellar with full production facilities, conference and event facilities, and a state-of-the-art luxury Spa. Total floor-space is approx. 2.040 m2 and there are a total of 28 – 30 bed spaces.
This property comes with the option of taking over an existing and successful business with a two-tier income stream: agriculture and hospitality.
The main villa houses 7 self-catering apartments (with either one or two double bedrooms). Recently restored and furnished to a high standard, the style and feel of the property is clean, bright and minimal. The use of traditional Tuscan materials such as natural stone and marble contrast well with the modern bathrooms and bespoke kitchens. The main villa has been dedicated to the guests of the resort who have a direct internal access to the state-of-the-art Spa located on the lower floor. There is also a breakfast lounge with bar, small reception area, managers offices and custodian apartment in the main villa.
The gardens and the various common areas including the pool measure approx. 4300 m2.
Located adjacent to the main villa, the cottage comprises a lounge, kitchen, two double bedrooms and two bathrooms. Stylishly restored to a high level, this secondary independent cottage offers either further accommodation for guests or a private area for the owners/managers of the resort.
The Land & Wine Cellars
The land that forms part of this Winery for sale spans approximately 22 Ha, and consists of vineyards, olive groves, arable land and forest. Thanks to the topography of the land, this wine estate benefits from an underground wine cellar that has been created following significant excavation. An underground tunnel connects the wine cellar (agricultural area) to the main villa. An access point for the tractors to arrive and deliver the grapes has been created in the hill-side to the rear. One of the main objectives of the restoration and creation of the wine cellar was to create an inter-connecting functional structure whilst minimizing the impact on the natural landscape.
The various labels of wine currently being produced have received multiple accolades and awards. The distribution and sales network is consolidated to a number of international buyers. Around 70% is exported to the US, China and North Europe.
The 22 ha of land is comprised as follows;
7 Ha producing Chianti and Chianti Riserva DOCG (Sangiovese + Merlot) which produce approximately 35,000 bottles of Chianti.
3 Ha producing IGT Tuscan which comprises the appellations Vermentino, Chardonnay, Malvasia Bianca and Merlot, which produces approximately 15.000 bottles of IGT white or Super Tuscan Merlot.
5 Ha of arable land which could be used for further vineyard growth.
The remainder of the property for sale is forest and meadows.
Situated in the Tuscan countryside 30 mins West of Florence in a picturesque area of vineyards and olive groves. The closest town to the property is less than a 10 min drive.
