"Arciduca"Chianti Colli SenesiDOCG2017
The Cappellasantandrea farm was bought by Giovanni Leoncini in the 1950s. The cellar was built in the 1990s. In those years the ancient sharecropping system was dying out and farms were being sold or transformed into farms. It was when Giovanni and his daughter Antonella decided to implement the production and build a new cellar.
Today his niece Flavia and her husband Francesco manage the farm with love and wisdom. Together they made the decision to convert the production to organic farming and even reintroduced farm animals, thus stimulating the vitality of the land thanks to closed-cycle fertilization. The farm in some respects seems to have gone back in time to when it was simply a sharecropping farm.
Cappellasantandrea’s wines are today among the most popular in the area, precisely because the company has been able to combine a certain innovation with respect for tradition.
Total area planted with vines: 7,5 hectares
Average annual production of the winery: 40.000 bottles

"Terre di Corzano"Chianti Colli FiorentiniDOCG2018
Corzano e Paterno
The farm Corzano and Paterno extends over two hundred hectares of land of which only eighteen are planted with vines. The rest is divided into olive groves, pastures and natural oak forests.
The property consists of two separate farmhouse complexes, called Corzano and Paterno, which were purchased by the Swiss architect Wndelin Gelpke between 1971 and 1976 by the descendants of the Niccolini, a noble Florentine family. Forced to sell the estate, they asked the family friend Gelpke for advice, who offered to buy it himself to protect it from the advent of possible speculators. The architect undertook to leave the structures intact and so he did. The complexes were in fact restructured but in a respectful way. After that Gelpke moved there with several members of his family. Everyone was able to assume their role within the farm which today produces wines, olive oil and pecorino cheeses (sheep milk) of the highest quality.
Today the production of Corzano and Paterno is internationally recognized. In fact, many of the best restaurants in Europe serve the farm's products on their tables.
Total area planted with vines: 18 hectares / 45 acres
Average annual production of the winery: 80.000 bottles
