Torre di Grignano

torre grignano location2

The foundations of Torre di Grignano are Roman. However those were destroyed in the 12th century and the present buildings date from the 14th century. The position of the Torre was strategically important as it has a view over one of the few bridges of the river Pesa, the border between the province of Florence and the province of Siena. As a result of the many battles between the Florentines and the Sienese the ownership of the Torre changed hands regularly between those two feuding parties. More recently it was a farm till the previous owner, the British author, Raymond Flower bought the castle in 1964. The present occupants have owned the Torre di Grignano since 1997.


Castello di Volpaia

Volpaia is a small fortified village in Tuscany, Italy, referred to as a 'castello' in Italian - Castello di Volpaia. Its main claim to historical fame is as the home town of the della Volpaia family of clock and instrument makers. Volpaia retains a great deal of its original architecture and has been attractively restored. It is well worth a visit for those interested in the traditional architecture of early Tuscany.

Pieve Sant'Appiano


The earliest records of the church at Sant'Appiano date back to the 10th century, situated in the area around Barberino Val d'Elsa. The beautiful church itself is flanked by the impressive architectural remains of the baptistry, creating a stunning visual entrance to the chapel. The church itself, built in early Romanesque times with a nave and two aisles with apses, a raised altar and crypt below, now looks like the result of a stratification of many architectural transformations. The original part of the church can still be picked out in the left aisle, cut through by five crossings, four of which have set-back arches that rest on solid square pilasters.

Castello della Paneretta


The Paneretta castle is situated in the Chianti Classico area on the western slopes of the dominating hills of the Elsa valley, looking towards San Gimignano. It was built around an ancient sighting tower. The morning after the battle from Montaperti, the “Ghibellini” ordered to leave the castle of Cepparello in 1260. This place was an important suburb and fortress of this area. So the sighting tower becomes bigger and reaches its importance. The first owners of the castle were the family Vettori, the last heir, Maddalena, brought it as dowry to her wedding with Ludovico Capponi in 1577. The couple restored the castle completely and commissioned Bernardino Poccetti, important manner painter, to fresco the loggia of the court. In this era the Paneretta became a place of passing by for painters and poets, one of those, Gerolamo Muzio, dedicated a poem to the castle and remained here until his death. Also the production of wine is documented from 1596 on. In 1696, Cassandra Capponi brought the castle an important collection of codex’s parchments and books into her marriage with the Marchese Carlo Riccardi Strozzi. This collection formed the nucleus of the Riccardian library in Florence. The Strozzi family remained owner of the castle until 1984, in this year, the family Albisetti took over. With its 309 hectares (majority wood) the Paneretta is one of the biggest farms of the area, producing 900 hectolitres of wine from 26 hectares of vineyards.
