So finally I’m in Toscana! One of the most important wine region in Italy! I came only for 2 days so this time I’ll visit only one winery! (next time I’ll come not less then for one week :))
Antinori name is one of the most important in Italian wine business! The story of their family began in XIV century and they managed to bring their experience through 26 generation!
In 2012 they opened new winery! It took 7 years to build this Cantina and now it unites wine-cellar, museum, restaurant and even cinema where you can watch movies about wine production and about history of Antinori family!
Nuova Cantina Antinori nella Chianti Classico this is the real Italian name of this new winery! And it look like a space shuttle that were lost in the hills of Toscana and now almost dissolve in the vineyards! Degustation bar and shop where you can buy all the Antinori wines will be the great end of this trip! Must try is Tignanello and Solaia 🙂
Even if you knew nothing about wine before, this cantina you’ll leave with the taste and history knowledge 🙂
So here is one more interesting thing that I found out in Toscana! Do you know why roses are frequently planted at the perimeter of vineyards?! – The thing is that the roses are super similar to the grapes and early detection of disease on the roses alerted winemakers to take the necessary precaution to protect vines!
