Antico Borgo Chianti Classico is a well established working winery in Chianti with easy access to Florence. A winery made up of approximately 100 hectares of land of which 17 hectares of vineyards are DOCG, 3 hectares of IGT, and approximately another 20 hectares of cultivated olive groves.
The borgo is comprised of one main villa that was constructed in the early 1800's and several other buildings that support the business (wine, oil production, rental apartments).
This section consists of approximately 2500 sq m of which 1800 sq m are living spaces. This is divided between the main villa that dates back to the 1800's, a second building with 8 apartments, and two other structures that require a bit of renovation. Currently, both the villa and apartments are rented out as short term vacation rentals. The 8 apartments are of various sizes (1-3 bedrooms each).
