Our historic villa is immersed in the Chianti Classico area surrounded by hectares of vineyards and olive trees that spread as far as the eye can see on the first hill that you come across from Siena towards the Chianti Classico district. We are at Villa Cerna, 280 meters above sea level in the first historic estate of the Cecchi Family.
On this bounteous land, wine has always been cultivated over the centuries. Tradition has renewed the cultivation of vines from generation to generation, up to the present day. Today the estate has a vineyard park of about 80 hectares with plants of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Colorino Toscano.
A few steps from the ancient stone Villa that houses the Villa Cerna Foresteria Restaurant, the Wine Shop and the Bottega, is the winery and aging cellar of the Cecchi Family in the Chianti Classico area.
The Villa Cerna winery is active and can be visited thanks to our guided tours. The experience of the visit to the winery is an unmissable opportunity to discover the secrets of the world of wine directly from the places of production.
Being able to smell the fresh and fragrant air of the cellar from the typical aroma of the must is a sensory experience that is unparalleled. Observing the dedication to wine cultivation by the skilful work of the employees who diligently move heavy barrels and control the winemaking process is a journey into ancient tradition. The experience then turns into a real journey of taste ending in our Wine Shop with the tasting of the most prestigious wines produced by the Cecchi Family accompanied by a delicious tasting of cold cuts and bruschetta. The most demanding of palates will be able to indulge in the exclusive pleasure of combining the best tasting Tuscan cuisine in our refined Restaurant or a Light Lunch in our informal Wine Shop.
Individual or group visits are made every day from 10:00 to 18:00
