Fattoria Varramista is a wine producer with a century-old history and prestigious wine cellar, where the history of Florentine nobles and modern businessmen mingle.

Vines have been grown on the estate for centuries: back when Varramista belonged to the Capponi counts an excellent Sangiovese wine was already being made. But it was only in the 1990s at the wishes of Enrico Piaggio's nephew, Giovanni Alberto Agnelli, that a reconversion of the vineyards and cultivation system began under the guidance of Federico Staderini, the enologist who still looks after the project today. Syrah is the company's main vine together with other international vine species and the estate's historic Sangiovese.

A tour of these vineyards, converted in the 1990s to this new production project, is a unique experience: gentle hills planted with vines alternating with woody areas and sudden drops to the flat plains alternating the bright yellow of the sunflowers with luxuriant green expanses of the poplar woods. Visitors can see how the vines are grown and how important the soil composition is as well as the typical climate of this area: il terroir which makes the wine produced in the Fattoria Varramista unique.

Then it's the turn of the Varramista cellars: the Tinaia (vat cellar) refurbished in the '90s where our wines are made, and the barricaia ( barrique cellar) built at the same time as the Villa where the refining in wood barrels takes place, a characteristic of all the red wines made at the Fattoria Varramista.

The tour ends with a tasting, inside the comfortable Tastings room, of 3 wines made on the premises, accompanied by cold Tuscan meats and pecorino cheese, Tuscan extra virgin olive oil, fresh bread, almond biscuits and a spirit.

You can buy our wines, extra virgin olive oil, Marruchetone, grappa and nocino from our Enoteca.
