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.
The tour starts in 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.
