“When the opportunity arose to create an organization strictly limited to family businesses operating in famous wine producing regions and creating fine wines, we were enthusiastic. The possibility of being able to exchange ideas with other producers and from a family business point of view seemed for us great importance”
A HISTORY SINCE 1385 AND A “DOUBLE SPIRIT” PHILOSOPHY
TRADITION AND INNOVATION
In 1385, the Antinori family became part of the wine business when Giovanni di Piero Antinori joined the Florentine Vintner’s Guild. Since 1966, Marchese Piero Antinori, son of Marchese Niccolò, directs the company with his daughters, Albiera, Allegra and Alessia, also playing an active role.
For more than 26 generations now, Antinori’s philosophy is based on the combination of both tradition and innovation: to preserve Italy’s enological traditions and to experiment innovation in winemaking, giving each wine tester the pleasure of discovering a unique alliance.
Each of Antinori’s vineyards and estates has its own individual character, its own history and its own universe perceived and discovered in the tasting of each of their fine wines.
Antinori’s vineyards for red wine are mostly located in Tuscany, in the area of Chianti Classico where it owns a total of 700 hectares divided between Tignanello, Pèppoli, Badia a Passignano, Antinori Chianti Classico winery and Sansano.
White wines are produced in Umbria in the Orvieto Classico region, at Castello della Sala estate, and in Tuscany at Monteloro estate.
Other red wine comes from the Montepulciano, Bolgheri, Montalcino, Castiglione della Pescaia and Sovana areas.
Besides Tuscany and Umbria, Antinori is also present in Lombardy, Piedmont, Apulia, California, Washington State, Hungary and Malta where it produces both red and white wines.
