Antico Borgo La Torre

Address: Località la Torre, 172, 50066 Vaggio FI

1/15

Welcome to Antico Borgo La Torre, this is where we host all of our art retreats. A converted farmhouse and winery set in the Tuscan landscape, surrounded by vineyards. Located in the region of Chianti, just 25km (30 minutes by train) from Florence.

 

Originally a medieval tower, Antico Borgo La Torre dates back to the middle ages. Most likely part of the fotification of the nearby feudal Castle of Viesca, which was located in the hill north of the property. Only sporadic ruins of the Castle now remain, covered by a forest, but the medieval tower 'La Torre' still stands today as part of the recently renovated structure.

In later centuries, the farmhouse became one of the properties of the noble Medici family, whose descendants remain the present owners. Now an agriturismo, Antico Borgo La Torre produces it's own wine and olive oil. It is made up of 32 hectars of land, which include olive groves, vineyards, woodland, orchards and walnut trees.
