Wandering Wine Maker: Villa Calcinaia
Is not everyday one gets to meet (and chat about wine of all things) with a Count. But that is exactly the noble title of our upcoming guest: Sebastiano Capponi, modern-day heir and owner of Villa Calcinaia. Calcinaia was the very old name given to this site located in central Tuscany where the winery was founded in 1524!
Villa Calcinaia is managed by the knowledgeable and charming Count Sebastiano Capponi. His family has been making wine from the Villa Calcinaia estate, located in the oldest and best part of Chianti, since the 1520s. By any measure, Count Capponi's passion for his ancestral land and the fine wines it yields is intense. He is dedicated to maintaining his proud family name and its continued association with fine wine. To this end, he is tireless. He has been referred to as the James Brown of Tuscany- "the hardest working man in Chianti." He maintains a brutal travel schedule, literally spending months on end touring the world to promote his wines. While at the same time, he manages to keep track of the business side of his estate, plays a very active role in the winemaking and vineyard management, and oversees other numerous estate-related projects.
Calcinaia also has not one but three different agriturismo: vacation villas in the Tuscan countryside specializing in food and wine. So whether you are a wine afficionado or looking for a perfect site to get married in Tuscany or spend a honeymoon, joins, meet Sebastiano and enjoy life the Tuscan way!
