Poggio al Sole

DESCRIPTION

Poggio al Sole lies in the very heart of Tuscany, in the glorious countryside between Florence and Siena, between the towns of Tavarnelle Val di Pesa and Greve in Chianti. Documents in the archives of the ancient abbey of Badia a Passignano nearby testify to the claim that wine and wine oil were produced on this estate as early as the 12th century.

 The grape growing and wine making tradition of the Davaz family goes back several years. With the loving care of the owners and nature’s blessing the great wines of Poggio al Sole are born. The modern equipment and a constant temperature in the wine cellars ensure that the most scrupulous care and attention can be given to the grapes during the journey of wine making.
