Poggio Capponi Poggio Capponi

Poggio Capponi | Toskana



The first records of the Fattoria Poggio Capponi date back to the late 14th century against the backdrop of Florence during the Renaissance, ruled by the Medici family and Lorenzo the Magnificent, who gave an extraordinary boost to the art and culture of the time. These were the years when the Florentine capital hosted the workshops of great artists such as Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and Sandro Botticelli.

It was during this period that the Capponi family, one of the most influential in Florence, built the Fattoria about 25 kilometers from Florence in a hilly area overlooking the gentle slopes of Chianti, hence the name Poggio Capponi. The estate has two beautiful sides: it is suitable both for agriculture and for vacations. The cultivation of vines, olive trees and wheat developed. And it was here that the farmers settled, who for generations continued to work in the fields.

Still at the end of the 18th century we find traces of the farm in a document (the Cabreo) that lists the properties and all the credits of the Marchesi Capponi. Finally, in the last century, the productive activities of the territory asserted themselves and continue intensely until today. Thus, for more than five hundred years, Fattoria Poggio Capponi has looked out from the top of its promontory over the hills, woods, vineyards and olive groves, offering one of the most beautiful views in the region. - Gerardo [TS08/22]

"The Fattoria Poggio Capponi has been around since the 15th century. It is set in a picturesque landscape of cypresses and cornfields - so beautiful that the Taviani brothers once chose it as the backdrop for their film 'The Night of San Lorenzo'." - Gambero Rosso
