Villa Artimino is truly a historical site. There is a rich history on this property dating back to the Renaissance period, when ancients such as Galileo & da Vinci once visited. And it is here that Italy’s 1st wine was produced under the DOC rules (which was Carmignano, the answer to a wine-geeky trivia question!) back in 1716. The farm covers 732 hectares total, making it one of Tuscany’s largest fattorias; 84 of those hectares are planted to vines including local, traditional varietals as well as international varietals. Although VA is heavily steeped in tradition, state-of-the-art winemaking machinery & techniques are applied here.
