Overview

The Baracchi winery is ideally positioned on the Cortonese hillside and adjoins the Relais. Riccardo Baracchi strongly desired to continue the family tradition of growing grapes and producing wine since 1860 giving it now a modern character and great quality with renowned wine maker, Stefano Chioccioli. Trebbiano are the grapes that give life to this wine. All operations in the vineyard are carried out by hand with the utmost attention so that each of the 6,500 vines per hectare will produce only a few bunches of grapes, each with the full expression of the plant. A tribute to the land of Cortona and to the joy of drinking well.
