The photo shows our mum Renata, expecting Francesca, our dad Renato and Fabio on the day of his First Communion. It was 1970 when our father Renato, who always had a great passion for wine, had the lucky intuition to buy this property, in the heart of Chianti Classico, with its perfect position and exposure to grow Sangiovese.
The constant exposure to the sun inspired our father to call our winery Solatione.
It took two years to make this land suitable for growing vines. Back in those days there were no modern machinery to make the work easier.
The first harvest was in 1974. Family and friends were called to helps us out in reaching this new milestone. It was a great celebration for the whole family who would gather around the table for a well deserved meal at the end of the day.
Sadly in 1999 our dad passed away, but his passion and dedication for this work had been passed on to us children who, as a natural consequence took over the winery.
This photo shows us today: mum Renata, Francesca with her son Elia, Fabio and Elisabetta with their son Lorenzo.
We are all together committed to make Solatione “a small winery with a great wine”, a phrase that we consider our motto.
