Villa Trasqua Description
The Villa Trasqua Estate, a gorgeous spot in Tuscany, extends over 120 hectare of land of which 56 are set aside for the production of wine from which we produce Chianti Classico, Chianti Classico Riserva and 2 IGT wines (one alicante bouschet-sangiovese blend and one super Tuscan cabernet-sauvignon and sangiovese grapes). Besides this we produce Chianti Classico Grappa and olive oil. The winery has been around since many years but was purchased and re-structured a couple of years back by a Dutch industrial who felt in love the first time he arrived on the Villa Trasqua Estate. A lot of investments have been done by this new owner (who’s passion is wine) and his family, Mr Hans Hulsbergen, outside in the vineyards but also inside in the cellar. This is only the beginning of a very interesting story of a winery, a small paradise hard to reach, in the hart of Tuscany, which will be mentioned a lot in the next coming years.
