The Tenuta San Vito in Fior di Selva, a historic wine estate of the Tuscan wine world, has been producing DOC Chianti since 1960, and in 1985 obtained the area’s first official organic cultivation certification. The Tenuta San Vito is located in Montelupo Fiorentino, only 15 km from Florence, set in the green hills of Chianti and within the DOC zone of Chianti Colli Fiorentini.
The winery rises atop the hill of San Vito, surrounded by woods and graced by a small lake. Of our 126 hectares, 20 are planted to olive trees and 34 to premium grapes. Over the years, we have made many changes and innovations both in the vineyards and in the winemaking cellar. Numerous vineyards have been re-planted with the best clones of sangiovese and the best cultivars of merlot, cabernet, and chardonnay, in order to improve the complexity of our wines. Vine training systems have been adopted to ensure modern vineyard management practices. Our consulting oenologist, Attilio Pagli, who enjoys esteem in Italy and worldwide, is the guarantor of the quality of our wines. Our many innovations have given birth to a whole range of products; with them, we will be able to bring the traditions and philosophy of Azienda San Vito into fruitful harmony with the demands of the market and with the tastes of consumers.
On the estate, four ancient farmhouses have been
re-structured into agriturism flats, and an attractive restaurant
offers a wide range of the best dishes of rural Tuscan cooking.
We hope that you will find this information useful and that we can
host your visit to our wine estate, so that you can personally enjoy
