i met the marchese Piero Antinori at a wine tasting event, and he told me about his family story past and present.  his family, is a wine making family whose roots can be traced to the late 1300’s.  i was excited when the marchese extended a visit to their vineyard, but many years passed until i finally made the visit.  the delayed visit was rewarding though, as i visited their new ‘cantina’ headquarters.  marchese piero antinori posseses that rare renaissance spirit, and living up to his family’s history, he succeeded to build the Marchesi Antinori headquarters.  the Marchesi Antinori headquarters, is a structure that took 10 years to built, at the cost of over 100 million euros.  in italy, not far from fkorence, in bargino, architecture and landscape embrace in complete harmony amidst the chianti hills.  this modern, functional facility that serves as a vineyard, offices, shop, museum, and restaurant, is a masterpiece in the ancient chianti hills.  bravo piero! these creations are just the luvFIND for thebestdress up now!

  3. ciao! thanks so much 🙂 in the usa, and specially in california, most wineries are ‘new’, large, and state of the art, and although some are ver ‘disney’ like, i have visited some spectacular structures. while in europe, the structures are on a smaller scale, so it was an unexpected surprise to find the marchesi antinori winery to be on this scale. i have found shabby structures with exquisite wines so this fact is not an indication of the quality of the wine. what i found most interesting, was how the marchesi antinori managed to build a structure that was not a block of cement and how well it conformed to the landscape. form followed function splendidly. by the way, biking in tuscany is a treat.
