In 1877 two cousins, Ilario and Leopoldo Ruffino, decided to develop their passion for winemaking by establishing a small winery near Florence, in a land that already had a centuries-old tradition of grapes cultivation for wine.
From that year on, the cousins experiment became a business, the family bought other estates in Tuscany and their excellent wines started to be appreciated in many parts of Italy.
Today the Ruffino reputation continues to spread not only in Italy but worldwide. More than 135 years after its founding, Ruffino has established itself as a leader in Chianti, renowed for consistency and quality of their wines.
Their philosophy is based on the certainty that the best wines come from the best vineyards, so they choose top vineyard sites and they try to respect the natural cycle of grapes ripening and wine making, applying non-interventionist practices.
The result they obtain is a very high quality product: red, white and sparkling wines. Choosing this experience, you will have the chance not only to try their wine together with their extra virgin olive oil and traditional food, but also to see the process of wine making from the vineyard to the bottle, always guided by wine experts of Ruffno company.
