Poderi del Paradiso
Poderi del Paradiso, owned by the Cetti family since the 13th century, is an amphitheater of vineyards at the base of the medieval Tuscan town of San Gimignano, known for its skyscraper-like towers built by wealthy nobles during the Renaissance. Here the Cetti family farms about 30 hectares of vines, and with the help of renowned consulting winemaker (and San Gimignano native) Paolo Caciorgna, the wineery produces about 115 000 bottles of wine. There are also nearly 1300 olive trees on the territory of the estate which produce outstanding oil.
In the 1980s the Cettis budded much of their Vernaccia over to Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Chardonnay. Today they produce Vernaccia, a Chianti Colli Senesi, and gorgeous Bordelais blends of Sangiovese, Cabernet, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc.
The Cetti family also operates a gorgeous agriturismo on the property if you ever plan to travel to Tuscany.
