About the Winery
The wines from the Cantine Leonardo da Vinci are inspired by one of the greatest artists of all time, Leonardo da Vinci. The world knows him as a great painter, but he was also an expert on wine and winemaking techniques. In the year 1961, around 30 local winegrowers in the small Vinci town of Italy, got together to establish the Cantine Leonardo da Vinci. Today, this cooperative business has grown tremendously and comprises of close to 200 winegrowers.
Villa Di Vinci, an ancient village in Tuscany dates back to as early as 1152. This is the place that is the prime area where the grapes from this wine brand are grown. These vineyards are located in a fertile region that spreads across 75 hectares. Currently, this is one of the popular wine-tourism spots in Italy. You can come here and walk through the beautiful forests and vineyards that Leonardo once walked along.
