Social Programme

The medieval village of Castello di Albola rises on top of the splendid Chianti hills, in an incomparable place for the charm of history, for the suggestions of art and for the unique and unsurpassed agro-landscape context. Belonging to the noblest Tuscan families, from the Acciaioli to the Samminiati, from the Pazzi to the Ginori Conti, since 1979 it has been owned by the Zonin family who have dedicated their best care to it for forty years. The first commitment on the part of the family was to bring the vineyards to a high quality production level, and then proceed with the arrangement of the farmhouses and the beautiful manor house which has a sixteenth-century plan, but preserves traces of the medieval castle in the two massive towers.

Together with the recovery and restoration of the villa and the village, the rural buildings that are now used for accommodation have also been restored, and the new cellar has been built, perfectly harmonized with the surrounding landscape. The Zonin family has also worked hard to expand both the vineyards and the farm which today covers 900 hectares, of which over 110 are planted with vines and where over 4000 olive trees stand out.

The Castello di Albola is also a place of delight for those who want to get in touch with a unique environment like that of the Chianti Classico, for those who want to live in history, for those who want to taste the great wines of this renowned estate while savoring the charm of the Tuscan territory.


The village of Villa Barberino was the subject of a long restoration by the Boni family which brought it back to its lost charm since the end of the nineteenth century. The resort has a restaurant, swimming pool, solarium, tennis court, Italian gardens, forest, meeting room, rooms and apartments finely restored with period furniture and antiques.
