Marchesi Antinori

The Antinori family has been dedicated to wine production for more than six hundred years: ever since, in 1385, Giovanni di Piero Antinori became part of the Florentine Art of Vinattieri.

For over six hundred years, the Marquises Antinori have linked their name to excellence in the art of wine and the best patronage tradition. Two apparently very different areas, but which in reality have often proceeded in parallel: the Marquises Antinori have often entrusted art with the task of telling the values ​​and history of their family, whose coat of arms is also a valuable work artistic, which came out at the beginning of the 16th century from the Florentine workshop of the sculptor and ceramist Giovanni della Robbia. This dual passion is expressed through the Antinori Academy, in the context of classical art and tradition, and following the construction of the new Antinori winery in Chianti Classico also through the Antinori Art Project, aimed at contemporary art.
