Today, I am the owner of Il Cellese, a beautiful farmhouse in the hills of Chianti, but I want to go back a little in time and tell you how I got here. Born in Italy to an Italian couple that loved one of the most beautiful cities in Spain, Seville, I ended up living and growing up there. Once I turned 18, I traveled extensively, visiting many countries around the world in search of my future. My roots, however, called me back to Italy.
I ended up in Castellina in Chianti helping my aunt who was one of the first women to produce Chianti Classico wine in the area. So ever since I turned 20, I've been here learning how to work the fields and everything on soil and grapes necessary to produce excellent wines, such as the ones you will enjoy during your visit at Il Cellese.
