I Veroni is a historic winery located in the oldest territory of Chianti: Chianti Rufina. In the Middle Ages the vineyard and farmland of I Veroni formed part of the extensive feudal estates of the Conti Guidi family. At that time the Fattoria was dominated by a watch tower, now in ruins. The present farm buildings are a blend of centuries' old structures and contemporary additions. The first stone wine fermentation tank was built in 1809. Parts of this are still visible in the original cellars.

The name I Veroni is derived from the wide terraces surrounding the farm where many years ago tobacco leaf and grain from the Arno valley was dried. Today the farm spreads over 50 hectares and is close to the church of S.Martino a Quona in the Pontassieve hills. The vineyards cover 15 hectares and 20 hectares are planted with olives.

We produce a vast array of elegant wines from Sangiovese grapes. Our wines reflect traditional Tuscan viticulture since we produce IGT wines by uniting select indigenous and international grapes.
