THE ABBEY OF “SAN LORENZO A COLTIBUONO” (Gaiole in Chianti, Siena) was founded in 1049 by the family Firidolfi and was ceded to the monks Vallombrosiani in 1115.
In 1810, a royal decree decided the expulsion of the monks and the abbey was sold and later became a farm.
The Winery Badia a Coltibuono has a renowned century-old business founded by their monks in the thirteenth century.
The cellars are located below the cloister of the abbey and produce an excellent wine with an unmistakable taste.
