With a rich history as an ancient fortress and wine roots that extend back to the ninth century, Luiano is one of the most prestigious estates of the Upper Chianti Classico Region. Home to some of the most renowned families of Florence during the Middle Ages, the property has belonged to the Palombo family since 1959 when Alberto Palombo purchased the land.
Dedicated to Luiano’s winemaking traditions, Alberto focused on producing high-quality wine. After Alberto’s passing, his son Antonio -- who grew up at Luiano -- took the reins. Together with his children Alessandro and Felicia, Antonio has committed to preserving his father’s legacy while ushering in modern innovations.
Luiano’s vineyards have recently been redesigned and replanted by hand, echoing back to techniques that Alberto implemented when Antonio was young. The winery’s cellars, built during the Renaissance, are a true testament to the ancient tradition of winemaking at Luiano, while the recent renewal and restyling of the cellars illustrate the winery’s commitment to the future. Luiano continues to dedicate itself to quality, as evidenced by the winery’s investment in advanced winemaking techniques.
Luiano lies just 10 miles south of Florence and extends across approximately 70 acres. The estate is predominantly outdoors, overlooking the beautiful landscape of Chianti.
