ABOUT IL BORRO:
The Ferragamo family began restoration of Il Borro shortly after acquiring the medieval Tuscan estate in 1993. Since then, Salvatore Ferragamo has restored Il Borro’s historic detail and brought the estate back to life in a new era. In 1996, the vineyards were replanted by Salvatore and Ferruccio Ferragamo and today, a tour of the Il Borro Cellars is a journey to the heart of Tuscan wine-making tradition. Il Borro boasts one of the oldest cellars in Italy where the first ever Chianti wine was produced and the magic of winemaking continues with passion and commitment.
