Live the italian style and taste an exquisite wine during your visit at Villa Cusona.
A tour in the ancient cellars of Tenuta in Villa Cusona, it is like a time capsule. The Fattoria Guicciardini building complex rose in the second half of the 15th century, after the second surrounding-walls of the town were built in 1260, to incorporate the Church and the convent of St. Augustine which had gained a great importance for the local community. The building is located between the St. Augustin square and the town-walls perimeter. From the 13th century onwards, the building underwent many transformations and from 1700 to the 1950s it was gradually transformed into a farm, property of the Strozzi family. In 1877, it was brought as a dowry to the Guicciardini family, when Princess Luisa Strozzi married Count Francesco Guicciardini, already proprietor of the Cusona farm. At that time, the estate was rather large with its fifteen holdings in the surroundings of San Gimignano and many hectares of woodland. You will be impressed with the interesting story about his family, the visit of the musesum and of the cellars. Enjoy the wine tasting in the “VIP” lounge where you will taste incredible refined wines.
