In Gambassi Terme in the heart of Chianti, there is a farm unique in its kind, a jewel that has been handed down for three generations.
Tenuta Mercatili boasts eight hectares of vineyards including Sangiovese, Trebbiano, Vermentino and Malvasia and 1000 olive trees; all surrounded by a breathtaking view, in fact thanks to its position you can admire the splendid towers of San Gimignano.
The history of the estate has its roots in 1951, when grandfather Guerriero, after years of work as a farm worker, together with his wife Gina, decided to set up his own business.
At the time, the company had just over four hectares of land and represented the real Tuscan farmhouse, where wine, oil and Vinsanto were produced and cattle were raised.
Eternal debtor towards his grandparents for the passion that has been transmitted to him since he was a child, his nephew Alessio decides to follow their footsteps and pursues his studies qualifying himself as an agricultural and zootechnical expert. After having joined them in their last years on the estate, Alessio gets the reins of the farm and with the help of his father Fausto expands the estate to double its volume.
Appreciated for their genuineness, the labels of Tenuta Mercatili are currently six among wine, oil and more.
