Winemaking

The Santa Cristina winery was built from a project developed by Studio Hydea in Florence. This modern structure’s design was based on criteria of minimal environmental impact and maximum respect for the surrounding territory. The winery was named after Santa Cristina Red, a historic wine and symbol of the winery for over 70 years. The concept behind the project was to allow the grapes to be accompanied from the vineyards, through each phase of fermentation, aging, bottling, and packaging. State-of-the-art technology and attentive ongoing research for the highest quality strengthen and consolidate ancient winemaking traditions and love for the Tuscan territory.
