Originally the 17th Century villa of poet Antonio Guadagnoli, The Baracchi estate is located on a beautiful slope just east of Cortona overlooking Valdichiana Valley. Riccardo Baracchi and his son Benedetto restored the property in hopes of continuing their family practice of grape growing and winemaking, a tradition that dates back to 1860. Currently the Baracchi estate covers 60 hectares of land, 22 of which are planted with vineyards. The charming Relais Il Falconiere, exquisite luxury hotel, spa, and Michelin rated restaurant, is nestled between the old groves and new vineyards.

“What makes us curious about the Baracchi family is that their commitment to perfection comes across in everything they do. Silvia, the family matriarch, is a Michelin rated chef whose exquisite restaurant Il Falconiere is nestled atop the Baracchi’s ancient lands. Riccardo, the family’s patriarch and founder of the winery, is a renowned hunter whose sportsmanship has made him a local hero. Their son and the head winemaker Benedetto has inherited his parent’s relentless passion for perfection; it is evident in his beautiful wines that are unique within the Tuscan region, and at the same time authentically Tuscan.”
