Discovering Il Borro

“Il Borro is a timeless place”
Ferruccio Ferragamo

A tradition that must be preserved

Restoration of the ancient medieval hamlet was triggered by the wish to bring this place back to life and represents the perfect combination of the past, the present and the future. It is a place of a thousand souls which pass on traditions and history according to ethical principles calling for employment of local craftsmen and workers and emphasizing respect for the environment and making eco sustainable choices.

Since the year 1300, the area where Il Borro is located, in the Upper Valdarno, has been designated as an optimal area for the cultivation of vineyards. Thus, right from the very beginning Ferruccio Ferragamo with his son Salvatore have been committed to bringing this activity back to life. After years of research, studies and experimentation, Il Borro cellar now has 12 quality label, 10 of which are organic.
