A Story of Tuscan Heritage and Legacy

The Antinori family has been committed to the art of winemaking for over six centuries, since the year 1385 when Giovanni di Piero Antinori became a member of the Arte Fiorentina dei Vinattieri, the Florentine Winemakers’ Guild.

As the 25th generation of the family, Marchese Piero Antinori has spent his lifetime synthesizing the collective wisdom of his forebears and applying it to the modern era. In the 1970s, he fostered a new beginning for his family’s Tuscan wine business, introducing modern winemaking techniques as well as two new non-traditional red wine blends—Tignanello and Solaia. These groundbreaking wines introduced the new category known as ‘Super Tuscan’ and represented a Renaissance for all Italian wines, as his passion and vision inspired his fellow vintners of the region to join him in the pursuit of exceptional wines.

Today, in a first within the family line, the Marchese has passed the stewardship of the company to his three daughters, Albiera, Allegra, and Alessia. Together the 25th, 26th and 27th generations of this family continue the pursuit of excellence and innovation in all their endeavors, guided by those who came before.
