Borgo del Cabreo is born of a great passion of the Folonari family: the passion for Tuscany, its land and the wines it produces and which, for over a century now, are at the heart of the family’s business. This is a passion that extends beyond the wines to the traditions and history of this land, of which the farmhouses that dot the pristine landscapes are a testimony.
For Ambrogio, head of the family, his son Giovanni, his wife Giovanna and their daughters Francesca and Angelica, loving Chianti also means ‘giving back’ and allowing others to share in its beauty. From this belief came the idea, in 2012, to start restoring the Estates’ ancient properties and their surrounding land, diversifying into ‘eno-hospitality’ as a complement to the wine business. The first one to be restored was Villa Nozzole in 2012, followed by Borgo del Cabreo, which opened in 2017. Giovanna has inspired and directed its restoration and looked after every detail with exquisite taste and immense dedication. Francesca, who lived and worked in New York, Frankfurt and London, and combines the passion for hospitality with international flair and management experience, now runs Borgo del Cabreo. Supporting her is a team of experienced professionals who share the same vision of hospitality, making sure that every guest has a unique, unforgettable holiday.
