Pietra del Cabreo reflects the Folonari family’s great love for Tuscany, its land, its grapes and the wines produced from its vineyards and that for centuries have been at the heart of our family business. The Pietra is at the centre of one of Italy’s most beautiful regions, an area of pristine landscapes dotted by ancient farmhouses, vineyards and olive groves.
For Ambrogio, head of the family, his son Giovanni, his wife Giovanna and their daughters Francesca and Angelica, loving Chianti also means sharing and allowing others to enjoy this beauty. With this in mind, in 2012 the Folonari started restoring the Estates’ properties and their surrounding land, diversifying into ‘oeno-hospitality’ as a complement to the wine business. The first step was the restoration of Villa Nozzole followed by Borgo del Cabreo, which opened in 2017 and now Pietra del Cabreo which, after two years of intensive work, has opened in May 2021. Giovanna, whose taste and dedication have inspired and directed the project, has carefully thought through every detail of this new Relais de Charme. Managing the Pietra, is the responsibility of Francesca, who combines passion for hospitality with international flair and management experience from her years working in New York, Frankfurt and London. Supporting her is a team of experienced professionals who share the same vision, making sure that every guest has a unique, unforgettable holiday.
