29th of May 2011 - CANTINE APERTE
Vignamaggio is a small Renaissance gem, its setting still very similar to the original. The core of the villa dates back to the XIV century, but its current look is the one given at the end of the XVI century by the Gherardi family who had purchased it from the Gherardinis. A girl was born here in 1479 to a member of the family, the famous Mona Lisa whose portrait was subsequently painted by Leonardo da Vinci. Inside the Renaissance Villa, listed in the "Historical Building of Italy" there are double bedrooms and romantic suites with antique furniture and bed linen made exclusively for Vignamaggio.
