Tuscan Farmhouse Renovation, first in a series of posts @BrunelloMaker

Today, winemaker and wine blogger Alessandro Bindocci — winemaker at Tenuta Il Poggione in Montalcino where Mazzoni Toscana Rosso is made — blogs about the winery’s restoration of Tuscan farmhouses.

In the now distant 1956, owners and founders of the Tenuta Il Poggione, the Franceschi family, constructed brand new farm houses to give work to families and farmers who were without work or a home. One of these was the “podere” called “I Cancellini”, the “little gates”. Last week we have completed the phase of its restaurant and here live two families of our workers.

Tomorrow we will post modern-day photos of the “before” and the “after” of the restauration.
