The state-of-the-art winery which was built in 1997 is named after a 19th century historic windmill located on the property across from the cantina. However, the viticultural history of the property is much older: the vineyards at Il Molino di Grace have been fruitful for over 350 years. The winery produces approximately 250,000 bottles of Chianti Classico, Riserva, Gran Selezione and Super Tuscan wines annually.
Since its' inception, Il Molino di Grace has made every effort to be a sustainable, bio-dynamic winery. We plow each vineyard only once every three years to the most shallow depths between the rows (maximum of 45 cm.) We use the cuttings from the vines to fuel the heating and air conditioning in the winery, thus eliminating the use of gas. All of the fertilizer used in the vineyards is organic, the yeast is indiginous, and the grapes are harvested and picked by hand only. Farming sustainably is a critical part of everything we do, and are proud to have been designated an Organic ('Biologico') since 2010.
Tuscan Terroir. Chianti Soul.
Il Molino di Grace is, simply, the taste of Tuscany. Located in the heart of the Chianti region, Il Molino di Grace is an alluring and authentic capture of Chianti Classico soil, grapes, climate, tradition and innovation. The winery of Il Molino di Grace – the ‘windmill of grace’ – stands upon 30 hectares of vineyards that have been producing traditional Chianti Classico wines for over 350 years, and is complete with an historic 19th century windmill and world-class sculptures.
The Frank Grace family is a passionate caretaker of this fabled tradition of making critically acclaimed Tuscan wines that celebrate the idyllic marriage of Tuscan terroir and Sangiovese grapes.
