In ancient times Mormoraia was a convent; nowadays it is an elegant farmhouse set in the heart of Tuscany on the Chianti hills, in a panoramic position of rare beauty in front of San Gimignano's medieval towers. The Mormoraia farm-holiday estate represents the ideal place to spend a delightful and relaxing stay in one of the most charming and interesting settings as far as history and art concerns. Guests are given hospitality in nice apartments and double rooms with private bathroom on a B&B basis.
The vineyards and olive groves surrounding the farmhouse produce high quality wines and extra-virgin olive oil, which are among the most valued and appreciated worldwide.
The wine and extra-virgin olive oil tastings, accompained by Tuscan culinary specialities, take place in the wine shop, where products are also on sale, or on the lovely terrace which offers a superb view of San Gimignano's medieval towers.
Mormoraia stretches out over 100 hectares, 30 of which are dedicated to the vine growing and 10 to the cultivation of the olive trees. The estate is set in the heart of Tuscany, on the green hills next to San Gimignano, in a panoramic position of rare beauty.
The farming of vineyards and olive groves is carried out with great respect for the territory and environment under the supervision of the owner, Mr. Giuseppe Passoni. Wine tastings take place in the wine shop or on the lovely terrace overlooking the estate's vineyards and olive groves, framed by the magnificent medieval towers of San Gimignano.
Wine making is carried out with the help of the latest vinification tecnology, such as computerized temperature control during must fermentation.
French oak barrels and barriques used for the aging process give an important contribution to the achievement of high quality standards and make Mormoraia's wines the most appreciated worldwide and featured in the most reliable guide books in the sector.
