|The Badia di Morrona is located in the Pisan hills (Colline Pisane) between Pisa and Florence, and is one of the four badie or monasteries founded by the count of Fucecchio. The monastery dates back to the 11th century when it was run by Benedictine monks. It is a large estate dedicated to both farming (olive oil) and viticulture. The estate represents the perfect marriage between tradition and modern technology. The current owners have recently completed building a new winery. Not only are Chianti DOCG vines grown, but Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Shiraz, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc are cultivated as well. Though the estate is relatively large, all grapes are harvested by hand.|
Note: The winery has a big solar implant that allows them to produce green energy and to be self sufficient. The wines are vegan.
