Luiano is an ancient fort, built in the late middle ages, that spans 40 hectares in the Chianti Classico appellation of Tuscany, Italy, just 10 miles south of Florence. Since it was erected, Luiano has belonged to several of the most important, noble families of Florence, renowned for its abilities to produce superb wine.
In 1959 Alberto Palombo, a Neapolitan textile merchant, and his wife Licia, were so enchanted by Luiano and its history that they abandoned the city and purchased the property to carry on its long standing tradition of vine growing and winemaking.
In 1996, Antonio, Alberto’s son, followed suit trading his career in banking for a life in the vineyards. He soon began to restore the vineyards and the cellar, establishing the property as a modern winery. In 2003, the third generation of the Palombo family joined the family business as well. Together with his children Alessandro and Felicia, Antonio has committed to preserving Luiano’s legacy while ushering in innovations.View Importer
