Last week, in Mendoza, Argentina, the Antinori nel Chianti Classico winery was awarded first place in the World’s Best Vineyards. The awards, held for the first time in 2019, is an international ranking that honours the most remarkable wine tourism destinations, voted for by over 500 leading wine and tourism experts. Having been awarded 18th, 9th and 6th place in previous years, the Antinori team along with their international champions are delighted to see this team of experts decide it worthy of being 2022’s number one spot.
This is an extraordinary international recognition for Antinori as the winery hits its 10th anniversary, having first opened to the public in October 2012.
“As I was involved in the winery’s construction from the very beginning, Antinori nel Chianti Classico holds a very special place in my heart” – says Albiera Antinori, President of Marchesi Antinori – “this prestigious award is not only an honour for my family and our entire company but represents important international recognition for Italian wine tourism as a whole. The movement advocating wine tourism has grown rapidly in recent years and in Italy we have a multitude of top-class destinations.”
Huge congratulations to the team!
