History of Marchesi Antinori
The Antinori family has been involved in the production of wine for over twenty six generations. Over these years, they have always maintained an unaltered, fundamental respect for tradition and for the territory in which they have operated. Tradition, passion and intuition have been the three driving principles which have led the Antinori name to become a leader in Italian wine.
