Over 150 years of historyWhen love for the land and nature moves everything. The bond of the Spalletti Trivelli Counts (family originally from Reggio Emilia, where she had come from distant Switzerland in the mid 1600s) with Tuscany, began about 130 years ago, a few decades after the unification of Italy, with the purchase of 650 hectares of land north-east of Florence, in a small corner of paradise with breathtaking views over the Val di Sieve.
On these hills the cultivation of vines and olives will become increasingly important and the many farmhouses scattered throughout the property will become, renovated about a century later, the current Country Wine Estate Colognole .
In all these years the Conti Spalletti Trivelli family has never abandoned their love for this land, dedicating themselves with passion, for five generations, to the enhancement of wine and extra virgin olive oil together with a hospitality project that in the last 30 years has assumed an important dimension and of great territorial value.
