The municipality of Rufina is located in the Val di Sieve, in the province of Florence. It is a predominantly hilly area, where an excellent wine is produced. The countryside of the area is characterized by the variety of scenarios encountered. The suggestive geometries of the vine rows, often close to the rows of olive trees, sometimes interrupted by the golden wheat fields in a continuous repetition of hills that touch the woods of the mountain ridges, recalling alpine suggestions. A territory rich in ancient places of interest in the heart of Italian wine production.
