The town of Cortona is situated on a hill at 600 m s.m.l.e overlooking the Chiana valley with a breathtaking view of Lake Trasimeno and Mount Amiata. The tradition of grape growing and wine production in this land dates back to the Etruscan period. It is said that Pliny the Younger loved a white wine named “Etesiaca” produced in Cortona, and Paul III did great wine supplies produced by these vineyards.

The Basilica Cafaggio farmhouse will be pleased to welcome all wine lovers and all those who want to visit us to know our estate, visit our cellar and discover our wines

A trip to over 600 years of history

The origins of the Cafaggio estate in the Middle Ages. The first document attesting the presence of Cafaggio is dated 1408, as is shown by a precious parchment preserved in the company’s archives. Then the estate was called “Cahago”, which means enclosed field or cultivated field. The documents indicate that at the end of the 15th century the estate was owned by the Benedictine monks in Siena, before passing into the hands of various owners, including the famous Florentine family, the Niccolini. In modern times the property was sold to the Florentine hospital of Santa Maria Nuova and the documents attest that the farm was already producing a wide variety of foodstuffs, including wine and oil. Thus comes to the 19th century, Cafaggio passed to the Boddi family. At the end of the 1960s the estate was purchased by the Farkas family, who decided not only to restore the cellars but also to re-plant vineyards and olive trees. From 2014 the company is in the availability of ISA S.p.A. (Istituto Atesino di Sviluppo S.p.A.) holding company based in Trento.
