Family - Villa il Pozzo

Tuscany Wine Estate

Gori Family

Tenuta Villa il Pozzo is a beautiful estate in Tuscany, in the heart of Chianti, composed of an 18th century manor house next to an imposing medieval watchtower and about 60 hectares of land.

Tenuta Villa il Pozzo became part of the history of the Gori family in 1966, when it was purchased by Nello Gori. Always a passionate and refined wine connoisseur, Nello Gori began his career as a mediator between local producers and the best wineries in Tuscany and, with the precious support of his wife Tina and son Alessandro, during the ’70s he developed an international business, cultivating, winemaking and exporting large quantities of Chianti and Tuscan red wines to the United States of America.

At the end of the ’90s the villa was renovated by his three sons Paola, Giuliana and Alessandro and began the accommodation business. Tenuta Villa il Pozzo became the favourite destination for honeymoons and honeymoons of newlyweds coming from all over the world and where dream weddings are celebrated. Today it is one of the most sought after estates by the world’s most renowned wedding planners for weddings in Tuscany and Chianti.

In the meantime the two youngest grandchildren Gianni and Duccio, Alessandro’s sons, after a period of training in the United States of America and in particular in the “Californian Tuscany” Napa Valley, at the beginning of the 2000’s expanded their cultivation using vines, production processes and winemaking of the highest quality, obtaining high level awards. Gianni and Duccio also began the first tastings of their fine Chianti wines and IGT Tuscan red wines.

In 2019, the other five grandchildren of Nello and Tina decide to open a new cycle and, with an extraordinary operation of corporate renewal, relaunch the family business, projecting it into the future.

Tenuta Villa il Pozzo is therefore in the hands of the seven grandchildren who, under the careful supervision of Paola, Giuliana and Alessandro, will guard and hand down to future generations the tradition and passion of Nello and Tina.


Over four hundred years in the heart of Chianti: a future to discover.

Tenuta il Pozzo appears for the first time in the historical notarial registers of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany on March 4, 1590, when the Florentine notary Bernardo Masini signed the sale of the “Podere con casa da Signore e Lavoratore e con terre lavorative, vitate, olivate, fruttate e boscate, situato in località detta “il Pozzo” a San Lazzaro in Valdelsa, Vicariato di Certaldo”.

Land, Vineyards and Olive Groves

Tenuta il Pozzo covers an area of 60 hectares in the heart of Chianti, in the Chianti Colli Fiorentini area and on the border with Chianti Classico. Starting from the villa, which dominates the valley from its 250 meters of altitude, the estate descends and develops southeast and southwest in soft hills up to about 150 meters of altitude. The soil is partly sandstone and partly loamy-clayey, with a rich presence of beautiful fossil shells. […]

Wine Cellar

The Cellar of Villa il Pozzo is adjacent to the villa, camouflaged among olive trees, cypresses and sea pines, which frame a spectacular view towards the hills of San Gimignano.

Built in the 70’s, in the style of a typical Italian winery, the value of tradition is combined with innovation to guarantee quality.

Every step is entrusted to the wise care of Duccio Gori. […]
