Castello di Ama: Art and Wine

Ama, located in the commune of Gaiole in Chianti, in the province of Siena, is a tiny hamlet perched on a rise at some 500 metres’ elevation, in an enchanted landscape that conjures up the frescoes of Benozzo Gozzoli.

Castello Di Ama was founded in the 1970s by a group of families who had fallen under the spell of this magical spot. About 75 hectares under vine, around the village of Ama. The vineyards lie between 420 and 527 metres above sea level and extend across four valleys referred to by their traditional names of Bellavista, San Lorenzo, La Casuccia and Montebuoni.

Castello di Ama doesn't only produce great wines, it also began an art project in 1999 in collaboration with Lorenzo Fiaschi and Galleria Continua. On average, one commission has been added every year.
