Silvio Messana

Silvio Messana was a New Yorker who moved with his wife, Catalina and sons back to his parent's hometown Italy. When he was younger, his father planted vineyards in a beautiful farm outside of Florence and they would visit every year until it was sold to a local when his father died. Silvio turned Chianti Classico farm into their home and a portion as a bed-and-breakfast and began working on the vineyards himself. Catalina was always against using chemicals which turned the vineyard to using biodynamic practices.
