About Castello di Querceto

Located in the heart of the Chianti Classico region, just 25 kilometres from Florence and not much further from Siena, is Castello di Querceto, today home to the François family. Their residence dates from the 16th Century, although these buildings were erected only to replace those that had burnt down shortly before; there is perhaps much more history on this estate, which lies on the Via Cassia Imperiale, a road constructed by Emperor Adriano in the year 123 AD, than we realise. At the time of the reconstruction this was home to the Canigliani family, and thereafter the Pitti family, before it came into the hands of Carlo François in 1897. It is Alessandro François, a descendent of Carlo, that since 1978 has taken the reins at this estate.
