INTRODUCING: Trambusti (Tuscany/Chianti, Italy)
Trambusti, based in the province of Florence, was founded in 1934 by Orlando Trambusti and is today run by his son Giovanni and grandchildren Giacomo, Veronica and Francesco. The estate’s 52 hectares (which include gorgeous olive groves) are at an average height of 350 meters above sea level, an altitude that is considered just about perfect for viticulture in Tuscany.
