About
Vignavecchia Estate has been in the Beccari family since 1840. It Vignavecchia has produced and bottled wine since 1876 when it was inherited by the couple's only heir, OdoardoBeccari (1843-1920). Odoardo Beccari was a Florentine explorer, zoologist and botanist who retired to the winery and devoted himself to cultivating the family vineyards after many years of exploring the forests of Borneo, Celebes, New Guinea, Sumatra, the Moluccas, Australia, Tasmania and many other islands, returning to Italy with rare zoological and botanical collections. In 1924, Baccio Beccari, Odoardo's third son, became one of the founding members of the Chianti Classico Consortium, and with the help of his brother Renzo, continued the family tradition of collecting fine vintages. The company still maintains the Beccari family's private cellar with bottles dating from 1876 to 1931.Today, Vignavecchia is still owned and managed by Odoardo Beccari's great-grandchildren.

Loved this smaller winery. We got a personal wine tasting (which was free if you bought a bottle), learned more about Tuscan wines, the wines were all wonderful... We highly recommend

Impromptu visit
Just excellent! We called in on the off chance without booking and couldn't have been made more welcome. Very friendly family owners who let us taste the wines, have us I quick tour round and chatted to us for around an hour. Thank you very much. We loved the wine and would have bought more but for the fact that we are restricted by flight weight!

Can't recommend highly enough

Great wine
Nov 2018 • Friends
We stopped at this winery twice and both times the owner was there to talk to us and let us try her wines. She was most knowledgeable on the procedures and how the wines were made, also on the grapes and how they take care of them. We had a fantastic time trying the wines and visiting, we left with many bottles of their wine.

Great wine tour/history
Oct 2018
We choose to visit this winery/farm from Tripadvisor. reviews. When we arrived Ursula the owner gave us our tour. The grounds are beautiful. The farm house is stone and cottage like. The history of the farm dates back 4 generations and the wine making process was incredible. Ursula and her family were very nice and shared lots of stories. We sampled several wines and bought some as well. Thank you for giving us such a great experience.

Great Wine Tasting in Radda
Sep 2018 • Couples
We stayed in Radda a few nights and one of the highlights was walking over to the Vignavecchia winery for a tasting (as well as catching a glimpse of a cashmere goat herd manicuring one of their fields).

My wife, being pregnant, couldn't enjoy the tasting with me (but all the more reason to come back when she can partake).

Valentina was very welcoming and treats you like family. She's also very knowledgeable about the estates wines.

As for the wines, all were wonderful with the Riserva being my favorite.

Would absolutely recommend and would come back if/when back in Chianti with our Bambino in tow.

Great wine and good company!
May 2018 • Family
This vinyard is among the older ones in Radda and you can tell this heritage by the interior of the wine tasting room. The wines are really great, my favorites being "Raddese" and the " odoardo beccari"-chianti classico-. The people who work there are really friendly and are glad to answer some questions regarding the wines and the vinyard. I would recomment everybody a wine tasting at Vignavecchia who is interested in original Chianti from Radda and also wants to have a good time.

An olive oil and wine tasting

One of the oldest wineries in Chianti. Probably the most authentic and genuine place in the region. Fantastic home feeling.

Fascinating wine tasting with owner
Jul 2018 • Couples
A wonderful experience tasting some wines and chatting with the owner of the vineyard. We stopped by, without a reservation, and the owner was more than happy to take the time to tell us about the vineyard and it’s wines. A very down-to-earth woman who is clearly proud of her family business, she gave us a thorough introduction to each of six wines as we tried them one-by-one. It was particularly fascinating to learn of the history of her great-grandfather, who established the vineyard and was a naturalist and explorer in the late 1800s. His interests and achievements (he described many species of plants and animals in south-east Asia) are captured in the names and logos of the wines. Vignavecchia produce a decent number of bottles per year (~75,000) but maintain the feel of a small-scale family-run business. We bought several bottles and the tasting fee was subsequently waived, which I think is an important gesture from vineyards. I would highly recommend stopping by this vineyard if in the Radda area.

Lovely experience with just me and my husband. We went upstairs to check it was open and the lady was sat in her office and dropped everything to come and attend to us. We tried 6 wines.. and ended up buying 3 bottles as it was beautiful. Thank you so much!
