About Lee Venturini Del Greco

This property is part of the organic wine farm of Castelnuovo Tancredi, and this hamlet where the Villa Argante is, was renovated about 10 years ago. Every year we make improvements to keep it comfortable for our guests. This should be your home away from home and we will try to do everything to make your stay with us as memorable as possibile.

On the estate, which encompasses over 600 hectares of this territory, we grow grapes for our organic wine production, organic cereals such as wheat and barley, and maintain the animal reserve where we have reeboks, pheasants, hare and wild boar.

I am a sommelier master level and love to talk about our wine production to eager listeners and wine lovers.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Annabelle Moseley says it so perfectly in "A Tuscan Countryside": "Drive as a passenger through Tuscany, and even if you squint or fall asleep, but catch brief glances, through curtained blinks, still you will see rows of green and cream-yellow fields, vineyards, grey crooked branches pointing to the soil like rows of gnarled , arthritic fingers poised above piano keys. You'll catch the green guard of cypress trees, thin as pipe cleaners, straight as hard-backed chairs. Farmhouses, roofed in rust and terra-cotta, bodied in hazel hues, paths that meander through the fields like sienna colored snakes among the wheat fields and olive groves.Hills will always interrupt the valleys-bends will surprise roads, and even in winter, fields are crowded with the sleep of sunflowers waiting for August!"

This will be your absolute favorite vacation of all, and we guarantee that you won't want to leave!
