Visualize a villa from the early 16th century, near Florence; build by an enemy of the mighty Medici family. You can easily imagine intrigues of various kinds taking place here. Today, life at the Terraio Villa is probably much quieter. The passion is still there but now it goes into the excellent wines made here.

The wine estate surrounding the villa is called Fattoria Bini. Mariano Bini bought the villa and the farm around 200 years ago and created Fattoria Bini. His heirs, Elena and Francesca Bini, still live in the beautiful villa, situated 20 kilometres southwest of Florence, amidst 20 hectares of vineyards, and olive groves.
