The Bindi Sergardi family heritage is one closely tied with the history of the Chianti and Chianti Classico region. For twenty-three generations—since 1349—the family has been deeply involved in the politics, economics, and culture of Siena. From being leaders of the Siena government in the 15th Century to one of the founding members of the Chianti Classico Consorzio in 1924, the Bindi Sergardi family lives and breathes the history of the region. The current manager, Alessandra Casini Bindi Sergardi joined the company in 2005 following the 700 years-old tradition of her family in wine making. Inspired by her father Nicolo and following the courageous example of her grandmother Chiara and great grand mother Elisabetta, she gave new light to the family business. They make wine from their three estates: Tenuta Mocenni, Tenuta I Colli, and Tenuta Marcianella. Through their work in the vineyards and cellar they are true Sangiovese specialists.
