Description

La Ripa in the 1400′s was owned by Anton Maria di Noldo Gherardini, father of Monna Lisa and in the 1500′s it was clearly indicated in the Maps of the Captains of the Guelph Party. It is located next to an ancient hilltop road “Via di Cresta” that linked the valley of the Pesa river, and consequently Florence, to the valley of the Elsa river and the “Via Francigena” that the Crusaders took to get to Rome and Brindisi and from there to the Holy Land. The property is nowadays positioned on the border of the Florence and Siena provinces, between San Donato in Poggio and Castellina in Chianti, in the municipalities of Barberino Val d’Elsa (Fi), for 40 ha, and Castellina in Chianti (Si), for 100 ha, at the beginning of the High Chianti region. It is situated in a zone of medium hillsof between 400 m and 600 m, its soil is stony, alkaline (pH 8) and very rich in carbonates. La Ripa has been a property of S.A.Santa Brigida since 1940 and has produced, bottled and sold its wines and Extra Virgin Olive Oil since 1968. Its products are mainly exported to USA, Canada, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Switzerland and to several States of the E.U. All the products of Fattoria La Ripa are the result of the strict application of the rules of Biological Farming.
