23 GENERATIONS OF LOVE FOR THEIR LAND:
BINDI SERGARDI CELEBRATE THEIR 667th ANNIVERSARY
On Tuesday 28 June a celebrative Summer Cocktail Party at Fattoria di Mocenni,
the Bindi Sergardi estate in Castelnuovo Berardenga
667 years and 23 generations of love for the land: the Casini Bindi Sergardi family celebrates its impressive anniversary on Tuesday 28 June 2016 with a Summer Cocktail Party at Fattoria di Mocenni, one of the three family estates which produce their renowned wine and also one of the oldest hamlets in the township of Castelnuovo Berardenga, with historical traces dating back to 1067.
This event will also celebrate the renovations to the villa, which has become the home of Alessandra Casini Bindi Sergardi, CEO of the family wine business.
Historical documents report the Bindi Sergardi lineage from 1349 on. The current generation of entrepreneurs running the family activities in various sectors – including agriculture, real estate and commerce – are the five adult children of Nicolò Casini, who remains an advisor of fundamental importance.
Among the principal wines is Calidonia, the Chianti Classico Riserva named for the “foremother” of the family and its estates. Today, after more than 600 years, there is another woman in charge of the vineyards: Alessandra Casini Bindi Sergardi.
As well as Fattoria di Mocenni, immersed in Chianti Classico, Bindi Sergardi has two other estates in the province of Siena: Fattoria I Colli, on the Via Francigena, at Monteriggioni, locality known for the production of Chianti Colli Senesi, and Tenuta di Marcianella at Chiusi, south of Siena, which has been producing quality wine since Etruscan times and today offers both Chianti and Chianti Colli Senesi.
The Cocktail Party will host over a hundred figures from the international enological community, hailing from countries where Bindi Sergardi export their wines: Germany, Switzerland, France, Denmark, Sweden, Great Britain, United States of America, Canada, Brazil, China, Israel, and Russia. The following day these guests will enjoy an exclusive guided tour to private locales, and later will experience the Palio di Siena from a special viewpoint: Palazzo Chigi in Piazza del Campo.
