Tenuta di Petrolo, with its famous winery and prestigious production of Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, is placed on the slopes of the hills bordering the Chianti region overlooking from its favourable point of view the lovely valley of Valdarno Superiore.
The Estate is surrounded by green olive groves, active vineyards and beautiful oak woods in an area full of charm and history. Dominating the countryside and landmark of the Estate, is the Tower of Galatrona which foundations date back to the Etruscans and Romans. The Tower itself lends its name to Petrolo’s wines, the 'Torrione' (which means big tower) and the 'Galatrona'. Petrolo’s manor house, the Villa, overlooks the ancient Romanesque Pieve (parish church) of Galatrona, which houses precious renaissance works by Giovanni della Robbia.
Three small private lakes, were fishing is possible, complete Petrolo’s scenery. On request interesting visits to the wine-cellars and traditional olive-mill can be organized as well as tastings and purchase of the estate's products. Available for our guests there’s Wi-Fi internet in all properties.
Petrolo can accomodate its guests in the Villa and in three independent farmhouses: Costa, Vigna, Feriale I and Feriale II. Managing up to 65 guests.
