Elegance is timeless - the Barone of Barone Ricasoli visits China

8th Jun. 2015  /  OUR BRANDS  ·  Ricasoli

Francesco Ricasoli, the Barone of the historic Italian winery Barone Ricasoli, visited China from June 1st to June 6th.
During his visit Francesco, the 32nd generation of the Ricasoli family, travelled across the country visiting Beijing, Nanjing and Shanghai. The Barone met with customers and conducted tastings and media interviews, immersing himself in the market and sharing the history and culutre of Barone Ricasoli with China. 

 

The very talented Francesco used to be a professional photographer, so the lucky fans who were following his visit were also able to win fantastic postcards with photographs by the Barone himself!


The Barone Ricasoli Estate is one of the oldest in the world, established in 1141 and located in Chianti, Tuscany. The family-run winery is actually the 4th oldest winery in the world, and they were the ones who actually created the Chianti “recipe” in 1876.
