Capannelle , wine producers in Gaiole in Chianti, Siena, extends over about 20 hectares (16 of Vineyard) and produces about 80.000 bottles of wine a year. The owner is James B. Sherwood, founder and shareholder of the Orient - Express Hotels LTD., which owns some of the world's most beautiful hotels: Hotel Cipriani in Venice, Hotel Spendido in Portofino, Villa San Michele in Florence, Hotel Caruso in Ravello and many others.

The history of Capannelle wine producing dates back to 1974, when Raffaele Rossetti, a 40 year old business man in Rome, decided to purchase an old XVI century farmhouse in the heart of Chianti.

The farmhouse
Since then, the farmhouse has been radically renovated. Structural interventions and significant restoration have removed almost every trace of its peasant-like past, making the interiors an expression of high quality and exclusivity. Here Capannelle regularly hosts well-known chefs, restaurateurs and lovers of its wines.
