“One should always be drunk. That's all that matters...But with what?
With wine, with poetry, or with virtue, as you chose. But get drunk.”[2]

Wine and architecture in Tuscany

   
   

Tuscany boasts some of Italy’s most famous wine appellations: Brunello di Montalcino, Chianti Classico, Nobile di Montepulciano, Montecucco, Morellino di Scansano…
And Tuscany is one of the leading regions of organic winegrowing. In 1985, the Tenuta San Vito was the first wine-growing estate in Tuscany to switch to organic production.

In 2014 Toscana Wine Architecture was born, a network of 25 wineries noted for their impressive architectural elements and production technologies. These wineries included Cantina Antinori and Fattoria La Massa in the Chianti Classico area; Podere di Pomaio and Il Borro in the Arezzo area; Cantine Dei, Cantina di Montalcino, Cantina Salcheto, Cantina Fonterutoli, Tenuta di Castelgiocondo, Cantina Icaro, Tenuta Santavenere and Badia a Coltibuono in the Siena area; Tenuta Rubbia al Colle, Tenuta Argentiera, Guado al Melo, Cantina Donna Olimpia and Cantina Petra in the Bolgheri and Val di Cornia area; Fattoria delle Ripalte on Elba island; Cantina ColleMassari, Tenuta dell’Ammiraglia, Rocca di Frassinello, Fattoria Le Mortelle and Cantina Pieve Vecchia in the Monte Amiata and Maremma area; and Tenuta di Podernovo and Cantina Caiarossa in the Pisa area.

[2]« Il faut être toujours ivre. Tout est là : c'est l'unique question. Pour ne pas sentir l'horrible fardeau du Temps qui brise vos épaules et vous penche vers la terre, il faut vous enivrer sans trêve.

    Mais de quoi ? De vin, de poésie ou de vertu, à votre guise. Mais enivrez-vous.

    Et si quelquefois, sur les marches d'un palais, sur l'herbe verte d'un fossé, dans la solitude morne de votre chambre, vous vous réveillez, l'ivresse déjà diminuée ou disparue, demandez au vent, à la vague, à l'étoile, à l'oiseau, à l'horloge, à tout ce qui fuit, à tout ce qui gémit, à tout ce qui roule, à tout ce qui chante, à tout ce qui parle, demandez quelle heure il est ; et le vent, la vague, l'étoile, l'oiseau, l'horloge, vous répondront : « Il est l'heure de s'enivrer ! Pour n'être pas les esclaves martyrisés du Temps, enivrez-vous sans cesse ! De vin, de poésie ou de vertu, à votre guise. » [Charles Baudelaire - Le Spleen de Paris, XXXIII].
