IL Molino di Grace

Tuscany, Italy
Il Molino di Grace, “the windmill of Grace”, produces critically acclaimed Tuscan wines that are true to both tradition and terroir. The winery, located at Panzano in Chianti, is named after the historic 19th-century windmill situated on the property. Il Molino di Grace produces elegant wines that are an expression of terroir through the Sangiovese grape, and as such, the use of oak is judicious: Sangiovese must dominate.

It is a family-owned winery who strives, through a sustainable and mostly organic approach in the vineyards and in the winery, to show its deep respect for the land as well as the rich tradition of Tuscan winemaking. In Wine & Spirits 20th Annual Buying Guide, Il Molino di Grace is not only featured within the best 100 wineries in the world, but also places one of its wines in the top 100 best wines globally.
