The Grati family own a magnificent hill of vines on the western side of the Rufina valley just outside the town of Rufina where part of their cellars are located. Gianfranco, daughter, Cristiana, and son, Gualberto, are the current generation running the business. The Rufina valley makes sangiovese wines of real distinction, close in quality to those from the Classico district south of Florence, but the style is slightly different as the vines are cooled by the breezes which come down the Sieve valley. They represent great value which is why Grati's wine is chosen for The Society's Chianti Rufina. The family are also famous for the quality of their olive oil.
