Cortona Events
Around the enchanting hills of Chianti Classico, world famous for their wines, their natural beauty and their millenary history, just six kilometres North-East of Siena, is the centuries-old Villa Margherita, home since 1527 of a Senese family and its winery. Today the family continues to manage the Villa and the precious surrounding vineyards with the passion of those who thoroughly appreciate the beauty and richness of this land.

The Villa and garden, originally built in the 14th century and completely renovated around 1780, have been declared a National Heritage and, with their original decorations and furnishings, form an exceptional historical site where visitors are brought back to the atmosphere of an elegant eighteenth century holiday mansion. In the garden, adorned with centuries-old cypresses, sculpted boxwood hedges and age-old lemon trees is the characteristic open-air theatre with two late-baroque arches surmounted by statues and idyllic setting, during the summer, of classical music concerts performed by important international musicians.

In the cellar of the Villa, approximately 40.000 bottles of premium Chianti Classico and Red Tuscan IGT wines are produced each year, following the highest quality criteria and sold to several of the most important international gourmet shops, restaurants and hotels.

Villa Margherita (used by Bernardo Bertolucci as the set for the party in the movie “Stealing Beauty”)offers precious interiors and stunning gardens together with services and equipments for the organisation of cultural events, exclusives meetings and prestigious wedding ceremonies. A newly renovated guesthouse with 2 independent suites with full comfort are now available. Situated in one of the original outbuildings of the villa, with a private garden hot, open-air jacuzzi.

Villa Margherita offers, to distinguished guests that are looking for refinement, exclusivity and prestige, an ideal setting for visits, wine tasting, cultural events, private parties and ceremonies or exclusive corporate meetings. Our chef and an internal banqueting service, through a modern interpretation of the typical Tuscan and Italian cooking and through the use of quality ingredients coming from small local producers, are ready to satisfy all of our guests culinary requirements.

Closest Town Hall for the wedding civil ceremony: Siena (15 min)
