The estate and its history

The allure

The allure
of a timeless place

A family
passion

“A timeless act of faith”, as Ferruccio Ferragamo loves to say, that started in 1993, when together with his family, he brought the century-old Borro hamlet back to life by promoting the history, the traditions and the excellencies. Authenticity, respect for the environment, culture and enhancement of the local expertise are Il Borro’s pillars of sustainable philosophy which underlie each choice.
Heritage
Il Borro

Il Borro
today

An unconquerable stronghold in the XII century, in the mid-50s Il Borro belonged to Duke Amedeo di Savoia-Aosta who owned it until 1993 when Ferruccio Ferragamo became the new owner and the one who can be credited with the Estate’s restoration and refurbishment and for having returned it to its original glories. Surrounded by the Tuscan hills, Il Borro is now an agricultural estate and organic vineyard, dedicated to hospitality and to farm-to-table catering.

Il Borro covers an area of 1100 organic hectares set in the hills of the Tuscan landscape in the heart of Upper Valdarno: a wide natural basin characterized by the passage of the river bearing its name and delimited by the Apennine mountain range of Pratomagno.
