Cantina Baracchi, the Luxury Wine Resort
The magic of the countryside, the pleasures of wine, and the well-being of a spa. A paradise of luxury, the ideal place to regenerate and take refuge in style. In the hills of Cortona, in Val di Chiana (the Chiana Valley), the Baracchi farm has passionately cultivated and produced fine wines since 1860. The Baracchi family’s production philosophy has always been devoted to quality viticulture in order to make unique and amazing products:
Trebbiano and Sangiovese, as well as Astore, Trebbiano, Ardito and Cabernet Sauvignon. Today the farm has been renovated and transformed into Relais & Châteaux Il Falconiere, a wine resort belonging to the Baracchi family which, in addition to continuing the family tradition, offers the perfect location for unforgettable vacations.
The former family home, dating back to 1650, has been a part of the prestigious Relais & Châteaux chain since 1998, sharing the philosophy and art of hospitality: 22 rooms and suites, a Michelin Guide restaurant, a wine resort, and an exclusive spa. At Relais & Châteaux’s Il Falconiere, each room has its own unique style, walls with frescos, original antique furniture, and iron or four-poster beds with woven fabrics in delicate and sophisticated colors. It’s a true jewel of hospitality, where you can taste typical delicacies of Tuscan cuisine. Converted from an ancient lemonary, the Michelin Guide restaurant Il Falconiere is where Chef Silvia Regi Baracchi has reinterpreted Tuscan traditions with a modern twist: each dish is made up of a combination of presentation and quality, and matching wines are produced in the 30 hectar vineyard. Thesan Spa del Relais is the place to find equilibrium and harmony, immersed in the tranquility of nature: in addition to the sauna and Turkish bath, the Spa offers exclusive wellness treatments, such as bathing and relaxing massages with wine. Villa Borgo del Falco is for those who are looking for elite privacy; it is composed of five stone buildings with seven rooms, a bright kitchen, and a garden with swimming pool. Connected to Relais by a pathway through the orchard, this customized little world offers exclusive spa treatments, wine tours, and gourmet meals.
So surrender to the pleasures of an enchanting stay, surrounded by fairy-tale scenery.
