Pomona (English) "the fruitful") was called the goddess of garden and field crops by the ancient Romans. It gave its name to the winery located in the heart of the Chianti region of Senes. The land is located nine kilometres from Siena and eight kilometres from Castellina. The manor houses, farmhouses, storage rooms and cellars belonging to Villa Pomona have been preserved to this day in their original structure. The estate is surrounded by vineyards, olive groves, woods and pastures. The early declared goal of the owners, to produce an original, traditional Chianti, is consistently pursued to this day.
The five hectares of hilly vineyards face south/southeast. The soil consists of lime marl. More than 90 percent of the vineyards are planted with Sangiovese, Colorino and Cabernet Sauvignon. The environmentally friendly vineyards are five to 25 years old. When working the vineyards, the landowners pay particular attention to the balanced care of the soil and the harmonious development of the vines.
The history of Villa Pomona dates back to the second half of the 18th century. At that time the estate was still called Fattoria Ricceri after the name of its owners. The estate also included a brickyard. In 1899 the estate was acquired by Bandino Bandini, an ancestor of the owners. He successfully devoted himself to agriculture and gave the company its present name. Thanks to the brickworks, Pomona was able to expand considerably in the following years. Wine cellars and an oil mill were added, where olives from neighbouring estates were also milled. With the end of the half-leasehold, activities gradually declined. The estate was in ruins until Enzo Raspi, Bandino's grandson, had it renovated and renewed the vineyard and olive groves. Today, Enzo's German wife Ingeborg Raspi Juergens and his two daughters successfully continue the work on the estate. Also the small Agriturismo reflects the naturalness and nature solidarity of the family. SUPERIORE.DE
