Winery: Il Molino Di Grace

TUSCAN TERROIR. CHIANTI SOUL. Il Molino di Grace is, simply, the taste of Tuscany. Located in the heart of the Chianti region, Il Molino di Grace is an alluring and authentic capture of Chianti Classico soil, grapes, climate, tradition and innovation. The winery of Il Molino di Grace – the ‘windmill of grace’ – stands upon 30 hectares of vineyards that have been producing traditional Chianti Classico wines for over 350 years, and is complete with an historic 19th century windmill and world-class sculptures. The Frank Grace family is a passionate caretaker of this fabled tradition of making critically acclaimed Tuscan wines that celebrate the idyllic marriage of Tuscan terroir and Sangiovese grapes.

A STEEPED TRADITION CONTINUES Il Molino di Grace is steeped in the historic Chianti Classico tradition producing old world Classico and Super-Tuscan wines for the modern age. Founded by Frank Grace in the 1990’s, the winery of Il Molino di Grace was built with a simple vision: to bottle the most authentic expression of this rocky terroir and succulent Sangiovese fruit that the picturesque Chianti hills deserve. The vineyards that now produce Il Molino di Grace’s wine having been doing so for over three and half centuries. Harvested first by monks from the local monastary, these Chianti Classico vineyards have awed winemakers and wine enthusiasts every harvest since. Today, an awe-inspiring 9 meter statue tall of an out-stretched, sun and moon holding San Francesco della Vigne stands proud over the rolling vines, blessing all those who have toiled and will toil in this Galestro soil. The winery’s active founders, Frank Grace and his two sons Tim & Dan, instilled and infused the science and technology of modern organic wine production with the artful tradition of old world wine making. Il Molino di Grace celebrates this delicate balance of creativity and innovation – the rocky, sloping south facing fields that bear the Sangiovese fruit, the cellar produces it, the artwork showcases it, and the wines embody it.
