The Culture
of Wine

The Wine & Art Gallery
An excursion into the Estate’s History from the Medici to Ferragamo

In keeping with the Borro philosophy wine is not merely a product but it is the soul of a genuine culture which places it at the center of each and every activity. The intention is to be the bearers of the wine’s historical value and to disseminate its guiding principles.
The Wine & Art Gallery is a one-of-kind private collection. The historical incisions, owned by Ferruccio Ferragamo, exhibited in the Borro’s Gallery include 67 incisions ranging from the 15th to the 19th century which depict the many facets of wine.
It is the artist’s view of “ways of drinking”, from the everyday dimension to the mythological and dreamlike dimension of the gods.
The Gallery currently exhibits over one hundred incisions made by artists such as Mantegna, Durer, Aldegrever, Parmigianino, Bloemart, Rembrandt, Callot, Tiepolo, Canaletto, Fattori, Whistler, Tissot as well as contemporary artists such as Chagall, Picasso and Warhol.

Visits to the cellar

The Borro opens the door to their cellar with organized tours for the purpose of assisting wine lovers in approaching winemaking and to guide them in the discovery of the vineyards that surround the Estate. But there is more to the tour than merely observing the vineyards, the views and tasting the wine; it is an all-inclusive experience with an expert guide encompassing both the vineyards and the cellar itself. It is a special excursion which ends with tasting of the Borro wines in order to fully appreciate the results of this century-old story.
