As early as the 9th century, there are testimonies regarding the parish church of Santa Maria a Coeli Aula, around which the Cadolingi Counts and the Badia Fiorentina owned possessions. Agriculture was vital for the families who lived in the area, and thus, over the years, wine and olive production have developed.
Tenuta Coeli Auli was developed within the parish grounds. It is located in the hills of Montespertoli, just outside of Florence. Giuseppe Barni purchased the Monti farm in 1949, building the wine business by planting vines, emphasizing vineyard care and increasing production. Today the estate is run by the family’s fourth generation, who maintains the same goals as their ancestors – care for the vineyards in full respect of nature. They began converting all of their production to organic farming in 2015, and today they are a fully organic winery.
Tenuta Coeli Auli has 103 acres (42 hectares) of vines & an annual production of 9,500 cases.
