Located in Castelnuovo Berardenga, within the Chianti Classico region, San Giorgio A Lapi’s roots begin in 1109 with the founding of the San Giorgino church, which was eventually gifted to the Camaldolese monks of Montegrimaldi. The monastery faced abandonment and destruction during the turbulent 15th and 16th centuries but made a triumphant return when the oratory of San Giorgino was built atop the monastery’s ruins in the 18th century.

Today, the winery is owned and managed by the Simoni family. Aldo Simoni, drawing on his winemaking experience in Trentino, saw promise in the estate. They employ a minimal intervention approach and vinify each vineyard and plot separately, only blending the wines after the aging process is complete.
