About the Winery
Ruffino Winery was founded in 1877 by Ilario and Leopoldo Ruffino. The winery quickly received accolades by being awarded a Gold medal in 1881 for its Chianti. In 1942 Ruffino purchased its first Tuscan estate- Villa di Montemasso. By 1960 Ruffino’s wine was already being exported to more than 100 countries. While Ruffino has received most of their recognition for their Chiantis, they also produce some fine sparkling and white wines.
