Badia Monastero (or Badia d' Ombrone) was built in 867, when Count Winigis and his wife Richilda founded the women monastery of San Salvatore della Berardenga. The monastery probably declined and was re-founded in 1003. This time it was given to a Benedictine male community. For the first time in 1028, it is mentioned as part of Camaldoli congregation. In XIV century the Abbey started to decline.

Now the monastery has been transformed into a farm, which produces excellent Chianti wine.


Chianti sounds good and your picture also looks good! cari saluti Seb

Thanks Seb. To be honest, I did not go to visit the Abbey, but to take stock of Chianti for my wine cellar....
