The farm “il Drago e la Fornace” is in the heart of Siena countryside, just on Francigena way. it’s a multifaceted reality, able to joint together the passion for Design and Architecture and a selection of great wines, a unique and original mix. Several activities rich of the story of the farm take place in this small village, called “la Fornace”, where it’s possible to find a nice accommodation, event planning and all the activities connected to good food, everything characterized by Design. Being heir of a long wine tradition, we produce our wines from the old vineyards on the Chianti Senese hills at Colle di Val d’Elsa. A small village along the Francigena way, with Siena countryside surrounding, a small church consecrated in late 1800 by Siena’s Archbishop, with azure interior with a copy of Chair Madonna by Raffaello on the altar, a restored brick kiln. This is the landscape you could have, choosing our suggestive location for your events.

Close to this last building a new swimming pool will take place for visitors, creating a spectacular water wall from the entrance, while from the other side a glass wall will allow an underwater view of the inner barrique room.
