The Dreolino family business produces noble wines with a controlled and guaranteed designation of origin: Chianti DOCG, Chianti Rufina and Tuscan Wines IGT. The production originates in the traditional geographical area of the Typical Chianti near Florence and comes from fine vines, the result of ancient selections belonging to the Tuscan wine culture.
The Dreolino winery was founded in 1939 with Gino Tanini. The name of the company derives from the name Andrea, father of the founder whom the fellow villagers of the time all called Drea. When his son Gino was born, the villagers began to call him the son of Drea, Dreolino, to locate his family.
At that time in the town of Rufina there was another person named Gino Tanini, so to avoid misunderstandings of homonymy, the founder decided to give his nickname to the company.
The Dreolino headquarters was in the historic center of Rufina and from there began the long commercial journey. The decisive turning point came with the entry into the company of his son Raffaello who in 1967 purchased the land and built the current headquarters of the company, a cellar already then with a modern conception. Over the years the company has developed and grown by purchasing more and more market shares all over the world.
In the current property there is the storage area, a modern bottling line that guarantees continuous quality control and a glass refining area.
Fattoria Petroio joined the company in 1997. Located a few km from the headquarters, the farm is a beautiful property in the center of which there is a splendid villa of medieval origin, renovated in 1773 by the Olivetan monks of the monastery of San Miniato, who built a small chapel dedicated to S.Maria in Petroio.
The property is surrounded by 280 hectares of land that wind through olive trees, vines, cultivated fields and a hunting reserve. From this splendid frame the Chianti Petroio wine is born.
The company currently offers a wide range of wines such as Chianti Rufina, Chianti, Bianco and Rosso Toscano IGT, Sangiovese Toscano IGT, Riserve, Vin Santo and Crus.
