Description

Discover Avignonesi winery; located near the village of Valiano just a few kilometers from the historic town of Montepulciano in one direction and the splendid town of Cortona in the other. 
 
The winery is named after the Avignonesi family, the founders of the original estate. Constant research and development aimed at expressing the true character of the Montepulciano terroir has, over time, earned the winery a well-deserved place among the flagship producers of Tuscany.
