Livernano, Radda in Chianti, Tuscany

Here, the stars light up the night like you've never seen before. The staff are super nice/helpful. The pool is the perfect place to spend your time relaxing and enjoying the silence. Heaven on Earth!

ecluded! There is no other way to describe Livernano. Some 9Km along a 'strada bianca', is the Livernano estate.

The extraordinary American, Robert 'Bob' Cuillo and his wife, Gudrun who is from Austria, embarked upon the ambitious and complete restoration of Livernano in the late 90's. The result is remarkable.

Offering 14 individual guest bedrooms, each immaculately styled and just so comfortable. The beds are enormous!

The swimming pool (38ft x 19ft) has been beautifully integrated into an ancient terrace. A generous buffet breakfast is served every morning, light lunches are available, and an authentic four course tuscan dinner is prepared by the chef.

Wine & Grapes

In the heart of the Chianti Classico region, Bob and Gudrun created a state-of-the-art cantina (wine cellar), surrounded by woods, and sympathetically designed.

Livernano and its sister vineyard also owned by Bob and Gudrun, Casalvento, have emerged as premier wine estates of the Chianti Classico region. Their pedigree is there for all to see, producing multiple award winning, highly rated wines.

Situated 600m ASL, the vineyards are the clever combination of tradition, innovation and collaboration. Internationally renowned enologist, Stefano Chioccioli works closely with Bob and Gudrun.

Livernano is a Top Winery. It has been awarded many prizes over the years such as “Tre Bicchieri” from Gambero Rosso Guide (the most important award for a wine in Italy). The Gold Medal was awarded at Los Angeles County Fair, USA as well as high ratings on Wine Spectator and other wine guides.
