The winery is located in the municipality of Radda (province of Siena) in the Chianti area of the Italian region of Tuscany. In 1959 Bruno Fronti founded an agricultural service company in the fields of earth moving, vineyard planting and green space management, which was continued by his sons Fabio and Stefano. The first own vineyards were purchased in 1974, but the grapes were sold to other wineries. The first wine from his own production was only marketed in 2009. The tasting room is located outside Radda in the Vigna Istine vineyard. Since 2012 the winery has been managed by Fabio's daughter Angela Fronti.
