Borgo San Vincenzo, Tuscany’s newest luxury boutique hotel will officially open its doors in the summer of 2022 after extensive renovations and enhancements. Celebrating the region’s historic wine scene, the countryside property focuses on offering sophisticated wine-driven experiences and personalized itinerary curation making it a place to connect authentically with one of the world’s most storied destinations.

Sitting in Southern Tuscany’s countryside, in the prestigious Vino Nobile vineyards of Montepulciano in Italy, Borgo San Vincenzo is an 18th-century farmhouse named for the patron saint of winemaking. From fascinating enclaves, UNESCO-protected vistas, world-class wine tasting, and exceptional cuisine, guests can create meaningful and memorable experiences uncovering this extraordinary region. Known for its legacy of gracious hospitality, spectacular vineyards and winemaking heritage, this slice of Tuscany remains very authentic with small-scale local producers focusing on crafting high-quality items made in the same way they have been for generations. 

“Borgo San Vincenzo was born out of a love for hospitality, wine tourism, and the desire to offer travelers the opportunity to connect with the people and moments that make Tuscany an exceptional destination,” said Shannon Kircher, one of the founders of Borgo San Vincenzo.  “Our guests will have access to unique and curated offerings including wine tours & tastings, cooking classes, sunset dinners, aperitivo crafting classes, and much more.  It will truly be an unforgettable getaway in the heart of Tuscany.”

The second luxury boutique property by hoteliers Scott and Shannon Kircher, the team behind award-winning Frangipani Beach Resort in Anguilla, Borgo San Vincenzo caters to discerning travelers who want to experience the best that the countryside has to offer in a pristine setting that is welcoming and unpretentious.
