Hills of Chianti : The Story of a Tuscan Winemaking Family, in Seven Bottles
For readers interested in the story of wine, but who will appreciate a decidedly more old-world and storied approach, a family memoir from one of the oldest winemaking dynasties in the world. As much about what it means to be Tuscan (that magic word) as it is about loving good food and drink, it will appeal to dedicated oenophiles, and anyone who’s fallen under the spell of Italy’s most famous and visited region. The head of Italy’s “First Family” of winemaking reflects on the Antinoris’ 600-year legacy, and a life of good food and drink in the hills of Tuscany.

Most recent in a long list of recognitions, he received a Lifetime Achievement Award from Wine Enthusiast magazine in 2009 for "bringing Italy to the forefront of world enology in terms of innovation, quality and recognition."
