Il Borro is a luxury Tuscan estate that has been producing high-quality wine and olive oil for more than 700 years. However, it wasn’t until Salvatore Ferragamo took over as CEO in 1993 that the estate began to experience real growth and expansion. And now, as Il Borro celebrates its 30th anniversary under Ferragamo’s leadership, it’s clear that his vision and dedication have paid off.
Ferragamo, who comes from a family of Italian fashion and luxury goods makers, was drawn to Il Borro because of his love for the land and his passion for wine. And over the past three decades, he has worked tirelessly to transform the estate into a world-class destination for wine lovers and travellers alike.
One of Ferragamo’s biggest achievements at Il Borro has been his focus on sustainability and environmental stewardship. Under his leadership, the estate has implemented a range of initiatives designed to reduce its carbon footprint and protect the local ecosystem. This includes using renewable energy sources, practicing organic farming, and investing in eco-friendly technologies.
But it’s not just the environment that has benefited from Ferragamo’s leadership. It has also experienced significant growth and expansion over the past 30 years, thanks in large part to his business acumen and strategic vision. Today, the estate produces a wide range of award-winning wines and olive oils, and is a top destination for luxury travel, weddings, and events.
And while Il Borro has certainly grown and evolved over the past 30 years, Ferragamo remains committed to preserving the estate’s rich history and traditions. He has worked to restore many of the estate’s original buildings and structures, including a medieval castle that dates to the 14th century.
As Il Borro celebrates its 30th anniversary under Ferragamo’s leadership, there is much to celebrate. The estate has become a symbol of excellence and luxury, thanks to Ferragamo’s vision and dedication. And with a focus on sustainability, innovation, and tradition, Il Borro is poised for continued success in the years to come.
