What to expect

Discover this beautiful venue and the forgotten story tying Leonardo da Vinci to the city of Milan! Gifted to Leonardo in 1498 by Ludovico il Moro, the Duke of Milan, the vineyard became one of Leonardo’s most admired possessions. Today, it has been brought back to life and its original vines have been restored, ready for you to discover on a guided tour.

In 1495, Ludovico tasked Leonardo with the iconic 'Last Supper', today in Santa Maria delle Grazie, just a short walk away from the vineyard. The fresco surpassed the duke's expectations and resulted in Leonardo being gifted the vineyard. The place shortly became one of his favorites to unwind after a day’s work and he would often wander through the 16 rows of beautiful vines after having worked on the Cenacolo.

A visit to Leonardo’s vineyard doesn’t just include its beautiful gardens, but also Casa degli Atellani, considered to be the last remaining trace of the ancient Borgo delle Grazie. Piero Portaluppi, a former Milanese architect, restored the place in the 1900s. In addition, with help from the University of Agricultural Sciences of Milan, the original vines have been brought back to life, and since 2018 it has donated its grapes to local harvests.

Today, the magic of Leonardo’s vineyard is ready for you to explore firsthand. Stroll through the rooms of Casa degli Atellani, the gardens, vines, and greenhouses, as you learn all about its fascinating Renaissance heritage from your guide. In addition to the history and admirable architecture, you can also purchase some of the vineyard’s only wine, the Malvasia di Milano.
