Discover a custom-made kitchen design project in the vibrant yellow color of sunflowers, which fits beautifully into the sunny Italian region of Tuscany.
In the heart of Chianti, the famous wine region in Tuscany, Italy, the manufacturer of professional kitchens – Officine Gullo has crafted a tailor-made design project. This high-caliber yellow kitchen is developed in partnership with the architecture firm Loop Studio Associati.
The entire Tenuta di Carleone estate, which stretches across approximately 100 hectares, fits into the typical Tuscan scenery of Chianti dotted with wooded hills, rivulets, and fertile plains. In this picturesque setting, in addition to a top wine estate, the owners – the Egger family, have renovated the old Pian Vecchio farmstead and the charming Castiglioni village. Thus, a luxury hospitality space has been created, consisting of a winery and villas in Tuscan architecture style. Officine Gullo has crafted a kitchen in the main residence, which blends the traditional charm of the centuries-old forms with up-to-the-minute, sophisticated kitchen technology.
The Cool and Warm Color Palette of a Professional Kitchen
The cool tones of the steel cooking range and the chrome-plated brass of the finishes have been paired with the warmer hues of the straw yellow-painted cabinetry. The designer result is a harmonious exercise in contrasting colors, accentuated by the natural light which shines through an attractive arch window with views over the beautiful Tuscan countryside.
The centerpiece of the kitchen is an OG Professional cooking range, consisting of a dual-zone induction stove, four burners, a maxi burner, an electric grill, and two multi-functional ovens. A professional pyramid hood stands above the cooking zone. The emblem of the estate’s owners has been engraved on the handles, oven doors, and hood.
The kitchen cabinetry extends along the sides of the cooking zone, thus forming two practical work counters. The counter with a wooden top is designed for food preparation, and the steel counter contains the wash zone with an under-the-counter washbasin and a professional dishwasher. Various drawers and storage spaces are situated in the lower part.
A wall of professional kitchen appliances, all in the same style as the rest of the kitchen, completes the project with a wine cellar, microwave oven, steam oven, and a fridge-freezer.
Like in all the creations of this Italian kitchen manufacturer, the composition of the cooking ranges can be entirely customized. From the dimensions to the composition of the stove and the engraving of the handles or colors that can be chosen from the entire RAL range.
Tenuta di Carleone Winery – Tuscan Wine and Architecture
The Austrian entrepreneur Karl Egger and his family have been visitors to the region of Tuscany for decades. They fell in love with a small corner, just outside the medieval town of Radda in Chianti, between Siena and Florence. They decided to purchase an extensive estate stretching across approximately 100 hectares, 20 of which are planted primarily with Sangiovese, plus 10 hectares of olive groves.
In addition to establishing a farm estate, the Egger family has restored the beautiful Castiglioni village with its centuries-old chapel and the nearby Pian Vecchio farmstead.
The Tenuta di Carleone winery was founded in 2012 when the Egger family involved British winemaker Sean O’Callaghan, a leading figure for many years in the Chianti wine region. With Sean’s talent, Tenuta di Carleone is now one of the top wine estates in Italy, respectful of the organic and bio-dynamic principles of wine.
