The sighting tower in stone built in the thirteenth century is an evidence of its warlike past. In 1300 the farm was donated to the Sienese noble family called Sozzini that carried out the first big transformation from a military building to a villa.

In a short time, the farm became a thriving farm centre mainly devoted to vine and olive growing. In the sixteenth century, Borgo Scopeto was an important theological conference centre which agreed with the theories of the Reformation. For this reason, the Sozzini family was persecuted for a long time by the Inquisition.

However, the property continued to grow concentrating on wine production and only recently it started to bottle its own wines. The first bottle of Chianti Classico with the Borgo Scopeto label dates back to 1990.
