Wednesday of this week, we took all the Management students on a tour of two wineries in the Chianti region. The first was the estate of Niccolo Machiavelli. It is the home where he was exiled after losing favor with the Florentine government. From here he could still see the Florence Duomo. It was torture for this once politically and powerfully active man to be able to see the city but no longer be a part of it. During his exile, he wrote his now famous book "The Prince." The winery is very large and produces over 25 million bottles of wine a year.
