Il Palazzone is a high altitude, 3 hectare property that produces a small amount (about 1,000 cases annually) of Brunello di Montalcino, and Rosso di Montalcino. It was purchased in 2000 by lawyer and CEO Richard Parsons, who for the most part kept a low-profile in regards to the wine. Parsons has a pretty hefty resumé (from Rockefeller, to Time Warner, to Obama) and regularly makes Fortune magazine's annual list of the most powerful people in business. He is one of the most respected African American executives in the country as well as an advocate for social and economic opportunities for under-represented communities.
The Movement Ground Farm vision: We believe in a world where all individuals and families are empowered, sustained, and grounded by an intimate connection to land, food, and community. Movement Ground Farm is premised on a vision that we have the ability to heal our bodies, restore our spirits, build our own systems, and fight for our highest ideals.
We envision a day where communities, who have historically been uprooted and displaced due to land theft, slavery, war, gentrification, development, and environmental destruction, can once again turn to land as a source of healing, sustenance, empowerment, reflection, and guidance.
Our mission is to grow a sustainable, collaborative community-based farm that has the capacity to feed, inspire, and connect landless, displaced, and disenfranchised communities.
