  • The castle is very large and well maintained and overlooks from a hilltop vineyards of Franciacorta. Being in part still inhabited, visiting only the 16th-century wing, outdoor areas and cellars where the tour ends with a tasting of excellent wines produced from the vineyards of the Castle. The environments keep the fittings and original furnishings. The visit is led competently by an expert who knows how to engage visitors arousing interest and curiosity. I highly recommend you put the castle on a tour of Franciacorta and Lake Iseo. It is worth checking in advance days and hours of operation.

  • After visiting "The Floating Piers" and ate at the agriturismo Al Rocol, visited with the help this lovely medieval castle. In the heart of Franciacorta, among rolling hills of vineyards, overlooking the castle of Bornato and Villa Orlando, rare example of Renaissance villa built within a medieval castle. Crude stone walls high around a tower of Roman origin from Inverardo of Bornato in 1270 substantiates the important defensive role. Continuing the visit inside, you can admire the park full of trees. The panoramic position of the House allows the view to splurge on the Po Valley and catch a glimpse of, on the clearest days, the Apennines, views the same Dante Alighieri enjoyed several times. After we visited their cellar: you can buy their wines biologoici.

  • My brother and I stumbled here by accident, as we were in the area for the Summer Festival in Franciacorta. We parked on the street. Outside we found some guys that they explained how it worked. We paid 6 € for the tour and tasting of wine. The Guide, a young boy very competent, explained the history of the villa and the Castle, no stir crazy. The visit ended at the winery, where we tasted the wines produced: Curtefranca red, produced from Cabernet, Merlot and Nebbiolo grapes, White Curtefranca Chardonnay and of course the classic method Franciacorta Brut, made from Chardonnay and Pinot. For the latter you pay extra on more than 3 €. These wines you can buy at a discount reserved for visitors, the Curtefranca costing 7 €, while the Franciacorta 20 €. The whole thing took about an hour. Recommended!
