Tenuta Casanova, Castellina In Chianti

4.8
#1 of 17 in Things to do in Castellina In Chianti
Tucked among the rolling, sun-drenched hills of Tuscany, Tenuta Casanova is the perfect place to discover unusual wines as well as local extra-virgin olive oil, honey, and balsamic vinegar. This land had been farmed for a thousand years when Abbot Sprugnoli developed a thriving business producing and selling wines, oils, and vin santo to local monasteries and congregations. Today, you can taste wines like the Chianti Classico, Super Tuscan, and the strawberry-tinged dessert wine Easy to Fall in Love. Take a cooking class where you'll learn to cook typical Chianti dishes, such as fresh pasta, potato gnocchi with traditional sauces, flans, and tiramisu--all expertly paired with complementary wines.

    We LOVED our experience - the best thing we did in Tuscany! And what a beautiful place to explore. Friendly and down-to-earth staff. We love that it's an organic farm and everything is fresh and local...  more »

  • Silvano and his staff were excellent. A personalised tour of the grounds, which are magnificent. The tasting lunch was paired with wines,olive oil and balsamic vinegars - outstanding. I will never be able to eat supermarket balsamic vinegar again. I bought his wine and vinegar and cannot wait to consume. Highly recommend a visit.
  • Truly a 5 star experience
  • Our entire experience here was phenomenal - from the food and wine, to meeting Mia the truffle hunting dog. Sylvano and his wife were exceptional hosts and we can't wait to visit again.
  • Everything was delicious and there was a spectacular view. Wonderful experience.
  • We spent almost 3 hours having lunch here in the most perfect of Tuscan surroundings. The food was exceptional (all 7 dishes) and the wine its equal. The truly amazing part was the balsamic vinegar served both with pork and later with vanilla ice cream. Most of the food comes directly from the block of land where you are sitting and the cellar beneath your feet ages the wine. And the whole package for less than a bottle of mid range wine in a central Florence restaurant.
