Castello di Brolio, Gaiole in Chianti

(4.2/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Tour the vineyards, grounds, and castle at Castello di Brolio. The castle passed into the hands of the Ricasoli family in 1141, and still shows damage from bullets and cannonballs. Admire the surrounding rolling hills and 230 hectares (568 acres) of vineyards from the ramparts of the castle. Sample the family vineyard’s own Chianti wine--the formula for Chianti was invented here in 1872--over a three-course meal in the terrace restaurant.

  • The Castello di Brolio is impressive by the grandeur and beauty! Very well maintained and with fantastic views of Tuscany! It is possible to see the sunset from up there! Important tip he is closed to visitors between November 20/3!!

  • was a little disappointing because we came hoping to view the Castle but alas it was closed and we learned that it is possible to visit only in the summer!

  • Unfortunately I put only one star because there is no they did visit because we showed up at the ticket office at 15:57 and the last entry was for 16:00. As we and other people, who were walking from the parking lot, showed their displeasure at this behavior and had to give up the visit. If one day I get the chance to visit it will revise and improve the review I'm sure it is.
