  • We stayed at this beautiful medieval castle only for one night, but it was enough to understand how much professionalism in who works there and run it. We arrived in pouring rain, after hours of travel, but the receptionist with his kindness has brought a ray of sunshine now! Drove us into the room in the old rectory to the Church in front of the Castle. The room is equipped with air condition, mini bar, TV and hairdryer. the style is simple and pleasant keeping alive the ancient spirit of the place. We tasted a good Chianti they produce in the lounge near the reception where boast walls full of bottles of Chianti wine produced from their vineyards of Sangiovese grapes. Great wine! Then we had a nice ride in the Castle, which was owned by a noble Tuscan family. The Castle, well maintained and restored, is often used for cultural events and weddings especially cities (British, American, Chinese, Indians ...) given the great beauty of the place. Breakfast plentiful and varied and the sympathy of those who have it served is another bonus. Highly recommended!

  • Absolutely beautiful winery with some really special wines! Not great at guided tours, but come here with a small group and you will have a great experience with food and wine pairings!
  • For the price we would have expected better service and a warmer room! It was quite cold...
  • We've been in Italy for a week now and definitely this has been the best part of it. The castle is very well preserved, the doors, the walls, the rooms, the dinning room and the breakfast room are al amazing. The rooms are confortable and really take you back to old times. The premises are very pretty and are very nice to visit and take a walk. The zone of chianti is beautiful, there are many places to visit and all of them are interesting. The zone itself, the houses, the farmhouses, the monasteries that can be found are all awesome. We tasted great wine, but the best of all was the vinsanto which was amazing.
  • Went there for a wedding, greatest views you can get for a wedding ceremony.
  • It is a very old castle. Medeval ambience. Went during a non harvest time. Stayed in a separate cabin away from castle. Peaceful and so far away from cities noise etc
