  • We took the day and drove into the country about 45 min to this amazing castle, and went on a great tour of the grounds and garden then deep into the cellars and wine making barrel rooms and felt the ...  more »
  • We booked a tour + tasting at the price of 18 euros directly on the company website; staff very courteous and friendly. We made a visit in late July, at a time when in Tuscany on 95% are foreigners, but despite this, the staff of Castello di Verrazzano was unable to find a person (Fabrizio) that we would follow in a very interesting visit in Italian private for just the two of us. The cellars are beautiful, ancient, and allow us to understand the history of one of the most important castles of the Chianti Valley. Visit more than excellent, explained in detail with enthusiasm and technicality; fantastic location, surrounded by greenery and steeped in history. Most wines that taste great, especially the reserve, you will be hooked. Also note the "low" price compared with other businesses in the area; in fact we did visit (1 hour private) and tasting of 3 wines + olive oil + vinegar and pecorino cheese for only 18 euros per person. That you want? Recommended!

  • Awesome vineyard tour! The guide was super informative full of fun facts and stories! The location is gorgeous and the road to it is as pastoral and beautiful as they come. We took the medium price tour with 4 different types of local wine to taste and a small lunch (they have a carne and vegetarian options). The overall experience was so great we'll have to come back! 😙👌❤️
  • Stopped here during our trip from Florence to Rome. Great tour with Maria - she was fantastic!! Had the delicious lunch and wine tasting. So much food... Was feeling full and wonderful after the 3 hours we were here. I HIGHLY recommend!!
  • The staff, grounds, and wine here is awesome. We did a tour with Kiara which was incredible and ended with a very nice tasting complete with cheese, bread and oil, and house made balsamic vinegar. Highly recommend! The staff truly makes this place stand out among the wineries in the region.
  • Awesome. Simply the best wine tasting food experience we had in the Chianti Classico region! Neri was our host for the evening. He is well rehearsed and informative. Life is too short not to make your way to Verrazzano. Recommend dinner reservations. You will be greeted and taken through the historical aspect of the land. You will also be taken through how the estate runs and makes excellent wine and food. Families live and work there. The dinner is set in one of the main rooms and family style. There is plenty of food and wine. I forgot to mention the balsamic, wow its good. I would have had pictures of the food, but was essentially taken with the experience and talking to the people seated with. Each course is paired with wine. Actually recommend not driving yourself there, there is too wine and food to enjoy.
  • Beautiful place to have lunch and taste some good Chianti wines. Food is good too. They have an interesting story of Verrazano's adventures and his connection to NYC. Fascinating!!! Don't forget to try the aged balsamic vinegar.
