  • On a beautiful sunny day in September we went to this wonderful Castle, surrounded by scenic vineyards of Chianti and with an extraordinary view over the Valley. We went on a guided tour, where it was explained the history of the Castle and of the farm, visiting wineries, including the historical ones, with the explanation of the production process. We saw the locals with grapes put to dry to produce vin santo and the vinegar factory. All magnificent and interesting, impregnated of the good smell of wine and expertly explained by our guide. At the end of the round in a stunning rooftop terrace, we did a tasting of 3 wines, olive oil and balsamic vinegar: what can I say, delicious, tasty and quality excellent! We checked out by purchasing these wonderful products!! An enchanting place with its extraordinary history, to visit, highly recommended!!!

  • The chateau is wonderful, with a breathtaking view. It was interesting to have had the opportunity to know the history of the Castle and the verrazzano family. Clare, really nice, he accompanied in cellars and in the basement of the Castle and explained the whole production process, making it very attractive. The tour ended with a tasting of 3 wines delicious (Needless to say). If you are chianti don't miss this park!

  • Wonderful setting, interesting tour and history of the wines and the winery. Excellent tour host and wine tasting at the end. We worth a visit
  • Superb vineyard tour. Our tour guide was so enthusiastic and her English was great. She showed us all around the house and cellars and told us all about the family and the wines. At the end we got to sample a number of the wines with great food to go along with it. Perfect tour to do when in Tuscany
  • This is a great winery with very tasty food to match. The grounds and vineyard are well kept and it has a great view of the valley. We tried the wine tasting and also had some cold cuts and cheeses, it was absolutely delicious, highly recommend this to anyone who comes to chianti.
  • It's a lovely place! I learned a lot about wine, olive oil and vinegar! Plus the food was delicious! Fully recommended!!
  • Didn't book anything in advance, we just arrived and the girl was kind enough to give us a short tasting inside. Bough one bottle and kept on our way. The wine was very good and the sitting area outside looks nice.
