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!!!
Fantastic experience! The guide spoke intelligently about the region, the history of the castle and the wines they produced, which were superb. The castle itself is picturesque and includes postcard-quality views from all sides. If you're looking for the Tuscan hillsides you see in the movies, this is your place!
One of our favorite stops 11 years ago on our honeymoon. Enjoyed it just as much this time. The wines were all excellent and their balsamic vinegar was a surprise highlight (like none I've ever tried).
