Chianti area, not far from Siena, on the high hill.

The first accounts relating to the Castle date back to the eleventh century, at that time it was a property of the Benedictine monks. Subsequently it became the property of a local feudal family, then passed to the Ricasoli family.

Now the Castle is a property of the joint-stock company Viticola Toscana established in 1968. An important agricultural transformation takes place between 1968 and 1972, when the Viticola Toscana implants 180 hectares of vineyards, then a large wine making cellar was built and production of the Chianti Classico DOCG wine was begun.

The farmsteads have been renovated and those located near the Castle have been turned into farmhouses (agriturismo).

 

 

The Castle offers for your stay in Tuscany the rooms in the old watchtower or with a view of the herb garden and the apartments in the farmhouses renovated in 1998. The farmhouses set alongside the Castle and fortress walls, where once stood small farm buildings. Each part of the house has a terrace or garden for you to lounge outdoors.

A summer pool is located nearby where you can take a refreshing dip.

Breakfast is served in front of a large medieval fireplace in the old Farm kitchen, located on the first floor of the Castle.

Your stay can be an opportunity to take part in farm activities and visit old underground cellar, the Castle’s crowning glory. In the wine shop, set at the end of a path in the castle vaults, you can taste a remarkable Chianti Classico or purchase a few bottles of precious Vinsanto DOC or some traditional organic Extra Virgin Olive oil, brightly coloured and with a fruity flavour.

The Castle could be a nice wedding venue for lovers of nature, wine and countryside.

A small private chapel which faces the yard in front of the Castle is at your disposal for a symbolic and religious wedding in Tuscany countryside. It can accommodate approximately 20 persons.

Religious or symbolic ceremonies may also take place in the lovely gardens overlooking the Siena countryside or in the Castle halls.
