Must see · Garden · Castle
Tour the vineyards, grounds, and castle at Castello di Brolio. The castle passed into the hands of the Ricasoli family in 1141, and still shows damage from bullets and cannonballs. Admire the surrounding rolling hills and 230 hectares (568 acres) of vineyards from the ramparts of the castle. Sample the family vineyard’s own Chianti wine--the formula for Chianti was invented here in 1872--over a three-course meal in the terrace restaurant.

  • We visited this winery on our Honeymoon in Tuscany and are so glad we did. Our tour guide was fantastic, teaching us both about the history of Italy, the Castle, the Ricasoli family and of course the wine. The wine itself was the best we had in Italy and were happy to take a few bottles home to the US with us. Would highly recommend!!
  • Remember to book in advance for a guided tour. We did the Vineyard Tour, which included a drive round their different locations - clearly recommended! Our guide was very sweet and good at explaining everything. It was a fascinating afternoon! A tasting of wine is included. The castle itself is not anything special, but the view from up there is great.
