After finding this place in Tripadvisor, in addition to 2 other highly recommended wineries, we asked the owners of a guesthouse nearby for their opinion. They highly recommended Castellare di Castellina as being very authentic and having the best chianti in the area. Unfortunately, the person in the shop was too busy to deal with additional business.We arrived 30 min... More

The tour of the winery was both interesting, informative, and in English. WE had many questions which were answered professionally and thoroughly. We visited a number of wineries in the area and found the quality of these wines exceptional. The location was easy to find and the overall experience wonderful.

We went here on a rainy day and the let us do a tasting without a reservation, free. The guide was very knowledgeable, let us try 4 wines, and was super nice. Nice place for sure and great views!

I sodi di San Nicolo, one of the best wines you will ever taste. Rich, powerful yet elegant, drink a sip and you ll want to have your cellar full of it. Very good chianti and surprising white wine.

We were driving up from Siena to San Gimignano and wanted to visit a winery. By pure chance we ended up in this castello. It is not a castle anymore but an ultramodern winery. The architecture is spectacular and very modern. It has the same appearance as Opus One in California. The tour is very good and impressive. I reallyliked... More

Castellare makes great wine. We enjoyed the opportunity to visit the winery and see where the grapes are grown and the wine made. The tour was great, the property is very beautiful. Our guide was knowledgable and friendly. The wine tasting was fun and allowed us to sample a wine we'd never find in the United States. Overall a fun... More

Castellare di Castellina was our first stop of the day after starting out on an adventerous drive through the heart of Tuscany. Unfortunately, we had not set-up an appointment for a tour or anything of the like prior - we just happened to stop in unannounced. The associate working in the tasting room was apologetic that without an appointment we... More

Today we decided to visit the winery and sample the local brew, even though this meant walking approximately 2 km on a road that was more up than down but it was so worth it. The tour guide was not only informative, speaking excellent English but was also very passionate about the winery and her role within it. The wines... More

Me and my girlfriend are backpacking, and chose this, which was a short walk from Castellina (2.4 km). The guide was very good in english, and had expertise about all. 10 Euro each person, we booked at the tourist information in Castellina.
