We stayed four nights, the room had a comfortable bed and the location is very quiet. The garden is also nice and there is a pool there. Needless to say that there are vines all around. Overall a very good choice as a starting point to visit many Tuscan cities.

The Borgo was our home base for four nights in the Chianti Region, and I recommend it highly. Our room was actually a mini-suite with a sitting room a few steps above the bedroom/bath level. Very comfortable, good WiFi, plenty of wall outlets for recharging (this was an issue in many other hotels in Italy). We did the free wine... More

No temperature control b/c of the 3-4 feet thick stone walls? Baller!!! This was a fantastic stop on our ride from Radda to Florence. Very nice tour, wonderful wine and nice snacks. My mom, who hardly ever drinks wine, actually enjoyed this a lot. Only 5 Euro per person tasting. And obviously, you can have as much as you like.

This is one of the must do's when you are in Tuscany. The Castelvecchi is on top of the highest point in the area, a long winding road will give you rewards. Their wines are excellent, Sauvignon Blanc not a common wine in Italy is up with new world ones you find in Marlborough or Casablanca Valley. The reds are... More

Incredible view. Wonderful rooms and great dinning. We stayed for 4 nights and day tripped around Tuscany in the spring of 2011. It was wonderfull. Wine tasting with Vincenzo was perfect topped off with a great dinner. We bought 4 bottles of wine which created some weight issues on the flight home but it was worth it. I am now... More

A visit to the Vescine cellar on the premises of the Fattoria Castelvecchi is a must. Giovanni the winemaker is knowledgable and passionate about his wines. There is a good selection of cheaper, easy drinking young wines to more complex Chiantis. All the wines tasted were superb.

Me and my best friend found Vescine while riding on a Vespa around Chianti. We first stopped at the Il Borgo de Vescine, a hotel, where we did some wine tasting a bought 18 bottles of their excellent red prosecco. Virginia, the manager suggested that we visited the winery in Castelvecchi so we did. It was perfect! The young man... More

Was in Italy for 2 months and this was by far the most memorable. My wife and I still talk of it everyday and wish we were there.
