The medieval castle and winery is situated in the Chianti Classico area on the western slopes of the Elsa valley, looking towards San Gimignano. In 1577 Ludovico Capponi restored the castle and commissioned Bernardino Poccetti, important painter, to fresco the loggia of the court. Production of wine is documented from 1596 on and until today we preserve the tradition and in our vineyards grow exclusively tuscan grape varieties which were used for high quality wines.

Our visit to Castello della Paneretta was one of the highlights of our recent trip to Tuscany. My husband had carefully researched our trip and selected this winery for a visit and tasting. After our drive up the Tuscan hillside we arrived at the Castello about a half hour before our appointment. We were greeted at the gate and told... More

After touring the wine making and storage areas, we enjoyed a formal sit down tasting in a beautiful dining room. We tasted 4 or 5 different wines and most ordered cases to be shipped home. The cost is very reasonable as they keep fres wine stock in the US. The beautiful dining room with full place settings and 3 glasses... More

We visited this place and where impressed by the settings of the castle, garden and landscape. We had no reservation made upfront for a tour, so we got only a small wine tasting of 2 of their wines. Altough we had already ordered some boxes of their wine, tasting of their high-end wines was not an option. A missed opportunity... More

I recently took a tour of the winery and enjoyed a tasting at Castello Paneretta. Their wine is absolutely delicious and very unlike others that I have had in the region. (I bought more than I intended to lol). The history of the castle is fascinating as is the beautiful artwork and architecture of the building itself. I was very... More

Thanks Amanda for having brought a pice of our history and passion with you. Our wines are so different from the other due to the soil and the kind of grapes that we use that are strictly indigenous. We do hope you enjoy our wines Best regards, Alberto More

This winery is amazing! While on a family vacation we scheduled a private tour and tasting of the winery. When we arrived, the gates opened and our tour guide greeted us. We were the only people on the entire estate! We were given a very detailed tour, took many pictures, and were finally taken to a beautiful dining room. The... More

Very friendly tour guide with good knowledge of the wines and castle. Nice views, amazing fresco and nice little cellar. Wine tasting was in a nice setting with some tasty food to accompany the wines. Small traditional producer with very good wines for good prices!

Wow what a beautiful castle! We had a private tour of the castle, wine making and grounds. Views are spectacular. Very knowledgable tour guide who gave us some nice history about the location and wine making. It exceeded our expectations and we were made to feel like royalty even with a 6 month baby!

Had the pleasure of visiting Castello della Paneretta recently. The winery is a beautiful old castle, it's been maintained in superb condition. There are some really neat frescos in the main hall. The views from the castle of the surrounding countryside and vineyards are fantastic. The wine tasting was in the dining room. We drank 5 wines, all really good.... More

We went to two wineries while day tripping to Tuscany from Florence. This was the second one and although the first was lovely, this one was our favorite. The centuries old castle and surrounding countryside are breathtaking. The wine was superb and the tour guide was very welcoming and made us feel like a guest in a home not just... More
