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.

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! The wine tasting was held in... More

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

Our group of 8 visited the vineyard and also had a wonderful wine pairing lunch. It was a private seating and we were the only people at the vineyard. Lovely guide told us so much about the history of the family and the wines. We ordered wine to be shipped directly home. Delightful afternoon.. highly recommend!

One on one wine tour followed by lunch wine pairing. The castle and scenery are breath taking. The owner just lived right above the winery. Can see they take every process at heart. Lunch is delicious. The tour guide is knowledgeable and friendly. We feel important and exclusive!

This was a great find to see a real working mid sized winery with great history and wonderful wines to choose from A wonderful drive through the rolling hills to find this historic gem sitting there just like a storybook castle with a incredible view of the acreage.

.......and the wine isn't bad too! After a full day touring the Chianti region, this was our last stop. it's off the beaten track and not easy to find - you come across the agritourism house of the same name first. Keep driving a little and then be prepared to be amazed. The castle and grounds are simply stunning, the... More

As described in all previous reviews it is a very picturesque place. The environment with its wineyard and olivary grove is relaxing. The guesthouse is in a typically toscanic style with wooden dark furniture and terracotta tiles so we felt homey quickly. But our impression was impaired already when we arrived because the room service were still in the flat... More
