This American owned winery, the winery of the year 2015 in Europe diserves a visit. If you don't drink wine - enjoy the view. We were met by Bernadeete, a German having lived in Tuscany for 25 years, married to an Italian. She quickly assesed our wine knowledge, and then the tasting began. Lots of discussion about marketing, style, and... More

Is worth visiting it, beautiful winery, kind attention, great enoteca! Try La Taverna Restaurant! One of the best, if not the best all around Tuscany!

We visited on a Sunday when the winery is closed, so we didn't get a tour, but the wine tasting was an excellent sampling of their whites, rosés, and reds, including sparkling wines, with detailed descriptions and explanations. It is possible to buy bottles of the wines in their shop and they have a wonderful selection of other items for... More

I visited Banfi with a colleague in February. We thought it would be a good idea to drive there...leaving Milan, stopping in Florence for a night and then returning all the way back to the Piedmont region the next day. Faint of heart, we are not! It was winter and driving through the mountains was a bit treacherous, but we... More

This was a lovely winery to visit. The grounds are gorgeous and are worth a visit to just see the castle and view. The property is very large, with the winery, restaurant, wine shop and sprawling vineyard. The employees are pleasant and many speak at least some English which is an advantage. I was with a tour group so I'm... More

On my second visit to Banfi Winery I got a tour of the winery and a tour of their balsamic storage area. The tour and the wines were outstanding as well as the balsmic. Some balsamics were 30 years old and off the charts great. On this second visit I took my family to the back were the hotel is... More

The wife and I took a tour of the estate with our friends and had an amazing time. We were very impressed with the amount of information and detail from our tour guide. We were able to see every facet of the winery and even took a tour of the museum on site. The Enoteca has an excellent assortment of... More

The property is absolutely outstanding! We were to early for the tour but we spent a good hour in the enoteca tasting and then buying wine! I would go back in a heartbeat!

Castillo Banfield Wine Estate was set in an absolutely beautiful Tuscan setting. The tastings are in a beautiful room and the wines are superb. The restaurant was not open when we were there or we would have definitely tried it. We enjoyed hearing about their vinegar and seeing the vinegar room as well. It's best to visit with a guide...

It was a last minute decision to stop at this attraction.. We were blown away by the beauty of the grounds and the history of the building. I cannot give any information on the wine tasting but the room where it was held was gorgeous and the extensive list of wines to choose was extensive. We wandered around for photo... More
