The winery was recommended by our hotel and we had no idea what to expect when we arrived. Christina was our host for the wine tasting and was amazing, we couldn't fault her, she was knowledgeable, funny, very warm and welcoming. She took us through the winery first and explained how the wine was made and what makes a Chianti... More

I need to preface this review by saying I have been involved in active tourism in Italy for the last 18 years, at the highest level, acting as manager for several of the top active travel companies based here in Italy. I have specialized in Tuscany since 1997 and many Tuscan friends have commented I know Tuscany better than they... More

We visited Chianti in early July and stayed at Rocca di Castagnoli for a wonderful week. We chose to rent an apartment so that I could shop the local markets and do some cooking. We loved our little apartment - one huge room with everything we needed - in the castle. The bathroom was amazing with an astounding shower! While... More

Stayed here for four nights. No AC, No stand up shower. but the staff made up for the lacking of modern conveniences. Wine tasting included--amazing. Big pool was a great view of the countryside. swallow nests with baby birds had the girls fascinated. Max the manager of the restaurant was great. Christina and Esther in the winery were super helpful.... More

The place is an old castle, so don't expect an ultra modern room, and realize that modern comfort must have been retrofitted with all it's compromises. But the room we had was very clean and very cosy. Not in the mood for wine tourism? Enjoy the nice pool with unique views over the rolling hills of Chianti! For a winelover... More

My girlfriend and I were originally going to stay here for a week’s self catering but in the end went with another great place further North. However we heard about the vineyard and that it was worth paying a visit to anyway. We arranged a time and arrived just after lunch. We were met by a very friendly member of... More

Located amongst hills, view on vineyards, olive trees and woods. The old-old building has a special athmosphere, the history really touches you. Every single person we met was very nice and helpful to us. The breakfast in the restaurant is a large selection of a buffet. We stayed in the apartment La Mazzina - it was spacious and the style...
