A taste of Tuscany
Aug 2020
My wife and I visited here on the last day of our holiday and it was the perfect way to finish. We arrived, the only couple, for a tour of the castle and cellars with the Tuscan snack and wine tasting option. Our guide Giuila was excellent, so pleasant and helpful! She gave us a fascinating history of the Frescobaldi family, castle and vineyards as well as a description of the wine production which culminated with the wine tasting and Tuscan snack in the villa. Let`s just say that after the "snack" we didn`t need any dinner that evening and the wine was superb! Hey, if it`s good enough for Prince Charles to visit.........

I would thoroughly recommend visiting here to anyone considering it. We loved it and would come again, thank you Giulia.

Amazing Tour Of Nipozzano Castle Winery
Sep 2019 • Couples
Have been a big fan of Chianti Rufina Nipozzano Reseve for several years. Decided to tour the winery when I discovered it was only 30 minutes east from our hotel in Florence. Emailed Laura at Frescobaldi's Nipozzano Castle Winery to confirm our tour and she gave me a list of drivers. Giuseppe met us at our hotel and he drove us to the winery. A beautiful drive out of Florence east through several small towns including where Frescobaldi's headquarters are located, plus they own all the land for miles around the Castle. We arrived on the castle estate and arrive at Enoteca Nipozzano. We got out and walked into the store and met Laura. We were the first of 3 couples. We were seated at a table for 6 all set for our tour and wine tasting. The other couples arrived and so did Annalisa our guide for the tour of the property. First we went to an a storage cellar off the showroom. We learned about the 700 year ownership the Frescobaldi family married into. The wines they shared with Pope Leo X and Michelangelo. The grapes they brought from France and merged with Italian grapes and all their innovative methodologies. We then went outside to explore the beautiful grounds and walked to the famous 1000 year old castle, which survived WWII bombings. We saw more cellars in the castle, including the home to the Frescobaldi personal cellars. Where each newborn son gets 500 bottles at birth and each daughter 100!! Lamberto Frescobaldi's(current patriarch of the family owned corporation) personal wine cellar. Then walked back to the showroom were treated to sparkling wine(aka Frscobaldi champagne), then at and had 3 full glasses each of three premier Frscobaldi Chiantis and blends, with various meats and cheeses. We learned about the two young couples we were eating with. One from Toronto and the other from Montreal. We all were Frescobaldi wine lovers before coming here. Now even more so. Do not miss this tour. We also got a driver referred from the winery to drive us to and from our hotel.

Screaming & rude. Do not "drop in" or call
Aug 2019
I called this place to try to set up an appointment for a tour or tasting but no one picked up or called me back. So we stopped by, but someone working there--wrapping up a tour--shouted at me that they were closed, not scheduling anything, I needed to call first, etc. She was incredibly, incredibly rude. The place is lovely but why the screaming?

Fantastic Visit
Aug 2019 • Couples
We visited as part of our trip to Florence. We faced many challenges getting to the estate without a car but we recieved an extremely warm welcome from Laura when we arrived. She took us to the shop and explained we would shortly be going out on the visit and took the time to get to know us before the rest of the guests arrived.
We were joined by a lovely family from Wales, Laura made the visit thoroughly enjoyable! We would definitely recommend this visit to anyone (remember to hire a car!)and make sure to take time to take in the gorgeous Tuscan countryside!

MUST WINE TOUR
Sep 2018
We toured the winery a few years back on my birthday. It is an awesome property and was a great value - they even served their own boar sausage from boars that roam their estate.

Amazing estate, fantastic wine and welcoming staff - best part of our trip!
Apr 2019 • Couples
We had the absolute pleasure of discovering this gem in the heart of Tuscany. Nipozzano is both a castle and a wine estate complete with panoramic view of the vines, friendly shop staff, a mouthwatering menu and accommodations available. Having enjoyed the full spectrum of services here: from lunch, to lodging to wine tour, tasting and buying, we can say it is truly enjoyable. The tour is a very interesting step back into history and the wines themselves are aromatic, flavorful, elegant and reasonably priced. In the centuries-old castle, we had a traditional four-course Tuscan feast. The room was just gorgeous, with a comfortable bed and bathroom with tub, views of the vineyards (and boars outside at night – not to worry, they are quiet). There is a living room and kitchen in the common area shared by all the rooms, as well as an outdoor terrace and large jacuzzi. It is not easy to know where to go in Tuscany to have a great wine experience, but we have found the place!

Special thanks to everyone who contributed to our stay: Alessandro the Chef, Marzia and Silvana who took care of our breakfast and tidied the rooms, Giacomo and Giulia in the hospitality team, Monica who carefully attended to us at lunch and Laura in the shop who gives great advice about wine and the region as a whole.
