We visited without a tour reservation and enjoyed a quick tasting (they may have provided a tour on demand, we did not ask). The person doing the tasting was friendly and knowledgeable - we enjoyed 3 wines and a taste of grappa (spirit). Driving to the vineyard is really lovely and we stopped to take photos along the way. The parking location also has a beautiful view overlooking the vineyards. Definitely recommend as a quick stop! (Note: it does appear to close around lunch time and open again after-check the hours first).

Very knowledgeable English speaking guide and delicious wine. No hard sell at all. Also sell olive oil.

We'd drunk Castellare Chianti Classico back home and were eager to visit the winery near Castellina, and so glad that we did. Ancient vineyard area with refreshingly modern updating and superb Chianti & Super Tuscan wines with the birds on the label. Friendly folks speaks well of a family business. Charming visit. You'll enjoy. ...

After finding this place in Tripadvisor, in addition to 2 other highly recommended wineries, we asked the owners of a guesthouse nearby for their opinion. They highly recommended Castellare di Castellina as being very authentic and having the best chianti in the area.

Unfortunately, the person in the shop was too busy to deal with additional business.We arrived 30 min before the wine shop closed for lunch and asked whether we could make a reservation for later in the day/week. The person in the shop was busy serving a family as we arrived, so we waited outside after being told that the reservation book was in the office and needed to be checked. After waiting over half an hour, the other patrons left, but the man from the shop was nowhere to be found. Even after ringing the bell at the shop, no one came by, despite waiting a reasonable amount of time. Since the place was so well recommended, we decided to try and make a reservation through the tourist office in Castellina di Chianti. Even the lovely and helpful young woman there had no luck in getting us a reservation. She was told that they didn't have their appointment book handy.

What a shame as the property is breathtakingly beautiful.

We were driving up from Siena to San Gimignano and wanted to visit a winery. By pure chance we ended up in this castello. It is not a castle anymore but an ultramodern winery. The architecture is spectacular and very modern. It has the same appearance as Opus One in California. The tour is very good and impressive. I reallyliked the whole set-up. During our wine tasting the 90 year old owner showed up adding to the whole experience. It is not the standard Toscan set-up but was therefore, the more interesting. The design and set-up was done by one of the daughters of the Mazzei family (the owners since the 15th century). The wine selection is very good. I would really recommend it.

Castellare di Castellina was our first stop of the day after starting out on an adventerous drive through the heart of Tuscany. Unfortunately, we had not set-up an appointment for a tour or anything of the like prior - we just happened to stop in unannounced. The associate working in the tasting room was apologetic that without an appointment we would be unable to have a tour, however, she did offer us a tasting and was very knowledgeable, not to mention passionate, about their property and produc (note: she spoke English very well)t! Upon leaving, we realized that we were not charged, and not knowing if tipping was appropriate, we turned around and bought a bottle of vino to share over lunch.

Castellare di Castellina has some of the best chianti classico we tasted over the three days we spent on the winding roads of Tuscany. If we ever find ourselves back in this locale, we will definitely visit again and arrange a tour to see more of the property. CHEERS!

We were taken here on a group holiday and I nearly opted out. So so glad I did not. For a start the winery is in a beautiful setting and the staff are helpful and enthusiastic. We learnt the history of the family who own it, their traditional and organic methods of cultivation. The tour of the cellars was amazing, great for photos but awesome in terms of the volume of priceless wines in store there.We were also able to peep through the windows and see the bunches of white grapes drying naturally in readiness for the magic process of turning them into Vin Santo S. Niccolo. Needless to say the three wines we tasted were just delicious. The winery also produces its own olive oil. The wine labels are beautiful as well as informative......they show local birds, some of which are rare like the oldest and finest wines. Think I might have to move to Tuscany.

We stopped in for a quick tasting after reading up on the winery and were glad we did. It's not as complementary as some; I don't believe they do tours. But the tasting was quite nice. And the panoramic views were straight from a Tuscan postcard. We sampled everything and left with a bottle of I Sodi di San Niccolò, their special blend. It's different than all the Chianti, which theirs is also very good. We look forward to finding them in the US!

We wanted to taste Il Poggiolo 2013 but apparently there were no bottles available for tasting (in a very busy day). Overall experience at the wine shop very poor, no real explanation, attendant was very superficial in explaining the wines. I guess they think the prizes are enough to sell wine.

After a long walk from Panzano to Greve-in-Chianti this was an ideal stopping point on our way back to Villa Casalta. Whilst we had to wait a little before going in due to a late running coach, we were made very welcome and spent time wandering around the farm and grabbing some well needed shade. As you would expect the wines were excellent and the proprieter was very entertaining!
