We had a wonderful tour of this huge winery then an excellent 4 course meal in their restaurant. Lovely wine pairings with each course. After, we were invited for a tasting. We were amazed at the generous pours at the tasting- nothing like the quick wrist flick in Napa! We went for the day and did not stay at the... More

Castello Banfi and its Borgo bring luxury to a different level. My wife and I with our friends spent 5 magical days at this amazing castle and winery. The rooms have to be among the best in Europe and the food is multiple star level. It is located on 7000 acres and everywhere you look it is beautiful and pristine.

From the first moment of arrival everything was impeccable. Complimentary beverages upon check in, followed by a fantastic room. Unfortunately the lunch restaurant was full, however the room service is incredible, best Salad Caprese of our trip to Italy, and best pizza of our stay in Italy. The staff are very forthcoming, giving a tour of the property and the... More

All rooms are in the Borgo (little village attached to the Castle). We had a stunning suite (with 2 bathrooms, and a living room). Breakfast each day on a little patio overlooking... More

We traveled from Florence to Rome on our 2 week trip to Italy. Banfi was our favorite. Its luxurious, beautiful and our room had a HUGE BATHROOM! Shower was LARGE. (unlike any other bathroom we had in Italy) This was a highlight of our trip and would live to stay there again.

My wife and I loved our brief stay at the Banfi. The room was amazing and the service was above and beyond. We had a wonderful dinner in their restaurant and everything was perfect! I recommend trying the food and wine pairing one night for dinner. We definitely will be back next visit.
