Everything at Castello Banfi Il Borgo was perfect. Greeted by a great team with bubbly at check in, beautiful and spacious rooms and bathrooms, fun wine tasting at the Enoteca (great wines), delicious dinner at Sala dei Grapple and peaceful breakfast with spectacular views. Tour of the winery was very interesting, even though it was off season. I cannot wait... More

Italians call their region Toscanna, while English speakers say it's Tuscany. Whatever name you use, this is truly a hidden gem that combines extraordinary service, delicious food, and amazing views. We used this special hotel as a way to survive jet lag and prepare for a seven week holiday. From our window we watched grapes being harvested and the ever... More

When in Tuscany you simply have to make a stop at Montalcino, home of such multifaceted wonders of wine as the great Brunello di Montalcino. We decided to combine a wine tasting with dinner and an overnight stay at famous Castello Banfi. We learned the Castello actually used to be a small village and all the rooms available to guests...

Outstanding small property. 12 rooms. Even the smallest room was grand. Breakfast is included and it top notch. The service is outstanding without having an air of frenzy. The restaurant and the wine tasting is an unbelievable value when one considers the quality of the food as well as tasting 5 or 6 excellent wines. The "enoteca" on property is... More
