Admire the surrounding rolling hills and 230 hectares (568 acres) of vineyards from the ramparts of the castle. Sample the family vineyard’s own Chianti wine--the formula for Chianti was invented here in 1872--over a three-course meal in the terrace restaurant.

  • We toured the castle grounds and chapel only because the full tour was booked. It was only 6 euros and included a free wine tasting at the affiliated Ricasoli Winery. Both were a treat.

  • 5 stars for the tour of this beautiful castle with beautiful views. Included dinner was not great. Octopus appetizer was very good, otherwise didn't care for the dishes.

  • A castle owned by Ricasoli family for more than 800 years. Since year 1100 they have their own vineyards and are one of the most notable vine brands in Italy and one of the four oldest vine estates in the world. Castle itself is stunning. Basic ticket for entrance is 6.5€ and includes vine tasting. Other tours and bookings available. Highly recommended when visiting Tuscany.
  • If not for the wine, this location is worth visiting in Chianti for the absolutely amazing history and the best views of Chianti anywhere. Great guides and for only 35 euro. for 2.5 hours and a wine tasting it is amazing value.
