Tour the vineyards, grounds, and castle at Castello di Brolio. The castle passed into the hands of the Ricasoli family in 1141, and still shows damage from bullets and cannonballs. 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.

  • Admission was 6.50 euro per person plus 1 free wine taste after you visit their gift shop/winery. The castle itself was definitely worth checking out since the view you get from up the castle of the local area is unmatched. It's absolutely beautiful when we visited with sunny and clear skies. Definitely give it a try if you are in the area.
  • 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.
