We are delighted to inform our guests that we are joined by the world-renowned Tuscan author, Dario Castagno (www.dariocastagno.com).

We invite you to join us for a tour of the cellars led by our expert Gianni who will guide you through the cellars, introducing you with great enthusiasm to all the products of our vineyard. Along the way, Dario will regale you with anecdotes and facts about the home of Chianti Classico.
Spending a few hours with us is a fascinating experience that can leave incredible lasting effects. This is an experience for anyone who wants to discover not just the history, but the very soul of this ancient and noble region.
The tour commences at 5.00 pm at the winery terrace where Dario and Gianni will have the pleasure of greeting you with a welcoming goccetto (a little drop). They will then charm you through a series of educational wine tastings in our cellars. At the end of the tour you can enjoy an aperitif with Dario, who will be happy to sign his book and answer your questions. On request, the tour can be followed by a dinner at the Tavolo dei Maestri di Vigna, prepared and served by our staff.

It also covers contemporary classics such as Canaiolo a Raspo Rosso, Malvasia Nera, Syrah, Petit Verdot and the various Sangiovese clones.
