Our Etruscan Legacy

Signature wines of the Castello Banfi estate, available in 50 countries around the world, include the single-vineyard reserve Poggio all'Oro and unfiltered cru Poggio alle Mura Brunellos, as well as three proprietary cuvées, ExcelsuS, SummuS and Cum Laude. Other single-vineyard bottlings include Tavernelle Cabernet Sauvignon, Colvecchio Syrah and San Angelo Pinot Grigio.

Overlooking the vineyards is the estate's showpiece, a medieval fortress now known as Castello Banfi. Meticulously restored as a hospitality center, it boasts a glass museum, enoteca, and the informal "Taverna Banfi," serving traditional dishes of the region. The latest jewel in the crown of estate hospitality is “Castello Banfi – Il Borgo,” 14 luxury guest rooms nestled in the hamlet that grew alongside the castle walls in the 17th and 18th century. Here, discriminating guests are nurtured in a style befitting Tuscan wine country, with cooking classes and wine tastings, vineyard treks and bike rides, cultural tourism or simply relaxing poolside, in the terraced garden, or in the well appointed reading room.

Commanding the high ground over forests, farm-land and vineyards, rolling gently from surrounding mountains and hills down to the Maremma coastline, this historic stronghold of the Republic of Siena has become the region's foremost wine attraction and Italy's Most Honored Vineyard Estate.

We invite you to tour our winery and vineyards, visit our antique glass museum, historic Balsameria, Enoteca, Tuscan Taverna, Michelin starred Ristorante and pamper yourself in the luxury of the artfully restored rooms and suites of the Castello's Il Borgo. You will enjoy an Extraordinary Tuscan Experience. Cristina Mariani-May
