Wine and, in particular, the well-known Chianti belong to Tuscany like cypress hills, pines, and exquisite Italian food. During your holiday at our winery in Italy, you can participate in wine tasting or guided tours through the vineyards. Toscana Resort Castelfalfi grows more than 24 hectares of vines, especially the Sangiovese variety, which thrive particularly well in the Tuscan climate. After the vintages mature in the typical wooden barrels of fine red and white wines, you can bring the world's export and a bit of your holiday home from the vineyard in Tuscany.
Also, approximately 2,600 olive trees of the Leccio del Corno, Frantoio, Leccino, and Pendolino varieties were planted recently. They are cultivated according to modern criteria along with more than 8,000 traditional olive trees, which are also part of the estate's olive groves. Almost the entire area of olive groves is certified organic. Of course, these olive oils can be tasted and purchased.
During your holiday at the winery in Italy, you have the opportunity to expand your knowledge of wine during a wine tasting. In the Barriccaia Wine Cellar, just 900 metres from Hotel Il Castelfalfi, you'll get to know the outstanding wines of the winery with expert guidance during your holiday in Italy. Among other things, you'll learn how wine is properly tasted and how you can recognise a good drop with all your senses. Several red and white wines will bring you exceptional tasting experiences. Particularly full-bodied, next to the Chianti, is the Poggio alla Fame, which consists exclusively of the famous Sangiovese grapes ripened right here. But also grape varieties such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Alicante, Vermentino, and Viognier are grown at Toscana Resort Castelfalfi. Try the range of exquisite wines, become a wine connoisseur, and delight friends and family at home with your new holiday knowledge from our Italian winery. Please note that the wine tasting is upon request. Our BLUE Guide will be happy to help you organise an appointment.
For anyone who's come to the sample the region and would like to learn more about the wine and origin of the vines on an Italian holiday, a tour of the in-house vineyards of the Toscana Resort Castelfalfi is recommended. More than 24 hectares (approximately 34 football pitches) of the resort are made up of vineyards. Some of them have been planted only a few years ago and will continue to produce delicious wine for a very long time. 17 hectares have been created exclusively for the production of the region's most famous red wine, Chianti. Learn all about the winery from our experienced local experts on a guided tour through the vineyards during your holiday in Tuscany. The age-old tradition of viticulture is a fascinating and specific process, because each grape variety needs a different, loving treatment. The requirements vary depending on the soil type, rainfall, and sunlight. Therefore, each wine develops its own flavour. The star among the Italian grape varieties during your holiday at the winery in Italy is definitely the Sangiovese grape, from which the Chianti red wine is made. On request, you can finish off your tour through the vineyards with a tasting of the resort's six wines . This will give you a first-hand understanding of the wines that are produced at the winery in Tuscany where you spend your holiday. You can also enjoy them during dinner in the restaurants at Hotel Il Castelfalfi in Toscana Resort Castelfalfi. Feel free to contact our BLUE Guide if you would like to join a guided tour of the vineyards. They would be happy to arrange an appointment and organise a pick-up at the hotel for you.
