Gran Cru

Gran Cru: wine lovers admist the Chianti hills

Private Tour. An exclusive and in-depth tour to discover the oldest winery in Italy.

You will meet your guide at the Wine Shop and will start the tour of the estate with a private car.

The tour begins at the ancient Brolio Castle which bears witness to the long and fascinating history of the Ricasoli family. The barons have made fundamental contributions to the political history of Italy and the agricultural and enological development in the Chianti Classico area.
After, the tour takes you to our incredible Cru vineyards, the most important in the estate. You will learn about the multifaceted soils, climate conditions, zoning projects and the research and selection of the Sangiovese biotypes. The whole system is based on a modern concept of viticulture and wine making which resulted in the birth of our grand cru wines.
Our state-of-the-art vinification area combines productive functionality with an aesthetic environment to create an ideal facility for the production of excellent wines. The wines are then aged in barrels in the underground “barriccaia” located in the adjacent wine cellar.
After understanding the philosophy and history of this estate, the tour concludes with a tasting in a private room of an exclusive selection of our wines. The tour concludes with lunch at our restaurant, Osteria del Castello. Our chef Franco Sangiacomo will let you discover the authentic Tuscan cuisine in a beautiful and relaxing environment, immersed in the magic English woods at the foot of the castle.
