Near Pontassieve in the heart of Chianti Rufina country, the famous Frescobaldi has their gorgeous castle-winery, Castello Nipozzano. Housed in an authentic 1,000-year old castle, this is probably the most beautiful wine tasting you'll ever do!

With more than 700 years as Tuscan wine-makers, the Frescobaldi family has a top-notch reputation and perfected technique for exquisitely crafted vintages. It was one of the most prestigious producers in the region. Schedule a wine tasting visit to receive a tour of the castle and the cellars, take a walk among the hundreds of acres of vines that face the Arno River valley, and enjoy sampling the wines -from a "basic" Sangiovese and Toscano IGT up to the Chianti Rufina Riserva DOCG. You can also reserve for a delicious lunch, prepared to pair with the wine tasting.
