Overview

A visit to Tenuta Castelbuono is a journey into the world of art and wine. The Carapace, the winery designed by Arnaldo Pomodoro, is the first sculpture in the world in which one lives and works simultaneously. This unique work of art is a shrine to hold the precious great wines of Sagrantino and Rosso di Montefalco, the true souls of Umbria.Una visita alla Tenuta Castelbuono e un viaggio nel mondo dell'arte e del vino.Il suo Carapace, la cantina progettata da Arnaldo Pomodoro, e la prima scultura al mondo nella quale si vive e si lavora. Un' opera unica quale scrigno di grandi vini, il Sagrantino e il Rosso di Montefalco, anima dell'Umbria piu vera.

We went to this cantine during a Cantine Aperte event, so it was quite busy. It is somewhat out of the way but worth finding. It has a beautiful view of the surrounding countryside, but the main attraction is the other-worldly cantine designed by Arnaldo...More

As this winery can only be visited upon reservation (as their website clearly indicates) I made arrangements for a winetour including winetasting in English language some months before our visit in August. Aurora handled my request efficiently. When arriving we were welcomed warmly by Annalisa....More

This is a highly recommended visit. The building, furniture and all the rest has been designed by Pomodoro. It is a living structure (you will have to discover why when you visit😊). It is definitely worth the guided visit. Annalisa was our outstanding guide. For...More

As we arrived there was just one family. The place is interesting, different in architecture, but, when it was just us, it felt so big, empty and impersonal. The wines were good, but the Riserva was no longer available and the Montefalco is a regular...More
