The Ricasoli family is still living here in this massive castle in their 30+ generation since the 12th century. Apparently they have 'invented' the Chianti Classico. And ever since, the family's business is wine making. And although they must be making a mint with their...More

Our location is very close by in Gaiole, it was very warm so we decided to just drive by the castle without any intention of visiting due to some of the remarks... It would have been a "major" mistake not to visit this stunning place....More

The self-guided tour was leisurely and spectacular. Even the gift shop is pretty sweet. The tasting room in town below the castle was super friendly. Oh yeah, the wines are great!

We visited in the morning, prior to any guided tours, so we did a self-guided tour. It is really an amazing place. We walked throughout the outside of the castle and into the chapel and catacombs under the chapel. But the best part is the...More

Beautiful setting. We were able to tour the grounds for a cheap price (5 Euro pp) and this included a free glass of wine at the winery. Worth the visit.

We were not shown this during our July tour. You should ask their customer representative.

I write a review about a castle in Tuscany, and you want me to tell you what it "costs" to visit someplace in ROME? Get serious. You need to learn about a little think called "Google".
Hello! We are thinking of going to Castello de Brolio this summer. I saw a review that said the tour of the gardens/chapel/crypt was just 5 euro plus another few euro to tour the "keep" plus a wine tasting. While on the website, I didn't see any tours for this price. They were all 25 euros or more. We 'd like to do this type of tour (on the cheaper side) so do you know if these cheaper tours are simply not published??? Thanks, Jackie O.
