Castello di Brolio boasts 1,200 hectares: 230 hectares of vineyards (the largest vineyard extension in the Chianti Classico area) and 26 hectares of olive groves. It produces 2.500.000 of bottles per year, labeled mainly as Chianti Classico wines. You can taste them at the winery shop, open all year round. Inside the walls, Castello di Brolio has a museum and a huge garden where you can enjoy one of the best views of the Chianti area. Beside the brick Neo-Gothic building, you’ll find the Ricasoli family’s private apartments, normally closed to the public but can be visited booking an exclusive wine tasting inside the castle.
The estate hosts a nice agriturismo (with a pool overlooking Sangiovese vineyards) and a cozy restaurant where you can taste the best regional dishes prepared with local ingredients (the chef has 2 vegetable gardens where she grows all she needs in the kitchen using only organic methods). To top it off , there are unconventional tours and activities in the estate, like vineyard picnics and sunset tours. Definitely a perfect place for a Chianti escape!
