Castello Verrazzano cellars

Castle in Greve in Chianti can be reached after a delightful one-hour journey travelling along the picturesque wine road, and on arrival.

The silhouette can be seen in all its ancient grandeur on the horizon, lined at regular intervals by the characteristic cypresses that create the road that leads you into one of the most famous and typical wineries in the whole of Tuscany.

On your arrival you will be welcomed with the kindness and genuineness that characterise those who have always been used to receiving and giving refreshment to wayfarers and pilgrims, and with the same kindness you will be accompanied into what might almost religiously be defined as a temple of the cult of wine in all its forms.

You will start your trip by entering the castle courtyard and admiring the magnificent garden and the reserve of "verri", the wild boars from which the place took its name in ancient times.
You will then continue to the marvellous terrace overlooking the castle's vineyards and estate, and a talk will begin about the lands that surround it and the origins of the grapes that grow on this farm.
