An unforgettable experience

Visits and Tastings

Castello di Monsanto offers the public the chance to visit its stunning winery. Visits include an introduction to Chianti Classico and to vine-growing techniques, an explanation of the various phases of production, from vinification to refinement, and conclude with a tasting of wines from the estate. The whole thing lasts around one and a half hours. By request, we can also organize more in-depth seminars and vertical tastings with typical local food pairings.

Visiting the Monsanto winery is an experience that enables you to soak up the passion, energy and care that fill the air of this place. The beautiful gardens, lovingly tended by the expert hands of Giuliana Bianchi, form the perfect backdrop for a unique experience.
