The Castello di Meleto is in the center of an ideal geographical triangle formed by the cities of Siena, Florence and Arezzo. Surrounded by six beautiful houses, painstakingly restored in 2000, preserving its rustic Tuscan style. Each house has a private garden or terrace that overlooks the countryside surrounded by green vineyards and olive groves. In the basement of the castle, a real historical monument, a charming wine shop allows you to taste our wines, our organic extra virgin olive oil and salami of Cinta Senese from our farm. In addition, daily guided tours of the ground floor of the castle, the eighteenth-century theater, the dungeons with ancient cellars, prisons and the secret tunnel to escape from the Castle .. will make you to live an unique and unforgettable experience in a real castle in the Chianti area.

Food, staff, and setting were absolutely amazing. I would definitely recommend a dinner event at this place. The staff helped us get home safely, and even helped translate english to italian and back while yelling at the drivers to come get us late night!

This is a wonderful winery to visit. They were so accommodating they let us sit outside on the terrace and brought the tastings to us. 15 euros for two people. Good wine. Also produce olive oil and we were able to taste that too. Excellent
