Our Philosophy: From the Land to the Harvest
At Castiglion del Bosco, the soil is worked to preserve and perfect each single vine. Our philosophy is that every intervention is tailored to each parcel of land.
Castiglion del Bosco has been organic-certified since 2016.
The Stunning Winery
The modern, functional winery extends across two floors and is perfectly at one with the hill slope, almost hidden amidst the poplar and beech trees. The natural selection done in the vineyard is perfected at the winery. The grapes are transferred by gravity into 60-100 quintal tanks, in which fermentation takes place separately according to the various vineyard lots. Once fermentation is complete, the wines begin their refinement in wooden barrels.
Castiglion del Bosco was a founding member of the Brunello di Montalcino Consortium, one of the first Italian wines to achieve DOC and DOCG status.
The Castiglion del Bosco range embraces the two local appellations Rosso di Montalcino DOC and Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, also as the prized single-vineyard Campo del Drago and Zodiac Limited Edition as well as Riserva Millecento, only produced in exceptional vintages.
The IGT Toscana Chardonnay and Vin Santo Occhio di Pernice San Michele complete the wine portfolio. In true Tuscan tradition, Castiglion del Bosco also produces Extra-Virgin Olive Oil, Honey and Grappa del Drago.
Castiglion del Bosco is recognized for its top-tier winery hospitality.
Named as one of the top ten wineries to visit in Tuscany by international wine magazine Decanter, Castiglion del Bosco offers cellar tours and tailored tastings, a way of exploring Tuscany at its most beautiful, where the spontaneity of nature, a trust in tradition, culture and craftsmanship meet attention to detail and the height of elegance.
A visit to the stunning Capanna vineyard and tasting a selection of Castiglion del Bosco’s finest wines is a unique experience, ranging from a barrel tasting to Tuscan cheese pairing and even a vertical tasting of old vintages.
