reviews

The wine tasting at Castello di Selvole in the heart of Chianti, with Alberto as an expert guide, was an extraordinary experience.
Alberto expertly guided the tasting, with an in-depth knowledge of local wines, transmitting passion and curiosity. After an in-depth explanation and chat, we tasted 3 wines and together Alberto served us a very tasty and abundant platter, still continuing to calmly discuss wine.
A very pleasant experience that I recommend to all lovers of wine and the beauty of Tuscany.

The experience was incredible, my husband and I learned a lot about wine and Alberto explained everything to us in a very clear way. We recommend this tasting without hesitation.

I visited the vineyard and the cellar and tasted 3 wines, one better than the other, with some friends and we were all happy, my compliments… you are the best 🍷

Castello di Selvole, a place of peace and relaxation. In the off-season no other guests except us. The lovingly designed facility is simple but clean. The kitchen equipment and the number of dishes still have potential for improvement. All the winery employees were nice, friendly and helpful.
An exclusive wine tour and tasting make your stay here a special experience.
