Tour & Tasting

01

WINE MAKING CELLAR
Here is where the production process starts: it is where, after the harvest, the grapes start becoming wine

02

MATURATION CELLAR
In the ancient underground basement of Castello di Poppiano the wine rests and matures in large oak barrels or barriques.

03

OIL MILL
From the cellars of the Castle you go up the stairs toward the oil mill to get acquainted with the processing of the Castello di Poppiano olives to obtain a first class extra virgin olive oil.

04

PASSERILLAGE RAISINING FOR VINSANTO
Going up towards the main tower of the castle before entering the “Vinsantaia” we visit the “passerillage of Malvasia” (the trellis racks where the Malvasia grapes are dried) for the production of Vinsanto.

05

VINSANTO WINERY IN THE MAIN TOWER
Climbing up in the tower, to the top, we are in the rare “Vinsantaia of the Castle”, four floors where Vinsanto ferments and slowly ages in old barrels.

06

PANORAMIC VIEW FROM THE TOP OF THE TOWER
From the top of the tower there is the most spectacular view over the surrounding vineyards and olive groves of Castello di Poppiano. At wider range an unforgettable 360° view extends over the landscape of the gently sloping, rolling Chianti Colli Fiorentini hills, one after the other.

07

TASTING
We offer a tasting of the most representative wines from Castello di Poppiano, from Massi di Mandorlaia (the estate in Maremma) and from Belvedere Campòli in Chianti Classico.

08

WINE SHOP
After tasting, a stop at the wine shop will allow you the opportunity to purchase, from “the source”, the wines and extra virgin olive oil from the three Conte Guicciardini estates.
