Castiglion Del Bosco: Owned by the famous Ferragamo family, this winery is aesthetically impeccable (as one would expect from a Ferragamo) and the wine is elegant, sophisticated, and unique. Even though it’s known as a newer winery in the region, Castiglion Del Bosco has quickly made a name for itself as one of the best.
Casato Prime Donne: This female run winery was the first winery in the region to be run by a female and have all female staffing. The winery was originally created in 1592 by the Castao family. Now passed down through generations to the current owner, Donatella, the daughter of a wine maker, she realized how taxing it is on the body and how physically demanding it is to make wine. Thus, she used machinery to help her all female staff create some of the best wine in the region. The Prime Donne is the premier wine at the Casato Prime Donne, which is consulted by four female tasters prior to distribution.
While there are hundreds of other Brunello wineries in the area, we obviously couldn’t see them all in one day. Other wineries that were recommended by friends are Poggio Antico, Altesino, Fattoria dei Barbi, and Biondi Santi.
