Janine was our guide on this wonderful tour of wine and olive oil production and tasting. Janine cheerfully shared her expertise on the production of wine and olive oil from the trees and vines on the castle property. We could have spent more time listening to her, she was a delight! The wines were great and we had a case... More

We arrived around 5:00 pm and had to ring the bell It was answered and we had a nice tasting - several reds, grappa and a dessert wine. The wines were very good. We bought a chianti reserve that we liked. They are expensive compared to other local wineries, but very nice. The view is glorious! Worth a visit.

Castello di Poppiano actually belongs to Count Guicciardini family. Everyone who is interested in the history of Italy knows this name. It was Count Guicciardini, a friend of Machiavelli, who was instrumental in "delivering" Cosimo I to the throne of the first Great Duke of Tuscany half a millennium ago. It was him who wrote "The History of Italy", the... More

A treat to visit and no mass tourism insight! Take a gentle 5 minute from the La Gigliola for a mornings special outing to this lovely place just 5 kms distance and enjoy a coffee in the intimate town of Poppiano before heading to Florence in the afternoon.

I visited Castello di Poppiano as part of an amazing wine tour. The castle itself was beautiful and I really appreciate the fact that it was a functioning private home. We tasted a variety of the lovely wines, as well as the olive oil. I even bought myself some of the peppery Laudemio oil that they produce. We climbed to... More

We were staying just up the road and thought we would explore this imposing and beautiful castle. And what a treat. The guide was so infectiously passionate about the "green gold", the local olive oil and rightly so. It is delicious. Wine tasting at 11am was also quite lovely. The signature label, La Historia Di Italia, has a special connection... More

We've done the one hour tour and loved the enthousiasm and passion of the tourguide for their locally produced wines and olive oil. The view from the tower is stunning.

Visiting this winery/castle/olive oil site was fun, interesting, and well-worth experiencing. Because we were with Tuscany Bike Tours, it was part of the tour. I am not sure how one arranges to see it without a guide. The grounds are beautiful, and the view from the tower are breathtaking. Tuscany is more gorgeous in-person, and the Castello di Poppiano is... More

The pure beauty of this fairytale castle (which belongs to the legendary Guicciardini family from 12th century) is an excellent reason to come. Their wines (good or very good) and olive oil (among the best in a whole Italy) are another. Gorgeous experience!
