“Wine tasting and guided tour”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

We went for the combined tour and lunch which was a nice experience. The guide Maria was a bit over the top with some lame jokes, but if you could see through that, you got a nice light story of the wine making process and the castle. The view is fantastic and so is their garden and wine cellars. We ended up in their dining room where we had a nice lunch and tasted four different wines and their fantastic balsamic winegar.

“Very Good”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

We did the 16 Euro wine tasting tour and it is well worth it. For that you get a very fun and informative tour of the winery and a good tasting of their excellent wines, olive oil and balsamic vinegar. There is a lot of history at the winery - Verrazzano discovered New York, apparently. Our two children enjoyed the tour as well.

“An Absolute Dream”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Even though we showed up during a massive downpour... it didn't stop us from having an amazing tour and lunch. We met some great people and had a delicious lunch of pasta, wild boar, Cheeses and salamis and plenty of delicious wine. The lunch tour is a must if you visit. Worth every euro

“Castello di Verazzano”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

We drove a quick 45 minutes down SS226 - very pretty - to visit this charming vineyard (recommended in the IBook "Driving in Tuscany - Dreamdays in Chianti"). They were a bit short staffed, so we were delayed and ended up passing on the tour at 3PM in favor of a leisurely lunch tasting four wines at our table.

The service was very relaxed and attentive. While we were waiting to be seated, we were served some pleasant prosecco and sat on the veranda until a table opened up. I think it was a combination of all the tables for four being occupied by twosomes, and also the fact that they did not want to seat us until they could serve us. The tour guide - English lady who has live in Tuscany for 44 years - made sure were situated with the wine tasting.

This is such a relaxing way to spend a few hours, eating, drinking, chatting.....

“Breathtaking Views, Amazing Service”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

We were blown away by the beauty and the scenery during our trip to Castello di Verrazzano. We rented a scooter in Florence and did the hour-long ride to Greve in Chianti and it was incredible. It's exactly what we had imagined when we booked our trip to Italy. We got a little lost and showed up late for the tour, but the staff were very accommodating and still made the visit special. They incorporated tips on wine tasting to go with the light meal (which was more than enough food and extremely delicious). Highly recommend!
