About Us

Ensconced alongside a medieval castle and surrounded by vineyards, fruit orchards and forest, Castello Banfi Il Borgo offers a peaceful, enchanting escape at a working vineyard.Castello Banfi Il Borgo is located in the southwest corner of the designated Brunello di Montalcino growing area, 16 kilometers west of the small city of Montalcino, and 70 kilometers south of Siena.
Choose from one of 14 elegant rooms housed in stone buildings that surround the hilltop Castello; the medieval fortress, historically known as Poggio alle Mura, in the 17th and 18th centuries when it became safe to live outside of the thick walls and locked gates but prudent to be close for protection.Each room and suite of Il Borgo (small stone buildings village) features breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside and charming details including wooden ceiling beams, terracotta tiled floors, brick arches and complimentary estate wines.Guestrooms feature free Pay-per-View TV and Wi-fi, valuables safe, and a complimentary well-stocked mini bar with water and beverages.Well-equipped bathrooms feature professional hair driers, towel warmers, large showers with oversized rainfall heads; several have an additional bathtub, and bath amenities. Each spacious room is painted and furnished in a different color scheme and appointed with eclectic themed artwork; several include a separate dressing area, writing desk and breakfast table.
Castello Banfi has two restaurants at its vineyard estate in Montalcino, Tuscany, offering formal and casual takes on local cuisine. Dining rooms in a historic stone building offer breathtaking views of the rolling Tuscan countryside, with patios for al fresco dining in the shade of the medieval castle. The Taverna restaurant is open for lunch both to visitors and hotel guests who wish a more informal option; La Sala dei Grappoli restaurant is open for dinner, in an elegant ambience.Tucked in a quiet corner of the Borgo, an arched room has been set aside to greet the morning with full buffet breakfast, featuring freshly brewed coffee, tea, home baked delicacies and other traditional dishes.
The Reading Room offers a quiet space between the castle’s porticoed courtyard and is furnished with backgammon and chess tables, a small library of the family’s favorite novels and travelogues, comfortable furniture and a warming hearth.Formally planted gardens and a shading pergola provide a tranquil outdoor space in a sun drenched lower courtyard of the Borgo, with dramatic views of the river valley and hills that roll gently toward the sea.The reception area within Il Borgo was once a meeting place for residents who would gather to exchange news and information; today it continues that role in updated fashion for our Guests.
Behind the castle’s western wall, an outdoor heated swimming pool is laid into the hillside overlooking lush vineyards and enjoys an envious vantage point for dramatic Tuscan sunsets.An elliptical machine, exercise bicycle and free weights are suited to allow interested guests to continue their normal fitness routine while visiting Castello Banfi.
From among a wide range of customized activities, our concierge can set up cooking lessons, horseback riding; hot air balloon; massages to be enjoyed in the privacy of Guests';suites, hiking and cycling itineraries on the estate and its surroundings; arrange for scenic tours of nearby towns, villages and cities; organize shopping expeditions.
The vineyards are our soul; the winery is our heart. They combine to create one of nature’s most wholesome foods. Healthy grapes yield the purest wines; sulfites and histamines are reduced, creating more organic and taste appealing wines.Our state-of-the-art winery was created to handcraft our wines with advanced technology in lieu of chemistry. Dedicated winemaking: rotary, cask and barrel fermenting, cooling tanks and gravity feed work in tandem. Nitrogen bottling reduces sulfites. Thousands of prime oak barriques selected for the tightest grain and seasoned for an exceptional three years are gently toasted for an hour over a low flame to impart mellow softness.
Castello Banfi Il Borgo offers cooking and wine classes.Our winemakers and sommeliers are available to reveal the character, nuances and origins behind the wines created in our vineyards and nurtured in our winery. At the same time, because wine goes hand in hand culturally with the produce and cuisine of this land, our chefs and their home cook counterparts reveal their skills and their secrets.

Best of the Best

A 7,000-acre, family-owned vineyard estate and winery in the Brunello region, 40 miles from historic Siena, the Castello Banfi has its origins as an ancient Etruscan settlement and as a Romanesque Renaissance castle that merited mention by Dante. Its 14 rooms offer privileged privacy and comfort with king-size beds, fine furnishings and fabrics. The well-appointed bathrooms boast rain showers and deep tubs and feature amenities made from the estate’s Sangiovese grapes. The Tuscan restaurant La Taverna is open for lunch and gourmet restaurant Sala dei Grappoli for dinner, which is served alfresco on the terrace in the summer.

Castello Banfi Il Borgo was absolutely perfect.  Everyone was extremely nice and accommodating.  The cooking class was so much fun and it was nice to be able to interact with other guests.  The only negative (and it was just a small annoyance and nothing to do with the hotel staff) was that the wifi would turn off if you left it alone for 5 minutes... you would have to login in again.
