About Us

Ensconced alongside a medieval castle and surrounded by vineyards, fruit orchards and forest, Castello Banfi Il Borgo, Relais & Chateaux offers a peaceful, enchanting escape at a working vineyard. The property 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. Each room and suite of Il Borgo (small stone buildings village) features breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside and charming interior details. Guestrooms feature complimentary well-stocked minibars with water and beverages. Well-equipped bathrooms feature towel warmers, large showers with oversized rainfall heads, and bath amenities. Each spacious room is painted and furnished in unique color schemes and appointed with eclectic themed artwork.

Castello Banfi Il Borgo has two restaurants at its vineyard estate in Montalcino, Tuscany, offering formal and casual takes on local cuisine. The Taverna restaurant is open for lunch both to visitors and hotel guests who wish a more informal option; the Michelin Star La Sala dei Grappoli restaurant is open for dinner, in an elegant ambience.

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.

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.

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. Our state-of-the-art winery was created to handcraft our wines with advanced technology in lieu of chemistry.

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 Siena, the Castello Banfi originated as an ancient Etruscan settlement and later became a castle that merited mention by Dante. Its two Deluxe Rooms and 12 suites offer privileged privacy and comfort with king-size beds, fine furnishings, and fabrics. The well-appointed bathrooms boast rainhead showers and deep tubs, and feature products made from the estate’s sangiovese grapes. The Tuscan restaurant La Taverna is open for lunch, and the Michelin star restaurant La Sala dei Grappoli offers dinner, which is served alfresco on the terrace in the summer.

Advisor Tip

The cooking class in the farmhouse is amazing. It’s a beautiful setting and great fun for all ages. –Eileen Spear Boston, Massachusetts

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.

A relaxing stay in a mid-evil castle surrounded by vineyards and orchards. The food was amazing! We also learned to cook a meal, each course paired with the perfect vintage. The wine tour was comprehensive and the most detailed I have ever been on.

Beautiful Banfi

This place was heaven. I’ve been lucky to stay in some beautiful places and this hotel is one of them. Clean, peaceful, luxurious. The staff was top notch. Nothing is too much trouble and always a sincere smile. I would go back tomorrow and would highly recommend Banfi.
