The Castle of Brolio is an impressive fortress located in the heart of Tuscany. Built in the 12th century, the castle has seen many wars and battles throughout its history.

Today, it stands as a symbol of the power and wealth of the Ricasoli family, one of the most prominent families of medieval Tuscany.

The castle features a classic medieval design with sturdy walls, towers, and ramparts. The interior is equally stunning, with a great hall, a chapel, and several rooms decorated with antique furniture and paintings. You can explore the castle's grounds and take in the breathtaking views of the surrounding vineyards and countryside.

What sets the Castle of Brolio apart from other medieval castles is its connection to wine. The Ricasoli family has been producing wine for over 800 years, and the castle is now surrounded by their vineyards. Taste the family's world-renowned wines in the castle's wine cellar and even purchase a bottle to take home as a souvenir.
