A vineyard set against a magnificent castle, Barone Ricasoli is a unique destination in Siena. The medieval castle proves to be a charming backdrop for the vineyards that produce some delicious, refreshing wine. The castle exchanged hands and went to the Ricasoli family in 1141. Over the centuries the castle has suffered attack and destruction in a number of historical battles, from Aragonese and Spanish attacks during the fifteenth century, to disputes in the seventeenth century right through to bombings and artillery attacks during the Second World War. Today, it serves as a grand reminder of its heritage and acts as an interesting tourist destination. Guided tours are available through the vineyards for visitors. The setup is serene and magical.
