    Virkelig god og autentisk vinoplevelse med fantastisk guide, indlevende fortællinger krydret med hands-on erfaringer. Og lækre specialiteter af egen avl og udsøgte vine i selve vinsmagningen.

    We got married at Castello del Trebbio recently and used the castle tour and wine tasting event as a 'welcome dinner' for 60 people. It exceeded our expectations. Alberto is amazing, and told the story of the history of the castle in a funny, charming and interesting way, the guests were all enamoured by him. The castle itself is set in stunning rolling Tuscan vineyards so is a must-visit if you're staying in Florence. The wine itself is gorgeous, and we opted to do a buffet dinner cooked by the family who live there which was really amazing, lots of different dishes but all made using high quality, simple indegredients. We have found recipes online to recreate them at home. Overall I would definitely recommend doing any of the tours or cooking classes at Castello Del Trebbio, the views, food, wine and company are outstanding and we will definitely be back. Grazie Alberto!

    Castello del Trebbio is really the most perfect wedding location you can imagine! The weekend of the 15th of August we stayed with them with 38 guests on this fantastic location. In advance we had a lot of contact with Alberto (from the location) and Sabrina (from the restaurant) about our dream wedding and literally they thought about (and helped us with) every small detail. They respond also very quick on emails, which is great! Alberto helped us out finding the best photographers, florist, DJ, etcetera. He is the most nice and warm man you have ever met! Unfortunately we had to postpone our wedding from May till August because of Covid, but everybody helped us out with everything. On Friday afternoon our guests arrived from the Netherlands and we were welcoming them with a glass of sparkling wine of Castello del Trebbio themselves! Later in the afternoon Alberto gave us a castle tour, followed by a great wine tasting in the most amazing tasting room! After this we organised a Lasagne party at the largest villa, where Sabrina and her crew catered the best lasagne! Saturday was our wedding day. The ceremony took place in the castle, so beautiful! After the ceremony we went to the castle garden to make a toast and enjoy the aperitifs that Sabrina’s team prepared. We crossed the road to the restaurant and enjoyed the most amazing 6 course menu, all cooked with local ingredients and guided with the best wines of Castello del Trebbio. A great shout out to Sabrina and her crew for organizing, everything went very smoothly. We would recommend this location to everybody without any doubt! They have really treated us like family and we’re looking forward to visit them again soon!

    Interessante viaggio nella storia accompagnato da un altrettanto interessante assaggio dell'enogastronomia contemporanea. Storia, tradizione, ricerca e innovazione si fondono per esaltare eccellenze del territorio. Grazie per l'esperienza

    Come Virgilio accompagna Dante nei gironi dell’inferno, così anche Alberto è stato un’ottima guida lungo il nostro viaggio, partendo dal giardino, passato per la cantine e le antiche prigioni, fino a finire nella sala della Congiura contro i Medici e in quella degustativa. Ottimo ambiente, ottimo cibo e soprattutto ottimo vino. Usciamo molto arricchiti dalle nozioni e dalle emozioni di questo castello, consiglio a tutti il nostro tour per portare avanti questa meravigliosa storia, grazie anche a tutte le persone dietro le quinte.

    Iniziare il nostro weekend con la visita a questo castello è stato fantastico. La degustazione ottima e la visita al castello davvero incantevole.

    Solo arrivare fuori dalle mure del Castello ti fà respirare profumo di storia. Abbiamo avuto un tour guidato( con pacchetto Smartbox) del Castello stesso sia l'interno che le fantastiche cantine e degustazione finale dei vini di produzione propria. Siamo rimasti veramente inebriati da tutto ciò che circonda il Castello e dal senso di pace e rilassamento che porta

    The Castello del Trebbio is beautiful and really interesting to tour. The wines are delicious and they give you snacks to enjoy while tasting. One of our favorite parts of the trip. Scenery is breathtaking and we bought almost all of our souvenirs to take home from here. We used their transportation and it was flawless, they pick you up right from your Air Bnb.

    Castello del Trebbio absolutely exceeded our expectations! We had seen the photos on the internet, but pictures did not do the beauty of the castle and surrounding area justice. You have to see it in person to appreciate the beauty. From the moment we arrived, Alberto made our stay truly memorable. We were fortunate to have hired the entire venue for our wedding, including the many villas for our guests as we are from Australia and wanted our guests to enjoy a few days with us. Alberto was our host for a fabulous Castle tour with wine tasting, followed by a pre-wedding dinner at the restaurant where we enjoyed lovely authentic Italian food and more fabulous wine from the Castle vineyard. Our wedding day was unforgettable! The courtyard ceremony was like a fairytale and our reception dinner in the wine cellar was intimate and classically beautiful. The 7 course dinner was absolutely delicious and the wine flowed freely all evening. Our guests raved about the quality and quantity of the dinner and loved the traditional milliefoglie wedding cake. We also enjoyed a post wedding brunch the following day with guests then retiring to the villas for some relaxation time by the pool. The villas were well equip, combining modern features with original charm. The mini wine cellar in each villa was a great touch too. Alberto went above and beyond to ensure we had everything we needed and nothing was too much trouble. He personally ensured our wedding day was perfect and all the staff at Castello del Trebbio were amazing. We cannot wait to return to the castle for our wedding anniversary. Thank you so much Alberto for your hospitality - you are an absolute super star! Grazie Mille - Lisa and Harry xx
