CASTELLO DI ORGIALE CASTELNUOVO BERARDENGA (SI) Castello di Orgiale
The history of the castello began round about the year 840. Then 1070 the Berardengha Family built the first tower of the castle. Many times destroyed and rebuilt during the bitter wars between Siena and Florence. A new tower was built at the beginning of the 13th century along with new fortifications and surrounding buildings. After centuries, these structures can still be seen today, restored and brought back to life. Within the historic walls of the castle, surrounded by ancient cypress trees, await eight refined apartments in the Tuscan Style (70 sqm), each with 3 to 5 beds, bath and a little kitchen. Plus the “Torre” – flat and a little apartment for two above the wine cellars. Just outside the castle you’ll find the swimming pool, situated comfortably in the landscape with a fantastic view of the tuscan hills. You’ll also find at your disposition a breakfast room, an elegant sitting room, furnished in the Liberty Style complete with fireplace, a historical wine cellar and a convention room which hosts 30 – 40 people. From every part of the castle one enjoys a splendid view of Siena and its surroundings. The heart of Tuscany lies in the Chianti. – In its south- east part rests the Castle of Orgiale, near Castelnuovo Berardenga. It’s the real place to live and experience the atmosphere of the Chianti or to reach the most significant historical centers of Tuscany and Central Italy, such as Siena (20 min), Florence (1 h), Pisa (1,5 h) or Rome (2 h). The vineyards belong to the Chianti Classico, historically one of the most prestigious wine production areas of the world. The new cycle of production of the castle’s wine began in 1996, along with the restoration of the ancient village.
