I can't say enough good things about this place. It has breathtaking views. The staff is top notch and our guide Michela is absolutely wonderful. This worth a trip if you are in Siena which is about an hours drive.

I was invited to the Castello Banfi because of a CLANTE dinner and wine tasting. What an incredible experience to see the grounds, visit the wineries and enjoy a magnificent evening of dining. I'd go out of my way to return to this area.
