Baron Francesco Ricasoli, the current 32nd Baron, will open the doors to his family apartments in the Castle of Brolio, property of the Ricasoli family since 1141!
The Castle of Brolio is a symbol of Chianti Classico territory and its wines. Baron Francesco Ricasoli will tell us about his family history and how his great-grandfather, Bettino Ricasoli, known as “The Iron Baron”, and Italian Prime Minister just after Italy’s unification, created the first official “recipe” for Chianti Classico wine.
Today Baron Francesco Ricasoli runs the vast estate, keeping his family’s values and wine traditions alive, producing award-winning wines by combining decades of traditional expertise with modern machinery and technology.
Get ready! If you can’t visit the Castle, the Baron will come to your home! It’s time to put your Sunday hat on and polish the silver for a brush with the nobles 🙂
Wine can be shipped to your home!
