Great experience and kind guides!

The wine tour and tasting was really interesting, listening to rich family history and seeing where the wine is produced. We loved it! The ambient is perfect Tuscany view, old village house, the food and drinks are extremely tasty and homemade, we enjoyed every second of it! Had a time to relax and enjoy the nature, to take pictures, to taste everything they offered and would definitely reccomand!

Esperienza simpatica

Nonostante il tempo incerto la visita al castello Sonnino è stata molto piacevole, questo dovuto anche alla simpatia e alla passione della guida che ci ha mostrato il Castello e le sue cantine. Bellissimo l'essiccatoio delle uve destinate al vinsanto, era la prima volta che ne vedevo uno. Aperitivo e degustazione di vino piacevole. Consigliato.

Good People and Even Better Wine

The place is beautiful and the guide is very prepared, and passionate about his job.
Had the gourmet experience and it was completely worth it. We bought a couple bottles as well. If you love red wine, the San Leone is the best.
They were also very quick at answering emails, which is always a plus

Esperienza stupenda

Abbiamo passato un ottima Esperienza al Castello Sonnino. La degustazione e il pranzo piacevole in un contesto stupendo.
La proprietaria Virginia super simpatica!

L'insalata per provare l'agresto!

Amazing and Memorable Experience

We had such an amazing experience at the Castle Sonnino wine tasting. We opted for the Tasting and Lunch option, which gave us a fantastic selection of local foods and an (very filling) lunch, accompanied with some gorgeous wines (we 1 white, 2 reds and a dessert wine), and our sommelier Edouardo was so helpful and answered all our questions regarding the wine. Our lunch was followed by a tour, where we got to see the beautiful view of the vineyards and were taken around the cellars where we were informed about all the wines in production there and the history. This was an incredible value for money and would definitely recommend. We had such a great time, and we wanted to thank the Sonnino family and Edouardo for making the experience!

Castello Sonnino wine tasting

Wij komen uit Nederland. We logeren vlakbij Kasteel Soninno. Het leek ons leuk om daar een rondleiding met een wijnproeverij te doen!
We zijn heel vriendelijk ontvangen , rondgeleid en meegenomen in de geschiedenis van het Kasteel.
Daarna heerlijk de wijntjes geproeft! Met bij behorende hapjes.....echt van genoten.
Bij elkaar duurde het zo'n twee uur. Leerzaam, gezellig en lekker!!

Excellent guide!

This wine-tasting was a bit different from other tastings. We had one glass at a time and no chance of going back to the others for comparison.
The food was good.
The guide took us for a quick tour which was very interesting and informative. Thank you for a nice visit.
Why did I give the tasting only three out of five? We couldn’t compare with prior tasted wines and the glasses needed a better wash. (We had to change some before the tasting).
Thank you


Esperienza gourmet

Posto meraviglioso, ottimo vino e personale gentile. Consigliatissimo. Torneremo ad visitare il castello

Ottima esperienza

Accoglienza cordiale, Il nostro percorso prevedeva la degustazione di alcuni loro vini accompagnati da salumi e formaggi e la visita alle cantine.
Purttoppo non è stato possibile accordarsi per la visita al castello ma ci torneremo.


Esperienza bellissima

Abbiamo fatto questa bellissima esperienza io e mia moglie. Visita alle cantine del castello Sonnino molto bella ed interessante, per la degustazione dei vini abbiamo scelto l’opzione col pranzo, davvero ottimo, accompagnato da vini davvero superlativi e raccontati in maniera ineccepibile dalla nostra guida del posto. Consiglio vivamente


Il castello Sonnino offre una bellissima vista sulle colline di Montespertoli. La visita è stata piacevole e anche gli antipasti toscani molto buoni. Dettagliata la spiegazione dei vini.

Punterei su un primo piatto un po’ più ricercato per quanto riguarda il menu con degustazione 3 vini e pranzo.

Il Vino

È stata una esperienza unica. Io e mia moglie siamo stati accolti nel Castello
Sarebbe carino pensare di fare una passeggiata anche tra le vigne che si ammirano dal castello.

It is great place regarding the history,...

It is great place regarding the history, Machiavelli lived in the place for while, his family banner still on the tower inside, Sonnino was Italian PM signed on The Treaty of Versailles, for the wine tour it was good, not as good as I expect, not as bad as I do not recommend, but I highly recommend to buy the Castello Sonnino bottel, it is not the highest of the production, but I like moore than other bottles they have.

Enoteca e vendita diretta. Ottime degustazioni guidate...

Enoteca e vendita diretta. Ottime degustazioni guidate di vino ed olio con prodotti locali. Posto e vista mozzafiato, sopratutto dalla terrazza della vinsantaia.
Da vedere la cantina monumentale che ha più di 300 anni.

Über das Weingut und die Weine

The de Renzis Sonnino family has been living in the rooms of the Castello di Montespertoli since the beginning of the nineteenth century when it was purchased by Isacco. It was the home of the great statesman Sidney Sonnino during the years of his government. In 1987 the arrival of Baron Alessandro and Baroness Caterina de Renzis Sonnino, with their children Virginia and Leone, marked the start of a new phase in the life of the Castle. Conservative renovation work, a commitment to the protection of the historic-cultural heritage and the revival of the winegrowing activity have made the Castello Sonnino one of the most interesting sites and one of the finest producers in Florentine Chianti.King Umberto I, Vittorio Emanuele III, D'Annunzio and Giolitti were just some of the illustrious guests who stayed at Castello Sonnino in the early years of the twentieth century. The Castello di Montespertoli is located in a strategic position, only 20 km from Florence, on the road for Volterra, Certaldo and San Gimignano, and within easy reach of Pisa and Siena. It was in fact originally a customs post between Florentine Chianti and that of Siena. Composed of a number of architectural structures, the oldest parts are the thirteenth-century Tower and chapel. Over the centuries the Castle passed hands between a number of powerful local families until it was purchased by Isacco Sonnino in the nineteenth century. It is now a Historic Dwelling and home to Baron Alessandro and Baroness Caterina de Renzis Sonnino. It conserves precious evidence of the role played by the family during the period of the birth of the Kingdom of Italy.

The Castello Sonnino produces wine guided by the philosophy of the great “Chateaux”, choosing to work only with the grapes grown in its own vineyards, which extend over more than 40 hectares. The Sonnino wines have oodles of personality and character, fruit of the particular features of a terroir which since 1997 has been endowed with the specific denomination of Chianti Montespertoli D.O.C.G, the smallest of the Chianti denominations. The arrival of Baron Alessandro de Renzis Sonnino in 1987 opened up new horizons: the traditional Chianti grape varieties of Sangiovese and Canaiolo were joined by Merlot, Petit Verdot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec.
