For luxury travelers in search of satiating their refined tastes and thirst for good wine, an opulent holiday by acres of precious vineyards may be just the thing.
There’s nothing quite as enchanting as waking up in one of the world’s greatest and most majestic wine regions. Gazing out from a well-appointed suite and onto rolling hills of high-quality grape vines is a dream in itself. Add this to dining on superb food paired with an even more superb Pinot noir or Chardonnay, toasting with some of the best bottles of Champagne, or simply sampling the most magnificent vintages—and you have the makings of the wine-lover’s perfect luxury holiday.
Highly lauded and recognized for its excellence in winemaking and hospitality, Castello Banfi – Il Borgo represents everything to love about wine. History, legend and the legendary are mixed together in this luxurious estate.
Towering over its idyllic vineyards, this ancient Tuscan castle-on-a-hill rose in the 1700s. The surrounding stone hamlets provided homes for wine farmers working for their noble landowners. Today, more than 300 years later, the historic architecture may have been unchanged on the outside, but the interiors have undergone a series of renovations to provide all the modern comforts and luxuries.
