Castello di Albola, Radda in Chianti

#4 of 13 in Wineries in Radda in Chianti
The medieval village of Castello di Albola stands on the magnificent Chianti hills, in an unique location known for the charm of its history, the evocative power of art and the unique landscape and rural context of unrivalled harmony.

Throughout the ages the estate has belonged to some of the most noble Tuscan Families, from the Acciaioli and the Samminati to the Pazzi and the Ginori Conti. The winery has now been in the care and protection of the Zonin Family for over 30 years.

Gianni Zonin’s first task was to ensure that the vineyards would produce high quality grapes. Then he restored the outbuildings and the beautiful villa that had been built in the 16th century but maintained in its two massive towers the traces of the original mediaeval castle.

In addition to the restoration of the main villa and of the hamlet, the rural outbuildings have also been refurbished and are now used as accommodation. A new wine cellar has also been built in perfect harmony with the landscape.

The Zonin Family has enlarged both the vineyards and the estate, which today covers 900 hectares, of which 150 are under vines and over 4 thousand olive trees are grown. Find out how to plan Radda in Chianti trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.

  • It was a rainy day, and the restaurant was not operating. Yet, they saw we came from far and they set a table especially for us. The food was absolutely amazing, the service was great and the return for the money was good. For only €30 pp we received a 4-course meal with 4 glasses of wine (one for each course). I strongly recommend visiting here
  • Absolutely lovely, in fact magnificent setting and professional operation. Beautiful. Tour and tour guide was expert and fun. Wine tasting with meat and cheese board was inexpensive. Roads, just be careful.
