Castello di Meleto has been welcoming those arriving to Gaiole in Chianti since 1256. A perfect fusion between the past and future, the castle is a superb expression of authentic Tuscany. Castello di Meleto produces prestigious wines as well as extra virgin olive oil and raises the heritage pig breed, Cinta Senese.

The land of Castello di Meleto extends across 2400 acres, of which 400 are dedicated solely to vineyards.

The bees are at the centre of a new conservation project “Nel nome dell’Ape” of Castello di Meleto and Viticola Toscana, with the aim of tripling the existence of these insects in the area in the next period. Inviting people to adopt a hive, the company aims to encourage a wider return of this precious insect to the territory of Gaiole in Chianti and neighboring areas.
The 20 hives of the property provide a quality organic honey and it is the intention to triple the number of families in the near future, in order to support the biodiversity of the territory and a global heritage of sustainable development.

The pressing of the olives is one of the most magical moments, when the oil mill fills with fragrances and the expectations of a year´s production are condensed. Castello di Meleto´s Extra Virgin Olive Oil is the result of a lot of work that begins on the plant, with organic cultivation, and continues with the harvest, exclusively by hand.

Today Castello di Meleto is an authentic oasis where you can spend unforgettable moments surrounded by the Tuscan hills, a magical place where good wine, good food, nature and relaxation meet to create unique memories.
