NIGHT/ROOM

Castello Banfi il Borgo is a small luxury hotel on the Mariani family's award-winning vineyard and winery near Montalcino in the Brunello region of Tuscany. Set on a 7,100 acre estate, the former workers' quarters attached to the castle have been stylishly adorned with classic Tuscan furniture, fabrics and finery, wonderfully-appointed against the original features of terracotta floors, arches and wood-beamed ceilings. Outside, guests can enjoy a glass of Banfi's finest wine by the outdoor pool, overlooking the vineyards and for dinner, visit the estates restaurants, La Taverna, located in the vaulted cellars which serves delicious traditional Tuscan cuisines alongside, of course, a superb wine list. In addition, wines and regional produce can be enjoyed in the on-site Enoteca-Wine Bar.

To further indulge, take a luxurious in-room ayurveda massage incorporating the nutrient-rich Sangiovese grapes used in the estates wine-production, or visit one of the nearby luxury spas. The historical castle itself hosts a museum and there are plenty of historical and cultural sites in the nearby area for those who want to learn more about this fertile region. The expert concierge can arrange anything, from visits to local towns and vineyards to cycling, shopping trips and cookery classes, great for a romantic weekend or a family tour of Tuscany.

Activities

Tuscany is famous for its food and wine, and guests can enjoy cookery classes and wine-tastings to further discover the flavours of the region. Visit the surrounding vineyards by bike or on a wine tour, and enjoy a trip around Banfi's own cellars and vineyard which produces some of the Italy's finest wines, while the castle's museum of wine and glass explores the history of this superb estate. Further afield, the concierge can arrange excursions to other vineyards and wineries, as well as tours of the nearby hill-top towns, shopping trips, limousine and other rental services, or for real car enthusiasts, Ferrari rentals. Golf enthusiasts can have a tailor-made golf itinerary drawn up, to make sure they get the most out of the regions' courses, with the nearest just over an hour's drive away. Banfi il Borgo also has a small fitness area with Technogym equipment. Whatever you want to do in Tuscany, the friendly staff are here to help, while for those who want to simply lie back and relax, spend the day by the outdoor pool with a good book, before an in-room massage or spa treatment or a visit to one of the wonderful local spas and therapeutic baths.

Dining

La Taverna serves traditional Tuscan dishes in Castello Banfi il Borgo's vaulted cellars, formerly used for wine casks and now lined with sturdy wooden tables where guests can enjoy 3 to 5-course tasting menus or choose from the a la carte menu, all served with a wonderful list of wines. The Enoteca-Wine Bar serves wines from the estate with an optional plate of regional bread, cheese and salami. You can also buy a selection of locally-produced pastas, olive oils and balsamic vinegar (as well as ceramics, wools, soaps, wine glasses and books) from this shop-style bar. For breakfast, enjoy an a la carte Tuscan breakfast with eggs to order.
