FEATURED ON: GREEN WEDDING SHOES
Planning & Coordination by Nomad Republic
Perched on the hills of the coastal region of Maremma in Tuscany, this 11th-century castle seems stolen from a fairy tale. The grounds at the Castello are breathtaking and offer panoramic vistas of the countryside and the Mediterranean sea in the distance. After driving up a dirt road through the estate’s vineyards and olives orchards, stone steps lead you through an archway into a cobbled courtyard. Like in a traditional Italian home, the kitchen is the heartbeat of the house. Everyone can sneak a peek into the vaulted old-style room, where there’s always some excellent cooking going on.
As a matter of fact, cooking enthusiasts can learn how to make traditional pasta or participate in the preparation of the day’s menu with the owner and Chef Aurora. In the same way, wine aficionados are welcomed to roam through the property’s vineyards that produce only a few thousand bottles a year. They can also visit Montalcino, the nearby hilltop village internationally renowned for its wine.
The castle hotel is the ultimate wedding venue, featuring numerous spots for a romantic ceremony, cocktail hour and reception dinner. We could go on and on about what we love about that place. Tell you about the delicious food and the elegant blends of the co-owner Carlo, that are gaining recognition in Italy and the US… But we’ll only tell you that this little piece of heaven has got it all!
