The Castelnuovo Castle Estate includes more than 600 hectares that extend over the unique hillsides of Buonconvento between Montalcino and Siena in the renowned Orcia Valley. The nucleus of the Castle includes the fascinating main Villa, an ancient Church, a “Canonica” Vicarage and various central courtyard structures. Many illustrious families left their mark on the vast property and the current owners have maintained and improved the estate for more than a century, always focusing on the traditions and true flavor of Tuscany. The olive groves date back to 1315 and the entire farm upholds organic agricultural methods with cereal and grain, and the delicious extra virgin olive oil production. The Castle also produces very fine wines that can be enjoyed by the guests.
