Barone Ricasoli’s charming former cellars will host also this year the historic and Eroica along with mementos, woolen sweaters, posters and a number of vintage accessories. Come visit the display along with our cellars!
After the visit, enjoy a tasting of Barone Ricasoli wines, with an aperitif at EROICA CAFFE’ BROLIO recently open and a stopover at the Osteria del Castello Restaurant for lunch.

And Sunday, 1 October, the heroic Eroica cyclists who undertake the 209 km long ride will be gifted with a bottle of Barone Ricasoli wine, as per tradition. For this year, we’ve chosen Brolio Bettino 2015, our wine dedicated to Bettino Ricasoli, who first conceived the formula for Chianti wine (now called Chianti Classico). This wine has just received the important three-glass rating in the Gambero Rosso 2018 guide!

We look forward to welcoming you here!
