In 2003 Massimo Ferragamo acquired Castiglion del Bosco and initiated restoration of the estate’s historic sites – renovation of the Borgo and villas, modernization of the facilities, and innovating the winemaking and cellars.
Castiglion del Bosco is recognized for its top-tier winery hospitality, named as one of the top ten wineries to visit in Tuscany.
