Castello di Poppiano is perched on the cascading hills of Tuscany in a small town called Montespertoli. Only a short drive from Florence, it belongs to the Guicciardini family who have housed many Florentine masterpieces since the times of World War II.
Wine Tasting in Castello di Poppiano
I took a bike tour with Tuscany Bike Tours to visit Castello di Poppiano. We drove from their office in Florence and in 40 minutes were around the lush green vineyards, ready for a wine tasting and a visit to the castle.
Poppiano has their own production of olive oil and wine since the 15th century. There also offer several varieties to taste and purchase. Its a quiet part of Tuscany, the castle is quite small but beautiful. Make sure to climb to the top of the castle to see the views. Those tall gorgeous cypress trees are stunning. The bike ride started in the Tuscan hills followed by lunch!
Although I am not fond of riding the bike, I asked them whether I could travel in the van. It was such a fun experience to travel with my guide Lorenzo. He shared so many stories of his time in Tuscany that I will always cherish them!
How to Reach:
Best way to reach this castle is to hire a car or take a tour with Tuscany Bike Tours as I did. This is not a sponsored post. I really enjoyed my time with them.
