  • Destination winery and restaurant on premise
  • Central location in prime vineyard area
  • Sweeping countryside views


Located within the popular oenophile destination of the award-winning medieval Castello Banfi, near Montalcino, the 14-room Borgo still manages to provide a surprising level of serenity. The property, which opened in 2007, features an elegant, terraced pool, separate stone-cottage suites, some of which come with such details as brick arches, and sweeping vineyard views.

The Borgo’s most appealing asset, however, may very well be its proximity to the winery and Taverna restaurant, with its multi-course wine-paired menus. Guests can swill and sample many vintages without concern, knowing they don’t need to drive back to the Borgo’s guestrooms. Instead, they can stroll back to the accommodations, which come with large plush beds and modern bathrooms with ceramic-tiled glass showers.

Who Should Stay

Il Borgo is a terrific crash pad for Tuscany wine lovers.
