Pasolini Dall’Onda – Barberino Val d’Elsa Farm
Among the many farms of the Pasolini Dall’Onda family, there is the Barberino Val d’Elsa one. It has an extension of about 270 hectares and boasts over four hundred years of winemaking tradition. The heart of the farm is represented by an ancient medieval castle in whose cellars the precious wineries are located. Tuscan traditional wines are still produced and aged here. Apart from the wineries and crusher, on booking, it is possible to visit also the vineyards and the historical gardens of the castle, as well as participate in a guided degustation.

It is extremely arduous to be able to convey at least one-tenth of the emotions one feels when visiting the cellar of Monsanto. The fragrances, the echoes, the silences, the layers of noble moulds render it a unique place worth a visit at least once.
