Cellar

A jewel which is 1200 years old

Walk through the subsoil and discover a lost world

 

The cellar of Villa Barberino is thought to date back to 600 AC, when the Longobards built the tower of the castle, whose tracks remain today through all the property. The cellar, dig in the rock and situated underground, is composed of three big rooms and a long passage made in bricks. Its visit is very suggestive and charming, as it contains and treasures 4000 bottles of 850 different labels of the best wines of Tuscany.

 

Many guided wine tastings, poetry’s evening, concertos and meeting are organized here.
