History

Castello di Volpaia takes its name from the enigmatic 11th century walled village where the winery is based. Despite its ancient roots, the winery has blossomed in recent years thanks to the vision and hard work of Carlo and Giovannella Mascheroni who were given the property as a wedding gift in the 1970s. The couple have completely modernised the winery and replanted much of the estate vineyards, all while preserving the charm of the historic winery buildings.
