History

Castiglion del Bosco is a founding member of the Brunello di Montalcino Wine Consortium, which in 1967 was one of the earliest Italian wines to earn Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC) and Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG) status. The Castiglion del Bosco or walled castle in the wood was built about 800 years ago in the typical mediaeval style. At the beginning of the 13th century the Cacciaconti family originally from Siena added stone walls around the castle for further security. The walls can still be seen today with the stone tower.
