Wine and Olive Oil
Out of more than 60 properties in the province of Siena, Castello di Casole was singled out as a Model Game Reserve for its thriving vegetation and animal populations, including hare, pheasant and deer. Within this setting, Castello di Casole’s 88 acres, or 41 hectares, of working vineyards surround the residences growing SanGiovese, Cabernet, Merlot and Petit Verdot grapes. The wine – Dodici – is produced by winemaker Piero Incisa della Rocchetta in limited quantities for Owners and their guests. Owners can get involved in all aspects of the winemaking process and enjoy special winemaker dinners, tastings and pairings for a very unique vintners experience. The estate also produces an extra virgin olive oil which is also available for owners’ enjoyment.

Fractional ownership residences optimize investment in a holiday property, as Owners purchase only the time they are going to be physically present in the residence. Fractional ownership allows you to scale your investment to match the demands of your lifestyle. Having said this at Castello di Casole there are also whole ownership alternatives. It is up to you to decide what option best reflects your lifestyle and desires.
