The Castello consists of the impressing tower and attached buildings embedded in a garden with olive trees, cypresses and lavender. It is fully surrounded by a typical tuscan landscape, i.e. vineyards and woods. Following the turmoils of a more than thousand years old history, the castello was forgotten and more of a ruin until today’s landlord, Bernd Gisy, acqired the castello in the middle of the nineties. After intensive reconstruction works in the vineyard, the cellars and ultimately of the residence, the Castello was reopened in September 2000.

The oldest historic documents mention the foundation of the Castello di Orgiale in 840 a.d. Originally meant to serve as a Tower to watch and protect during the intense and lasting battles between the rival provinces Florence and Siena, the site later was owned by the noble langobardian family „dei Berardenga“ . From the beginning of the second millenium, the site was extended by various buildings facilitating farming and crafting. It was far later that a new castello – donating the name to the village Castelnuovo Berardenga was erected in today’s center of the village. At the end of the ghibbelin fights, of which the entire region still gives witness today, the castello became a farming company, Agricola Castello di Orgiale.
