                              Why the Owner Chose Castelnuovo Berardenga:
                              Lovers of the countryside , my wife and I for many years were looking for a special place for a vacation home. In 1999 we had the good fortune to find and purchase La Casa del Poggio, this corner of paradise where we spend most of our spare time. Hoping to retired there someday, now we enjoy sharing with our guests what we consider a marvelous treat. The beautiful Villa Arceno wine and olive oil Estate is the setting of our villa where we feel at home, in peace and relaxation but also surrounded by the amazing Tuscan enviroment with its immense history, culture and traditions.
