Castello Selvole, a Dream Came True with the Beginning of the Winery
Castello Selvole is a dream realized of a husband and wife duo, Guido Busetto and Nobuko Hashimoto. Winemaking was a great passion of theirs for quite a long time and after 25 years of careers in journalism, they purchased this winery in the majestic hills of Chianti Classico. Castello di Selvole Winery is surrounded by forests, vineyards, and expansive olive groves. There are also stretches of country roads which are protected by the local authorities for their historical value and known for hosting the annual Eroica event, a cycle race in the past.
