Do you love treasure hunts?  Soon you will be able to try one in the heart of Chianti Classico. The Castello di Meleto has programmed the first “Grande Caccia al Tesoro” in the Castle.

If you can guess the answers to the difficult riddles of “Maga Seregna” and avoid getting caught by the “GigaGemelli”, you will reach the sought after treasure hidden within the fort and go down in history as the first conquerors of the castle.


A treasure hunt for the big and small will allow you to visit the gardens, the rooms on the Piano Nobile (noble floor) and the old winecellars and hear many anecdotes regarding the Castle of Meleto, where you can taste wines, cold cuts and, in occasion of the Festa del Papa, (Italian Father’s Day), the delicious fried rice balls of San Giuseppe.

The hunt begins at 11 AM and again at 3 PM. Cost: 12 Euros a person, couple or family. For info and reservations, call 0577749129 or write to
