For discerning golfers and grape beverage lovers, membership of The Club at Castiglion del Bosco offers unparalleled privacy and a rare opportunity to retreat to the peace and natural beauty of the Val d’Orcia, a Unesco World Heritage Site.
Members and their guests also benefit from invitations to exclusive international events at some of the most prestigious private clubs around the world, hosted by Castiglion del Bosco’s founders and proprietors, Massimo and Chiara Ferragamo.
David Waters, general manager of The Club at Castiglion del Bosco, said: “By creating The Club we are introducing a unique private club experience combining exclusive golf and drinks within an historic, 400-year-old Tuscan estate. In the same way Castiglion del Bosco’s Brunello wines are recognised the world over for their excellence, The Club also has a global presence and our exclusive international golf trips and events will ensure the refined taste of Tuscany is celebrated and savored wherever members come together.”
The golf course at Castiglion del Bosco is one of the finest private courses in Europe and the only Continental European design of Tom Weiskopf. The former Open Champion famously added a short 19th challenge hole, The Brunello Hole, where members play for a Magnum of Brunello.
The estate’s organic-certified vineyards occupy 62 hectares of stunningly beautiful Tuscan hillsides, planted solely with the Sangiovese red grape variety responsible for the sought-after Brunello di Montalcino grape beverages, of which Castiglion del Bosco is now one of the five largest producers. The state-of-the-art winery, named one of the top ten wineries to visit in Tuscany by Decanter magazine, regularly hosts tours and tastings, as well as private social events.
Members of The Club also enjoy privileged access to Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco, a five-star resort and spa within the estate. Offering 23 suites and 11 luxury villas set in restored 17th- and 18th-century farmhouses, it provides convenient accommodation for members, their families and guests during visits to Castiglion del Bosco.
“Under the stewardship of Massimo Ferragamo, Castiglion del Bosco has become an internationally recognized estate,” continued David Waters. “An invitation to membership of The Club at Castiglion del Bosco is a rare opportunity to join a unique private club and global family brought together by a shared passion for exquisite golf, Brunello grape beverage and a love of Tuscany.”
