Friendly, knowledgeable staff with a nice atmosphere. Of course the wines were enjoyable and the views fantastic. Although we arrived without a booking they were very pleasant and helpful in providing a tasting. A little challenging to get to but well worth the effort. We purchased and shipped several bottles. This was my first experience shipping wines from Italy so... More

We were not disappointed in this winery or its wines. A fascinating family story as well. Although I did not order any to be shipped I bought two... More

Our host, Allesandra, was very knowledgeable and engaging. This combined with their excellent wines made for a memorable time. I will have a hard... More

Picturesque setting and grounds, wonderful wine and gracious hosts. If you are from the US, better to find a US based distributor of their wines as they are not set up to handle the VAT refund process for individual consumers.

My husband and I were given a recommendation to visit this lovely vineyard from a neighboring property. We arrived having no reservation but they were able to accommodate us. Allesandra was so wonderful, she spent about an hour talking with us about their wines and other wines from Italy. I would highly recommend this property just based on their hospitality... More
