And when you do ask for Vincenzo! We had a great afternoon. New the history of the winery and family! He was so nice and accommodating! Explained the process of being organic, aging and storing wine etc. Prefect tasting and light lunch, our guide forgot to let him know that there were 2 vegetarians in the group and he jumped up and had to new lunches prepared on the spot. Also made my 15 year old nephew feel like he was part of the group!

We reserved a tour and wine tasting for a group of 16 back in 2016. It was an amazing experience. We purchased several cases of their wine and have been waiting in anticipation for our return in Sept of 2018.

Thank Esteban P

We reserved a private "Special Wine Tasting" which took place at the Villa , not the wine shop. My wife and I are visiting Tuscany to celebrate her birthday and I thought this would be something special. It was not. Just a very ordinary tasting of their range of wines with a couple of extra "special wines" thrown in. The appetizers served with the wine were mediocre. Our guide seemed distracted and unfocused. Pleasant but his heart was not in it and he was just going through the motions. Very overpriced at 60 euro per couple. Fortunately we have had a lot of other good experiences on our trip, but we would not recommend this.

Dear friends,
I'm sorry that you didn't appreciate the Wine Tour and Private Tasting.

€ 30 per person (Vat incl.) is the price for two people,
with Special Wine Tasting of 5 wines.

SPECIAL WINE EXPERIENCE (Tour & Tasting with Tuscan Snacks)
Guided Tour and Tasting of Five Wines of the first line,
among which an "Old Vintager" of Chianti Classico Riserva & Supertuscan (Limited Edition).
Organic Olive Extra Virgin Olive Oil DOP
Bread with Extra Virgin Olive Oil DOP, Focaccia with Sliced ham, Tuscan Cheese.
- Fixed price for 2 persons: € 60,00 (Vat incl.)
- Price per person, starting from 3 pax: € 25,00 (Vat incl.)
Time: about an hour & forty-five minutes

Maybe I was tired, and I'm sorry, but unfortunately I was alone and
after two hours I had to run for another Wine Tour. My job is a race! :(
I hope the Company take on more staff.

If you return to Tuscany, I hope to have the opportunity to offer you a better and all inclusive Wine Experience. You'll be our guests.
Maybe it's better in the morning! :)
