We had lunch and a fabulous tour . The food was amazing, the views were incredible, the staff was wonderful. An easy walk from San Gimignano. It was much more reasonable that similar offers. I ordered Olive Oil for gifts to be shipped.

I went there when staying in Florence. As I was not driving a car, I took a one day tour to the winery. Great idea ! The place and the people were so nice! We were very friendly received. The wines, as almost all tuscany wines great ! It was such an amazing experience.

I found this place while researching Tuscany and had to come here before going to the beautiful city of San Gimignano. This winery, like many in Tuscany, is only convenient if you have your own car. Th views from the winery are spectacular and will present many photo ops. Fausto was our guide, and he was friendly and funny. He... More

This was one of our favourite days in Italy! Stunning location overlooking the Tuscan countryside, beautiful wines matched perfectly with our lunch, and Barbara was an absolute delight.

This is a lovely spot on your Toscano vacation. You really feel like an insider as Barbara will teach you about the DOCG wine certification and serve you some amazing Ribolitta. The wine tasting includes a beautifully presented lunch. After the tasting, we walked the 20 minutes or so up to San Gamingnano. A wonderful afternoon!

As a tour group we attended a cooking class, this was one of the best experiences in my life, to make pasta, gnocchi and Tiramisu, then to eat your own creations, drink good wine laugh with friend and experience this on an Italian wine farm - must be heaven on earth - I will visit again

Where do i begin...:-) My daughter and i were in the Tuscan region in July and prior to our journey, she found a cooking class here that sounded interesting and the winery sounded yummy too... So we did it! The best homemade pasta sauce, tagliatelle and gnocchi! Fausto and his wife, their entire staff including Nona that came to pick... More

We visited the winery for a tour and lecture. Our guide, Fausto, one of the owners, was pleasant and informative. We had lunch there, which was one of the most memorable meals we had in Italy. Fresh, delicious, very Tuscan. We loved their wines, which we sampled over lunch. Can't wait for our wine and olive oil to be delivered... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this agribusiness, We did make a reservation via email which was easy. The location is lovely. This is not a huge estate, it is a family owned and operated. Barbara was our knowledgeable and friendly hostess. We also met Fausto the owner. Our tour and lunch lasted about 2 hours. We had a lovely... More
