Olive groves and vineyards all around us with their precious oil and wine: Sangiovese, Tiratari, Psyco, Spaziolibero.Rows and rows of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Shiraz are well cared for with love and passion with respect for nature and environmental sustainability. The countryside is unique as it has remained unaltered for ages and deserves to be discovered, enjoyed and… tasted.

I have found that some tours can be rather than exhausting, long and boring - this was refreshing, surprisingly interesting and just the right amount of time. The owner tells his wonderful story surrounded by lovely furnishings, architecture and a magical history. I highly recommend!

We went to Villa La Ripa as part of a wine tasting tour while taking a cooking class vacation at Tuscookany in August of 2013. The owner (a practicing neurosurgeon) gave us a tour of the villa which is a historic building. The wine tasting was in a large elegant hall and very educational. His wines won various international awards.... More

I had the pleasure of visiting Villa La Ripa during an excursion with my Tuscookany cooking class in mid-July. The owner of this historical masterpiece is a local Physician who took time out of his incredibly busy medical practice to give us a tour of his home and vineyard. The Villa has been located on the Chianti slopes of Arezzo... More

we enjoyed a tour and wine tasting here on our Excursion day from our cooking school, Casa Ombuto. Our handsome owner and guide, the ancient villa, the incredible wines, the spectacular vineyards, all contributed to a most amazing part of our journey in Italia! Still enjoying the wine here in Oregon. Grazie mille!

As part of an excursion day, we toured the family vineyard of Villa La Ripa and met the owner Dr. Saverio Luzzi, a most charming and knowledgeable host. We purchased a case of Psyco after having the most remarkable tour of Dr. Luzzi’s villa.... More

Great place. Wonderful host. Superior wine. We were enthralled by our host and the history of the villa. You will miss something of the real Tuscany if you pass this up.

Wow! This was such a treat. We had a private tour by the owner, who is a neurologist by day... His wife is also a doctor... Smart passionate people! The villa is amazing and they have painstakingly preserved the original building and have marvelous stories to go with. The wine is excellent, and the passion of Luzzi Saverio makes it... More
