We’ve always been here, on the Chianti slopes of Arezzo, in the land of Tuscany, at Villa La Ripa, a Renaissance villa not far from Florence and Sienna. 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. It is recommended to all the lovers of wine tourism for unforgettable visits at the winery.

He explained the wine making process quite well and shared interesting details about the selection process they use to ensure the best quality. The wine was very good... More

After seeing all of the 5 star reviews, we decided to see if Villa la Ripa really could be as good as the ratings implied. We were not disappointed! We visited on May 13, 2015. Called at the last minute in the morning to arrange a wine tasting tour in the afternoon, and Cecilia graciously agreed to extend her day... More

This is surely a "DO NOT MISS" attraction. Dr. Luzzi was bitten by the wine bug and while maintaining his medical practice has quickly become a producer of excellent Tuscan Sangiovese and Super Tuscan blend wines. HIs daughter gives a tour of the beautiful Villa that they own and have restored to careful accuracy. The setting is stunning. If you... More

Wow! What an experience!! We are in town on our honeymoon and were very fortunate to visit Dr. Luzzi and his wonderful villa. We had emailed with him and had a very small window of time to see his place. He gladly took time out of his very busy schedule on a Sunday to show us this great place. We... More

Seriously...THANK YOU Trip Advisor! This was one of (maybe the top) highlights of our trip to Tuscany. Dr. Luzzi is a wonderful, passionate man. The time he spent with us was priceless. His assistant was just as committed and excited to show us around this magnificent home and winery. We didn't expect such a private, intimate treat on our drive... More

The home owner and wine maker is full of information about this historic site and how he became a wine maker. The wine is excellent and the home is beautiful.

This is no ordinary wine tasting experience. The owner Saverio greats you with a warm welcome and provides a interesting background of the grounds and the house. You then proceed to the interior and continue the tour of the main areas which is full of history and intesreting facts. You then proceed to the wine tasting with a wonderful selection... More

This countryside estate just oozes charm and elegance. Dr. Luzzi not only takes pride in his home and his wines, but is so willing to share his home, his story, his wine and the fascinating history of the property that you can't help wishing you could stay longer. We are really looking forward to the arrival of the wines we... More

A beautiful estate with an exciting story, fabulous wines, and a charismatic Doctor, full of both charm and charisma! If you ever get the chance to visit this beautiful estate and taste some of his fabulous wines, you must do so. I cannot wait for my case of wine to arrive to share with family and friends!
