Incredible place for a wine tasting, olive oils and truffles. We were very well received by Silvano owner who explained everything about the place and made us feel very comfortable. At the end you can buy some products of the farm. The day was pretty cool, super recommend!

From the moment we arrived, we were greeted warmly and taken around the farm to see and learn all about the biodynamic farming practices and all the produce. We passed by lavender bushes, pigs, vines. We were taken into the balsamic vault underground and did a taste testing and learnt all about the production and taste of balsamic. Then up... More

Our tour guide, Anna Maria, informed us that we would be stopping here for a light lunch. When we arrived we were escorted down into the cellar to do a balsamic vinegar tasting. That was an incredible experience for us, we do not truly know what balsamic vinegar is, this was a huge eye opener for us. We had some... More

Our tour guide decided this was where we needed to go to lunch and I am so thankful! It was fabulous. After a peak into the wine cellar and vinegar room, we were treated to a traditional italian feast. The Spelt and Garbanzo Bean Salad was out of this world. Not to mention it was paired with a delicious Chianti..when... More

What an amazing experience. I've never had such a beautiful intimate time wine tasting. With the owner himself personally showing us around their estate and farm, into the wine cellar, and over to the beautiful spread where we dined. Best wine, best lasagna, best hosts. A MUST.

We visited Tenuta Casanova for wine tasting and lunch in July 2014 after reading the rave reviews... We walked away feeling it was an ok experience, not sure if it deserves all the acclaim. The property is set in the beautiful Tuscan hills close to Castellina in Chianti. Upon arrival the host girl,which was very friendly, ran us through a... More

As part of our time in Tuscany, booked through Brownell Travel out of Atlanta, we had a visit to Silvano's and Rita's property and our family of five got the royal tour including the behind-the-scenes of the making of out-of-this-world balsamic vinegar! We left in a "food coma" which was no surprise given the outstanding nature of the food and... More

Lavinia was a friendly, lovely hostess and we enjoyed the wine/food tasting. We did not sign up in time for the cooking class, but when we go back to the Chianti region we will definitely make sure to do so in advance!
