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

As part of a private tour arranged by our Hotel in Florence that took us to Siena and San Gimignano, we stop by Tenuta Casanova for wine tasting and a light lunch, we were greeted by the gracious owners Rita and Silvano. Silvano gave us the tour and explained the history of the farm and how it came about, right... 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!

He INSISTED I leave a review since he doesn't have an account and had such a terrific time there. The following is his review verbatim: My girlfriend and I had so much fun at the farm. It was an...

We booked a trip through American Express and winery tour was part of the package. The location was picturesque and the service personal. They guided through a tasting and we were enjoying it so much they had to practically push us out the door for the next party. I highly recommend the experience and hope to visit again.

The cooking school experience at Tenuta Casanova, in Casttellina-in-Chianti, Italy was not something I was looking forward to doing, but as things turned out it was one of the highlights of our trip to Italy. The five or so hours of cooking and eating what my wife and I had prepared went by very quickly...and deliciously. The class, run by... More

A wine tour, lunch and wine tasting at Tenuta Casanova is an EVENT. Multiple courses throughout the meal coupled with a very nice selection of wines produced in this 7,000 bottle a year winery. The property and scenery are beautiful. Carlo is the perfect, gracious host and the food is simply outstanding. Yes....we shipped the wine home.

We loved this winery. The owner is very receptive and the wine is delicious. We set at a table with a panoramic view to make the taste. Great experience. Worth it.

We started off by stopping to take a picture of the barrel in front of Sant'Agnese and Carlo came out greeted us and promptly we were immersed in Tuscan hospitality. Carlo explained the two properties which included Tenuta Casanova. One lunch reservation later at Sant'Agnese and we were hooked on leaning to cook in the Tuscan style. Rita is definitely... More

We visited the winery with 4 friends and had a tour of the wine cellar prior to Rita's cooking class. The trip would have been very nice had we visted the winery alone as they have a very impressive product mix of wines including the typical Chianti Classico and a very nice Super Tuscan. However, they also have some fantastic... More
