This was the second time I have taken this cooking class and I was not disappointed. Rita and Silvano are wonderful hosts and the class includes a tour of the winery and balsalmic vinegar facility. You also get to eat the lunch you have prepared. The class is very hands on and everything is explained beautifully. I would recommend this... More

Silvano thanks so much for your intelligence in presenting your organic products grown in your vineyard. The information you shared about growing grapes for great wines, grape juice and vinegar for balsamic, and wonderful olive oils were with me to keep. You and Rita are a good pair like the wine and food pairing you guys presented. It was very... More

We had our concierge arrange a day trip to Siena and surrounding area but had no idea what a special place Tenuta Casanova was until our driver Jonis pulled into the drive. He knew of this organic farm and vineyard and chose it for our tour. Absolutely the highlight of our family trip! Silvano and Rita were most gracious hosts.... More

Staff were very welcoming as soon as we arrived. Had a lovely tour of the farm, vineyard and cellar. We got to try a selection of lovely wine, balsamic vinegar and oils. The food paired with the wine was not only unexpected but some of the best food we have experienced in Chianti. Definitely would recommend this Wine Tasting Experience.

Tenuta Casanova is a completely charming vineyard and farm with fantastic views of the Tuscan countryside and incredible food. The couple who own and operate Tenuta Casanova are incredibly passionate about what they do and that is apparent in every aspect of the tour and tasting. Silvano is hospitable, funny, and highly enjoyable. His wife, Lavinia, prepares the most incredible... More

Tuscany is about wine and food. Tenuta Casanova is a place you want to experience. Make sure you book the "light lunch" when going. You will leave fulfilled. Silvano and his wife, are all about the organic farm products, his unbelievable balsamic vinegar, his organic olive oils with fresh truffles, and oh yeah, he makes a great bottle of Chianti... More

This was one of five wineries we chose to visit on our four day trip through Tuscany. From the start, we felt warmly greeted and made friends fast with Silvano and Lavinia. The lunch was outstanding, as were the wines, balsamic vinegars and the olive oil. 95% of our lunch came from their farm, making this a great organic experience... More

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!
