An absolutely first class experience. Silvano and Rita are delightful and welcoming. The cooking class with Rita and Lavinia was amazing, Silvano gave us a wonderful tour of the wine and balsamic vinegar cellar. The day ended with a scrumptious meal, complete with full wine pairings (not just a taste of wine). You must try the ice cream with Silvano's... More

Spent the best 4 hours of our 2 week trip in Italy here at Tenuta Casanova. It was a unique experience, from the informational tour to the 6 course lunch, including special arrangements for a vegetarian . Each course was delicious, made with fresh organic ingredients, oils and vinegar, and accompanied by one of their wines - also wonderful. Salvano... More

In our cooking class Silvano and Rita provided us with a culinary experience extraordinaire that we will long remember as a highlight of our visit to Tuscany. From the moment we arrived at Tenuta Casanova, perched on a steep hillside with stunning views down into the Else valley, it was apparent that Silvano is passionately committed to fine food, excellent...

I was on this place with my family for what is called "light lunch". This was an amazing experience. Silvano is a very nice person, and we were able to learn a lot in a few hours. After a short tour at the cellars, we have a great experience tasting different kind of foods, made with the ingredients they produce... More

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
