Stayed in the "farmhouse" at the Castello di Verrazzano and did the wine tour and "light lunch" the following day. Our stay was beautiful - it is about 1km from the castle in nicely decorated and clean rooms with beautiful views of the castle. The tour is fantastic - great views throughout and an immaculate property. The "light lunch" was... More

They were so friendly and accommodating, even to two poor American students. While I've only seen a sliver of Italy, when I go back I'll definitely go here again. The food was delicious, the tour guide was knowledgeable, friendly, and actually enjoyed her "job." This is a must do trip!

After going on several group tours while on vacations in Europe, I've determined that there are 4 types of people on a group tour. Canadians, you can usually spot these 4 types easily as they are generally America. They are, in no particular order: 1) The Keener - This person has studied in advance of attending the tour and knows... More

We reached a little late for the wine tour, but got a chance to eat at their restaurant. The food was so authentic and apparently made by the women of the village nearby. Had some pastas and in-house wine. Was just fantastic. Couldn't have asked for a more relaxed meal. The view from the gallery outside is to die for.... More

I did the Castello tour with wine tasting and lunch. The grounds are beautiful, olive trees, grape vineyards and more. The wine(4 vino selections with grappa at the end) is great; ending up buying and shipping some home. The food( maine dish wild boar sausage, beef ribs cooked over fire) was delicious! A must to do while in the Chianti,... More

We visited this place for a wine tour. It was so good and educational. I forgot a name of a lady who was our guide - older one, but very attractive and spoke a few languages - English must be her first one. She was the best wine guide ever! The views are breathtaking!

Although we were staying at another castello, our guide said we must go to this beautiful winery for the tour and fantastic lunch. We were not disappointed. Gillian was such a wonderful ambassador and provided a great overview of the castello, interesting history, and connection to the Verrazano Bridge in New York. The lunch was so incredibly delicious, and brought... More
