We didn't have a reservation (though I suggest you make one) and were very pleased to arrive about 11:45 and make it onto the 12:00 tour. We had a group of about 16 people (I prefer private tours, but this was OK as it was a good group and our guide was great). We spent about an hour touring the... More

The reason we chose this place was really random, but i was so happy we did! We didn't make an appointment and we showed up in between sessions, so we had time to kill before our tour. The staff was nice enough to let us walk in the vineyards and take photos. It was really breathtaking. The tour itself was... More

What a location to celebrate my 60th Birthday. We stayed 4 nights in the accommodation which is well located just outside Greve. It is close to Sienna San Gimignano & Florence. The accommodation is adequate and could do with WIFI. For the day of my birthday we booked the wine tasting and dinner and were totally amazed by the experience.... More

One of the best tour guides... so full of energy and passion, and full of knowledge both of the wines and the history of the estate.

We did a tour of the winery accompanied by a lunch, and the experience was amazing. The guide (who works at the winery) was so passionate about his wines that it was infectious. The lunch was delicious and was accompanied from fantastic wines from the wineries. Highly recommended!

I would highly recommend the wine tour especially if you get Gino; he was part philosopher, part comedian and wholly entertaining. He has amazing stories and truly speaks from the heart, which is where the love of wine needs to be. We did the tour and lunch and hoped that with the wonderful tour the lunch would be just as...

Our travel agent told us this would be the highlight of our trip and he was right! We took the noon tour of the winery. Gino was informative and very pleasant. We ate way too much delicious food and drank many types of wine. We made new friends at our table and felt like family when we left. The wine... More

This is one of my favorite places on earth! The wine tasting with lunch or dinner is always a highlight of our trip. We love it so much we go back every time we visit Tuscany.

This winery is a really amazing place to experience the Chianti region and it's wine. We went for the classical tour, which consists of a one-hour tour with explanations on the castle grounds and a finish with an amazing tasting session of 3 wines, olive oil on bread and balsamic vinegar with cheese. The wines were really good, but the... More
