We very much enjoyed our tour with Maria. Her English is perfect, and she gave an excellent explanation about how they make their fantastic wine and olive oil. Maria also made the wine tasting at the end of the tour fun and engaging. Although not the most modern in appearance, Casa Sola feels very "authentic," which made it more interesting... More

We visited a number of wineries during our time in Tuscany, and this was easily our favorite. Our tour with Maria was private and comprehensive, and we learned a lot about making wine and olive oil. The tastings at the end were also outstanding, the product is fantastic.

This was our first winery tour of our trip and even though the four of us have been to winery tours in the USA, we learned a lot, including a refresher on how to taste the wine. We also tasted their olive oil and ended up buying both. It is a family-owned, small winery so you felt like you were... More

If you want a wonderful experience and an excellent instruction of Chianti Classico then schedule a visit with Maria at Casa Sola. Interesting, vibrant, informative and charming can only to begin to describe the atmosphere. Maria will explain it as simply or as detailed as you wish. A light snack set the stage for a wonderful tasting experience. Classico, Classico... More
