And the wines are great... More

We loved the wine tour here. We not only tasted some incredible Tuscan wines, we also got a full tour of the vineyard & winery where everything is made. Plus, we learned all about the rules distinguishing Chianti from Chianti Classico and Super Tuscans. It was the best wine tasting experience we ever had and we bought a case to... More

Cannot say enough good things about the tour and wine tasting. The hostest was excellent and very knowledgable. Kind and gentle with my wife and I. You can't do better! Go to Casa Sola and let Maria guide you in the way of Chianti Classico..

My husband and I had a great time learning all about the quality wine making that takes place at Casa Sola. Maria also explained a lot about the Casa Sola's olive oil and how it is made. She really helped us get the most out of tasting the wines too. We also were able to take a beautiful photo in... More

Our charming guide, Maria, took us through the entire wine making process, from a tour of the vineyards and tasting the grapes, the pressing, fermentation and the aging barrels and barriques. She explained, in excellent English and with a sense of humor, how Casa Sola make... More

My husband and I rode bikes to this beautiful vineyard and winery. We arrived without a reservation and the staff was very accommodating and allowed us to join a tour in progress. In order to get the full experience, I would recommend you make a reservation. Thanks Maria!

Maria, thank you for outstanding presentation of the whole Chianti wine and olive production process besides the history of Chianti area. It was really interesting and detailed with dose of humour, including tour through wine field and cellars (fermentation area, ageing area), we learned a lot and tasted top wines from Casa Sola. Maria shared her knowledge, revealed wine making,... More

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
