We booked visit. The girl showing us around was extremely knowledgeable. She explained the history of the cellar and then showed us all the production stages. At then end we had the opportunity to taste three wines (Nobile di Montalcino, Brunello and a reserve one). The cost was 15 euros per person

Loved this story of how the winemaker ended up as the heir to this historical estate. His son and daughter appear to be doing an awesome job establishing this as a dominant Brunello. Great facilities and eye-opening tour was topped by some very good wine. Looking forward to having some more when we get back to the states.

(1) The wine was very good. (2) The tasting rooms was gorgeous. (3) The tasting expert running the show was passionate about their product and made sure we were comfortable. (4) We were in... More

Our private tour began in the old wine cellar of the historical home in the village.

Then we drove to the modern facility for a tour of the... More

My wife and I just had one of the most informative and private tastings ever. With the exception of having a very good friend give us a private tasting in Napa, this was the best and most engaging ever. Lucretzia is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about her Brunellos. We took a 45 minute tour of the facilities (need to book... More

The tour started in the village with a quick history lesson and a visit to the original wine storage cellar - very cool. From there, to the vineyard and what a treat! Learned all about the production process, Alessandra was great - her explanations were easy to follow and truly interesting. Then came the fun part - the wine tasting... More

This was a fantastic experience for us; we loved the beautiful scenery at the vineyard and we ended up with a private tour since no one else reserved. We started with a tour of the winemaking area and learned a bit of the interesting history behind the ownership, and then we had the tasting of 5 wines along with the... More
