Our visit to Poggio Antico was one of the best afternoons in Tuscany. The wines were outstanding and we learned a great deal about Brunello wines during our wine tasting. When we returned to the U.S. we order a case of wine. Paolo and Daniele provided outstanding customer service. We were so pleased with the wineries service, follow through and... More

Our visit to Poggio Antico exceeded our expectations. The manicured vineyards, olive groves, cypress trees, and panoramic views make it an ideal backdrop for your Tuscan vacation photos. While some may consider the wines expensive, they are world class and worth every penny. We tasted (and purchased) "Madre", "Lemartine", and the 2004 Brunello di Montalcino. The big surprise is the... More

We booked the tour, tasting and lunch reservations in advance. I recommend you do the same, especially if you want to have lunch after your tasting. Trust me- you want to have lunch as the food is phenomenal. We started with the tour which was very nice. Sarafina was an excellent hostess. Just wish a little more time was spent... More

A bit of sign-posting would have gone a long way - we wandered around for quite a while trying to find the tasting room. Wine tasting was quite expensive (but it was for expensive wine so perhaps understandable). Setting was gorgeous

We, the four of us, scheduled our wine tasting tour several months in advance and changed the day a couple of times, while planning our week. Well, I made a mistake and we arrived on the wrong day. Not to worry, the folks at Poggio Antico were very accommodating. What a beautiful place and the wine was Magnificent! Our tour... More

My friends and I booked a tour and tasting at Poggio Antico this October. It was my second visit and their first. The tour was very enjoyable, covering all aspects of their production and our guide was very personable and answered all of our questions completely. The tasting is held after the tour in the nearby tasting room. You may... More

We have been on lots of wine tours, but never really get bored. I love to see the oak barrels and talk about aging. Sarafina was an excellent host. Spectacular view from the patio! The tasting room is small, and I thought the wine was superb. We ordered a case to be shipped back and I am looking forward to... More

My wife and I visited Italy during the summer of 2014. Having previously tasted the wines from Poggio Antico at home in the US and been quite impressed with their quality, I decided to visit Poggio Antico during our stay in Florence. I arranged to rent a car and we drove to the winery. The drive, alone, to Montalcino through... More

Oh God....not another winery tour before tasting. If I hear one more time about pumping over and punching down, I am going to kill someone. The wine tour was long on time and short on value. All of that to have to pay for the tasting. And I mean pay. Fifteen Euros to try three wines. We live in Napa... More

As, on this our first experience driving in Italy, we have found the driving experience in the countryside to be tiring, frustrating, exasperating, and often scary, we decided on heading to Poggio Antico for our only stop in the Brunello area. We found the meal excellent, the wine was others have described d the view lovely. Driving back to Orvieto,... More
