Our wine tour and tasting at Tenuta Fanti Winery was hosted by a very friendly and informative young woman named Ileanna. She guided us through the meticulously clean cask rooms and explained her winery's specific process of growing, harvesting, fermenting, and bottling of wines. We were led to a beautiful tasting room that was in the midst of being decorated... More

Our hotel in Chianti recommended and set up a tour at this winery when we asked for a recommendation in Montelcino. It was wonderful in all respects. Our tourguide was very nice, knowledgeable and spoke great English. The best part was of course the tasting of the wine. The wines were delicious and we ended up purchasing and shipping several...

No vacation in Italy would have ben complete for "TheRedWiner" without a winery tour. Our Tuscan Villa was a short drive away from Montalcino, where we stopped in at the Tenuta Fanti Winery. We had spent the day in Montalcino sampling the ample offerings from the many little shops which line the streets of the village and passed Fanti on... More

Our 2nd stop on our Franco wine tour, (see separate review), this place is very cool. A medium sized winery with great views, and wonderful wines. Make sure to ask to taste their Vin Santo, totally different than anything we had all trip , like liquid brown sugar!!.

This winery was recommended to us by a previous visitor, and definitely lived up to its high praise. Guilia welcomed us, gave us a leisurely and informative tour, and later recommended a fantastic restaurant for lunch. We loved their wines, especially the Brunello, and brought home several bottles to share with family over the holidays.

Initally, we picked this vineyard simply because it is close to the San't Antimo. We made our appointment in good advance not expecting much. But how wrong we are! The people there are truly marvellous and passionate about their work. The lovely lady who took us around was extremely informative and accomodating. We learnt a lot about wine making in... More

Great Place. Illiana Showed us around, she was very friendly gave us a great tour and we enjoyed the wine and the olive oil. After we finished our session Illiana was nice enough to suggest a bar to go to not far away and take us out and show us around. Great hospitality. Great wine.

We chose to come to this vineyard because we have been fans of their wine for quite a period of time. Eliana (I probably spelt it wrong) was our guide and she was wonderful. She made the tour a great learning experience and it was so nice to discover the evolution and growth of this winery. At the end we... More
