We visitied the Winery in late October 2014. Lidia was our guide on the Winemaker for a Day package. We truly enjoyed our experience! Very educational, professional, yet truly a family experience as a winery. Although they bottle millions of bottles of wine through the Ruffino label - they have not lost their roots and personal touch! From booking the... More

My husband and I had pre arranged a "winemaker for a day" tour for one afternoon on our honeymoon. I booked with Lidia all thru emails and her responses were always very welcoming and prompt giving us all details we needed. We decided to take the bus from florence, but missed our stop and after contacting our tour guide Eduardo... More

Thank you Lidia for such a wonderful afternoon on our recent visit in July 2014. We had a great time touring the property, learning the history of the vineyard and - of course - tasting Ruffino wines. It was wonderful to taste both those we were familiar with and those not distributed in the US. We look forward to our... More

We were greeted by Lidia who was immediately responsive to my e-mails. Lidia gave us a wonderful tour of the vineyard and we were treated to a wine tasting in an elegant room. we felt like royalty. Perfect.

Visited this as part of a Chianti tour. Not quite as exciting as when the grapes being harvested etc., but then it was nice and quite and able to enjoy the tour and samples. Sampled the wines obviously and the FRESH olive oil - great.

The Ruffino tan label has been one of my favorites since I very first started drinking wine. My wife and I were traveling through Florence and decided that we had to visit since it was so nearby. We rented a car and took the ~20 minute drive to Ruffino. Lidia was *super* accommodating and still gave us the full two-hour... More

We went to Tuscany in August of 2013 for a week of wine tasting. One of the vineyards we visited were Ruffino. We had an absoluty excellent time. First of all the estate is amazing, both surrounding and its buildings. We meet with our own private guide, that we had booked in advanced, who was a fantastic guide. She took... More

Didn't realize until the morning we were heading up there that you need to reserve a tour. I emailed them a few minutes before we left the apartment but no answer by the time we left. Headed up there anyway. Later saw that they emailed back just a few minutes after. Arrived at the estate about lunch time so we... More

Ruffino Chianti is a home favourite, so when we confirmed our trip to Italy in October, one of our first plans made, just after the flight, was the visit to the Ruffino estate. The first impression that Lidia had provided from the original email communication was wonderful - so gracious and accomodating. On the day of our planned visit, we... More
