We had only 2 days stay at this beautiful hotel just a short drive from the Cortona township. Our room decorated in traditional style was delightful.Apart from the delicious breakfast, we did not dine at the hotel as we were not terribly hungry. The host and owner David is very hospitable and takes obvious pride in his establishment. When we asked for a recommendation of a winery to visit for a day, he was straight on the phone seeing if we could fit on a winery tour and degustation lunch at Aviognesi. Fortunately they could accommodate us. It was an easy 20 minute drive away and I have to say this is a MUST experience. The cost of 65 Euros per head was well worth it and if in Australia would have cost much more. The tour of the winery was most interesting and the lunch overlooking the vineyards was to die for. Normally degustation meals have one glass of matching wines per course, but here they were topped up and included some very expensive wines. A big thanks to David for organising this day for us. If we are lucky enough to return to Italy, we will definitely return.
