My boyfriend and I took the Best of Tuscany Tour with WalkAbout Tours and we had the most amazing time. The highlight of the trip is having lunch at this place. When we arrived, we were guided to the vineyards, the olive grove, farm and wine making cellar. We were welcomed by the owner and her friendly staff. The breathtaking views of the vineyard was magnificent. It's nothing I have seen in my wine tasting tours in Napa and Sonoma. It just have a beauty of it's own.
You can enter the farm or skip it. I have to warn you that the smell can be overwhelming. I didn't mind. The cows are actually cool to see. I thanked them for the fabulous cheese that we were about to have. We then went to the wine cellar where we were shown their wine making process. After that, off we went to lunch.
We ate at the outside patio overlooking the vineyard. We had such an amazing weather for an end of October trip. We were seated with wonderful people and conversations were flowing. We started with different kinds of cheese and prosciutto. Then the main course was pasta. It was served with a toasted bread with olive oil. They were absolutely delicous. They served 4 bottles of wine in total - Cabernet, Chianti, Vernaccia and a Port. All of them were excellent. I love ports and theirs is one of the most amazing ports I have ever had. You can really taste the Brandy and it's not overwhelmingly sweet. They served the port with a delicious biscotti. The entire time, we had sparkling water on our table. After all the wine, it was very helpful to rehydrate. We also bought a bottle of Cabernet to bring home. I will definitely order wine from them to ship to the US.
Good food, very good wine, amazing vineyard, wonderful tour... can't ask for anything more.
