The road to La Petraia is a bit rough. One needs a hybrid of an SUV for the bumps and a smart car for the narrow pass. We had something in-between. The patient drive was worth it. La Petraia is nothing short of perfection. The property. The accommodations. The hospitality. The food, the wine, the garden, the art, the furniture... Susan and Michael have built an impeccable retreat. We were greeted by Giusy and she saw to our every need while we were there. Her service was five-star. Michael gave us a tour of their garden and shared the history of La Petraia with us over the course of our meal. He came and went, offering us the perfect balance of privacy and company. Susan described each dish when served: every ingredient was from their garden and their animals. I highly recommend the wine pairing. If you like approachable gourmet cuisine - find your way to Susan's kitchen. Breakfast was just as good. Homemade cheese, breads, honey, jams, fresh Sangiovese grape juice... I cannot rave enough about La Petraia. We're already planning our return.
