We spent a wonderful week at Pietralta at the end of June.  Our apartment was in a very old stone refurbished farmhouse in a rustic but modern apartment. Our small private patio overlooked the countryside spotted with vineyards and olive trees. There were large clumps of sage and rosemary planted on the edge of the patio, so the air was scented with herbal smells. We enjoyed sitting there sipping on wines from their vineyards while watching the sun set.

This was a perfect home base to explore nearby Tuscan hill towns.

During our stay we had a cooking lesson with a dear friend of Franka, Arcangela (spoke only Italian).  She had a farm near where we were staying. Everything we cooked was fresh from her farm that day. She gathered porcini mushrooms from the forest and killed and dressed one of her rabbits. We made focaccia; tagliatelle from farina flour; fried zucchini and zucchini blossoms; we  battered and fried the rabbit; tiramisu for dessert. We ate our feast at a long table outside overlooking the Tuscan hills while the sun set with her family and friends. Couldn't understand a word, but lots of laughter and good times .

Thank you Franka and Stefan, for a wonderful experience and treating us like family.

My boyfriend and I were staying in Volterra and were driving to San Gimignano when we saw a sign for wine in the middle of the rolling hills. We followed the signs down a small lane for 5 minutes before ending up at a wonderful traditional Tuscan house complete with amazing views and a swimming pool. We wandered into the little shop there where we were greeted by a lovely lady. We asked if it was just okay to taste or have a glass of wine without buying and she said of course. We tried two wines, both Chianti as we were in the capital of Chianti vineyards and both made by the owners themselves. We enjoyed our wine in the sunshine, admiring the views and playing with the dogs and paid a mere €12 in total. Was a lovely way to spend an hour in the afternoon.

Having visited several wineries in the area for really enjoyable tastings we arrived at this one after seeing the signpost along the road. Nobody else was around and when the lady arrived after we pressed the buzzer we were not greeted with much enthusiasm at all - totally unlike any of the other places we've gone to which was very disappointing. She allowed us to try 4 bottles - none of which seemed to stand out, she offered no extra information - just watched us sip the wine and that was it. No snacks offered or even water until asked for. We noticed a charge per person for a tasting (we hadn't seen that at other, better, wineries) so bought the cheapest bottle and left. Easily the worst tasting experience we've had out of 5 and would not recommend either for the wine or the experience.
