Wedding “rehearsal” wine lunch
Sep 2018 • Family
I chose this vineyard and restaurant for a lunch instead of having a more traditional rehearsal dinner. This location, service, pricing and quality of food was absolutely spectacular! I would recommend again in a heart beat and can’t wait to come back again! So lovely! Thank you again for the memories and serving a large group of 40 (including 3 children)! Fantastic!

Amazing food and wine
Jun 2018 • Couples
We dropped in on this winery without a reservation and were greeted warmly. We had lunch that was absolutely delicious! She also offered us a tasting for a small fee and we tried three different wines as well as their grappa (free of charge). We then were provided with a free tour of the grounds by one of the owners (the winemakers sister). She was very knowledgeable about the history of the property and explained to us their process and how they are working towards becoming an organic winery. It was a great experience and we ended up purchasing a bottle of wine at a reasonable price. I’d highly recommend visiting here.

Beautiful Winery!

The winery is a little hidden if you are not familar with the area. Keep looking for the signs and you will get there :)

We enjoyed our winery tour and tasting completed with a delicious meal.

Must see when in Cortona.

Food and everything was just perfect
Apr 2018 • Friends
We combined a tour with wine tasting and lunch. The wines here are now organic and very fresh with the reds being great Syrahs. We did after the tasting enjoy an incredible lunch. What great food! Perfect pasta and perfect meat. Also the servings are of perfect size so you can manage four of them. The price is very competitive and the service is perfect. We just love this place.

Our waiter Luis gave us a true Toscan lunch and wine experience. A visit I truly recommend when in the area.

Appreciated lunch and wine
Oct 2016 • Couples
We booked a cooking lesson and lunch through a local agency and had a fantastic tour, lesson and lunch prepared for us by the Chef, Lucca. The tasting room staff, Maria, translated our lesson for us and they were very gracious. Wines were delicious and a great change of pace from the usual Tuscan reds. We would love to come back to stay at the resort and visit more!

Excellent food in a great location
Oct 2016 • Friends
We made reservations for a lunch and wine tasting for 7 adults and 3 children. The food was delicious and freshly prepared by the chef. Everyone enjoyed what they had ordered. Our hostess did a nice job telling us about the wines and serving the table. They were short staffed (our guess) and did not offer us a tour of the winery. We asked and were told it was open and could walk in if we liked. Also, we were unable to purchase any wines. The door was locked. We found this to be very odd and were disappointed, but knew they had many customers in the restaurant and only the one server.

Excellent winery to visit. Easy and nice!
Jul 2016 • Friends
We just stopped at d'Alessandro and we got a guided nice tour of the winery and the cellars tasted wines and walked on our own around the vineyard. The guide was very friendly, calm and nice. She answered all sorts of questions we had and took good time. The wine tasting was also very relaxed and positive. Visit this winery and enjoy it all. Highly recommendable.

Fantastic cooking course and vineyard tour
Jun 2016 • Couples
We did not stay at this property, though we did book a cooking course through the Operations Manager, Massimo with Chef Lucca in the restaurant. The course included a tour of the property (including the wine cellar), lots of information about the wines they produce, a cooking lesson with the chef of the restaurant in the restaurant kitchen for 4 courses, and then eating the lovely courses (and 3 surprise courses!!!) with phenomenal matched wines.

It was the most fantastic experience! Massimo was our guide and our interpreter - he was charming, engaging and great to hang out with. Chef Lucca and his team in the restaurant are phenomenal, and it was excellent to learn from them. This experience was one of the highlights of our trip to Tuscany and we would recommend it to everyone. I really enjoy cooking, but my husband does not, and even he walked away singing praises. It is quite a different set up to other schools we read about - I really wanted to learn local cuisine, but I didn't want to do so in a big group or with people that are just trying cooking for the first time - this was the perfect option. The company was fantastic, the food was outstanding and the wine was flowing generously.

Even if you can't fit in a cooking course, we highly recommend calling to book a tour of the property - Massimo and his team are amazing and the property is outstanding.
