The Fattoria Al Dotto winery show us a great time! The wine and olive oil they produce was excellent. Mark did a great job explaining everything from the grapes they use in each wine to where the best ice cream place was when we were ready to leave. The dishes they prepared us were extraordinary and they were able to include the vegetarians of my family. Not to mention the view of the Lucca valley was beautiful. 10/10 highly recommend this wine tasting!

Amazing throughout. Mark and his guys are so friendly and welcoming, they made us feel right at home with their hospitality and friendliness. The dining area is a lovely spot with great views across to the mountains. I would definitely recommend coming hungry as every course of wine had a large plate of paired food. Needless to say, both the wine and food were delicious. The price is incredible value for what you get. We even got a good price on some wine to be shipped to the UK! An amazing experience that I would not hesitate to recommend. Thank you Mark and everyone at Fattoria Al Dotto!!

Coming from South Africa we were skeptical to go to a wine farm in Lucca. We were pleasantly surprised- What a wonderful day out was spent! We were kindly greeting by Marco who went into depth on the history of the farm and the wine making technique passed down through generations. We sat down for a delicious meal which was made to perfection whilst tasting some generously sized glasses of wine. Marco was funny and really engaging to our group and so welcoming. The wine are so well priced, we left buying two cases to bring home but only one made it as we ended up drinking the second! This is the best experience possible to do in Lucca!

Wonderful experience. 6 courses of delicious (and generously poured) wines paired beautifully with plates of local food. One of the best experiences we had in Lucca. The host was very hospitable and personable and the views are gorgeous. I recommend not eating before and not having any dinner plans immediately after because the plates and the pours will fill you up. Bon appetito!

Our experience at Fattoria al Dotto was fantastic. The winery is easy to find and we had enough parking space. We were welcomed by the friendly and enthusiastic host whose native tongue is English (and he speaks Italian as well!). We were appointed a very nice and clean table with an amazing view over the region. Tables were 1,5 m apart, hosts wore facemasks, we kept our glasses and cutlery, so I would say well within Covid-19 standards. We had the six wines accompanied with food. Of course we have our preferences in regards to the wines, but they were all delicate and had a pleasant pallette. The food went well with the wine served and believe me: you won’t be hungry afterwards. In addition, they are very generous with the wine, it is not the usual 5 ml sip and done. The host was very present and he shared with us information on the winery, the wines and his personal story. It made the experience more personal and charming in my opinion.
Wines and other products are available for purchase, but what I appreciate is that you want to buy (in our case) the wine because of the taste and quality, not because you feel pressured to buy something. That was certainly not the case. Thus, in short, great experience!

In an area where wine goers are spoilt for choice, this was easily the best winery/fattoria we visited.

First up the wine, it is devine. We did a tasting of 4 wines focusing on reds and we couldn’t fault a single one. The merlot and carillus were extra special. We were so in love we even ordered a case to be shipped to our home in the U.K.! And as people who don’t drink loads of wine, that’s saying a lot about how good they were.

Next up the food- oh my god, go here hungry! My husband is gluten-free and I am vegetarian and it was no problem catering to our needs. They kept bringing on massive trays of wonderful fresh, creative dishes to suit each glass of wine. For the €25 for the wine and food it was excellent value.

Finally the company. We were served by the owner, Giacomo, who showed us such amazing hospitality. We had some great chats about the wine, production and Italian culture in general. We couldn’t have asked for a better host. Simply a lovely person.

All in all this was a highlight of our trip to Tuscany. We feel so lucky to have had this experience. Just go. Eat and drink while soaking up the amazing views. A true tapestry experience.

P.S. we went with our 10 month old baby and they were very accommodating providing a high chair for him.

Absolutely fantastic atmosphere, the wine was some of the best I’d had and the host/staff provided exceptional service and offered a great wealth of knowledge into their wine making process.

The food pairings were a lovely touch, with the Salmon being a personal highlight.

This place has arguably the best view for a drink in Tuscany, and rightly has received other great reviews. We will definitely be coming back to visit when we are next within distance.

We arrived and the host greeted us full of enthousiasme, he warned us it was full house that night so the wait could be a bit longer. The servings were, however, perfectly timed. We ate before hand and that was our mistake, we should have known as they warned us by mail. This was an amazing experience. The wines were very complementary with the food. The view elevated the experience to another level.
Great hosts, great wines, great food, great view. 5/5 well deserved.

We had the pleasure of visiting Fattoria al Dotto while vacationing in Italy in 2018. The wine was amazing and we instantly fell in love with the staff. I am so happy that I am able to get the wine shipped to me in the USA for a very reasonable price. Our favorites have been the Rosepenna, Carillus, and Rubeo. There are always great sales and specials on their website. I feel like I am back in Italy again!

IrishTraveler2013, We sincerely appreciated your visit and now kind words. Unfortunately Rona has disrupted many travel plans and plans in general although we’re still able to ship worldwide. Not sure we have your email although check the website for some fantastic specials. We look forward to seeing you back when we are in the new norm.

You will find this winery high on a hill overlooking the valley and hills of Tuscany. Mark will treat you to a tour of their wine production and lead you to your table on a terrace. The pours of wine are plentiful and paired with a delicious variety of food that is well prepared and thought out. All foods typical of Tuscany, many grown right at the winery. Mark was a great host! Do not expect high end wines for the connoisseur, expect good wines that pair well with foods here in Tuscany!!! What a special delight!
