I have to preface this review by saying that the rating is influenced by the fact that on the day of our visit to Marronaia, we had car trouble and as a result we were about an hour late arriving. I don’t know if this affected our experience but I can’t be sure, hence the 3-star rating versus a lower one. My wife and I visited with our daughter and son-in-law and 2 grandsons aged 3 and 6. Our daughter and family arrived before my wife and I so Marronaia was aware we would be late. On arrival, we were greeted warmly and shown to our table for the lunch. I don’t recall the name of the young lady who was our guide/server. The meal was quite good and we were regularly asked if everything was okay and if we needed anything. After the pasta course, the children were still hungry and so when we were asked if we needed anything, we asked if the children could have more pasta. The server returned with a menu saying we could order more if we wanted but we would have to pay for it. The tour with lunch was rather expensive: 45 Euros per person. They reduced the fee for the children to 40 Euros because they wouldn’t be drinking so we paid 40 Euros for the children to have lunch which I find to be overly expensive for what they got, especially since we would have had to pay extra if they wanted more. We were never offered coffee at the end of the meal. The 5 Euro difference for the wine tasting reflected how little wine we actually tasted with our meal. The explanation of each wine was very scripted without much information about the history of each. Our wine “tour” consisted of a short walk into the garden next to the restaurant and a maybe 5 minute explanation of the vineyard. We chose this vineyard for our tour because it was rated number 1 or 2 on TripAdvisor. Also, the website indicated that you could park at the vineyard and from there walk to San Gimignano. My son-in-law had never been to San Gimignano and the rest of us were anxious to visit again but it is quite a walk from Marronaia to the town and so my wife and I decided to return to where we were staying and the others drove up to the town for a visit. Regardless of whatever effect our late arrival had on our visit, I would not recommend Marronaia as a vineyard to visit as there are others around San Gimignano that we have enjoyed more and which are less expensive, more interesting and better value.

My wife and I were directed here by tour advisor from Richmond Va.We spent the most pleasant day ever, on a rainy day in March before the fireplace inside the cozy tasing room and enjoyed lunch and wine that will never be forgotten. We were so impressed that we sent a case home which is slowly and meticulously being shared with our best friends. A perfect day that thru wine will last forever!

Amazing wines and lite lunch overlooks the rolling hills of the vineyard. Our waitress was extremely knowledgeable on all the wines made there.

My family had the pleasure of visiting the vineyard in May. We loved the tour, the wine, the food but more importantly we were treated like family. Even by the two family dogs who sat at our feet while we enjoyed various wines and homemade delicacies! I highly recommend a visit!

We absolutely love it here. The vibe is incredible and obviously the wines and olive oils are top notch. It’s family owned but they make you feel like family. This was our second time visiting and it was just as good as we remembered. Ask for Vittoria she’s the best!

This was a wonderful respite on an otherwise hectic and active day of touring. The setting is stunning, the staff warm and inviting, and the food and wine excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed sampling the wares of this family-owned establishment outside San Gimignano near Firenze. Highly recommended.

We stopped by this vineyard on a whim, without an appointment and close to closing time. We wanted to buy some wine for shipment to the US, and they were kind enough to accommodate us with a limited, but thorough wine tasting experience. When I return to Italy, I will have the dinner with wine pairing. The EVOO was also sumptuous.

My wife and I had a great time at Podere La Marronaia. Our travel guide booked us a pairing overlooking their vineyard and San Gimignano in the back ground. Food was great and even better was their wine. We loved their whites and had several cases mailed back to the states, shipping was quick and also free.
