We’ve always been here, on the Chianti slopes of Arezzo, in the land of Tuscany, at Villa La Ripa, a Renaissance villa not far from Florence and Sienna. Olive groves and vineyards all around us with their precious oil and wine: Sangiovese, Tiratari, Psyco, Spaziolibero.Rows and rows of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Shiraz are well cared for with love and passion with respect for nature and environmental sustainability. The countryside is unique as it has remained unaltered for ages and deserves to be discovered, enjoyed and… tasted. It is recommended to all the lovers of wine tourism for unforgettable visits at the winery.

Had a great visit to this wonderful winery where we were personally greeted and hosted by the owner. Enjoyed the wine so much that we ordered a case for shipment despite the high Canadian costs!

Navigation challenges had us arrive quite late for our tour but, not to worry, we were welcomed and given the option of joining the group or having a mini private tasting. Both were great options considering that we missed our appointed start time. We opted to join up with the group as we had heard good things about the owner,... More

Make the effort if you have a car and head 10 minutes out of Arezzo to Antria to this amazing 16th century villa. The impressive iron gates and pencil pine drive up to the villa are breathtaking. Greeted by the current owner Saverio Luzzi who showed us the cellar, secret garden, magnificent entry hall with original artifacts and discovered treasures.... More

What an exceptional time! There are many wine tastings but few that take place in a villa that's almost as old as the discovery of America. Sylvia is the guide and she shows you the highlights and discoveries of the villa with the enthusiasm of a good docent. She also conducts the wine tasting with the passion and insights of... More
