We did not make any bookings during our trip to Tuscany as we wanted the freedom to make plans as we go and not try to book everything ahead of time. We showed up to this winery after a recommendation from our hotel, and we were very pleased that we went! We were greeted immediately and we were given a... More

This was our favorite vineyard tour and we highly recommend booking it. We had reserved the tour online and they were expecting us. I wouldn't recommend just stopping by and asking for a tour. The young woman who gave us the tour was very knowledgeable and interesting, and we learned all about their operation. The grounds and the garden areas... More

We visited this lovely winery on a gorgeous spring day and we're so amazed! Matteo did our tour and tasting and he was a delight and very knowledgeable about the history of the castle and the vineyards and wines. We were two families with three young children, and Matteo was great with the kids. He even allowed my son to... More

13 november (sunday) it was the most scenic drive in our weeklong tuscan stay getting to this winery. it was also one of the most beautiful castellos we had come across. unfortunately, all that buildup went to the can upon encountering the rude lady managing the wine tasting. 1) when we asked if it was possible to tour the winery,...

This was a wonderful stop on our visit to Tuscany! We came here for a wine tour and private lunch and it could not have been more fabulous -- please know we did have reservations, because others who stopped in were turned away. Our guide was wonderful. His English was perfect -- and he toured us around the vineyards, the... More

My partner and I were keen to visit a real chianti winery, so we called in on the off chance. We had arrived too late to join a tour, so instead we were sent to another building for wine tasting. There was a young lady in charge, who had attitude! We were offered white, red and grappa for €10.00 per... More

Our guide stopped at Castello d'Albola for a tasting and short tour, we were impressed with the reds and have continued to get hem since we have been there. In addition the winery has connections with another in Virginia (Barboursville that we have made a point of stopping at recently.

Visit lasted just over 2 hours. It was very informative but dragged slightly due to a large tour group (with 4 nationalities and children!?). The tour visits the vineyard, barrels and then culminates in the reception for a tasting of 4/5 wines. The wines are nice but the portions are a bit stingy :) Good value for 10 Euros all... More

Visited here on an organised tour from the Norcenni Girasole campsite near Figline Valdarno while the rest of my family chilled out for the day. After a short coach ride we arrived at the beautiful location for one of the largest vineyards in Tuscany. We had a great tour with a very informative lady and then tested some great wines... More
