We had a fantastic wine tasting with our family (parents had a wine tasting and kids' oil tasting). The people working at the winery are very friendly, and everything was very well organised. The wines are superb and when they tell you the story around them, and you see the number of prices they have got over the years you appreciate even more. The views from the winery are amazing, save some time for photos outside!

We did the basic wine tasting and really enjoyed it. The staff were friendly and spent a lot of time with us, providing plenty of information about the history of the families and winery, and the olive oil then wines that we tried. It's a cute location with a nice terrace and don't forget to check out the small display of bikes, jerseys and photos from Italian and other global cycling competitions. The tasting was €15 per person, but we got one for free with a purchase of wine.

Simona gave us an excellent tasting, very informative about the wines of the region. Brunello was excellent but also enjoyed the 385 Toscano Rosso. Getting a mask with their logo was an added bonus, a memory of visiting in covid times.

The tasting room is beautiful. The white oak barrel top bar is worth the trip. The wines, even the the lowest priced wine sold in all the local restaurants, are a great bargain. The staff is very helpful. They ship to the US, even Oklahoma..

My husband, son and I did a last minute casual wine tasting. We were hosted by Domi who was very thorough in explaining the history of the winery and each of the various wine types. We learned much more than we originally were anticipating, which was an added bonus. The wines themself were very tasty. We ended up purchasing at least a bottle of each a couple of the Syrah which was well bodied and flavorful. I’d definitely recommend swinging by this winery on a visit.

What a pleasure it was to experience the wines of Montalcino through our leisurely visit to this winery. We were offered a very nice selection of wines to try and were walked through how these wines came about and some history of the estate. Of course we left having purchased a number of the wines. Luckily for me I preferred the cheaper end of the selection but my friend was not so lucky!

The day we wanted to visit the winery, they were full booked. However Alessandra, the kind lady I had the conversation with, spared no effort to make sure we could have a tasting. Because we could’nt have a tour at the winery and I had told her the BDM Pianrosso is one of my favourite wines, she suggested a customized tasting. Normally they don’t serve Pianrosso in the standard tastings but now they suggested a vertical tasting of the BDM 2013, 2014 and 2015 and a tasting of the Pianrosso 2016. We started off with the Rosso di Montalcino 2019. Besides we tasted also their olive oils.
We got a warm welcome and a brief story about their history. With every wine we were told a lot about that specific vintage, the weather conditions, how the wine was managed to obtain the best quality.
In short: We had a pleasant visit!

Amazing place and beautiful wines - the tour through the winery was great and really interesting. Our guide spoke really good English and was lovely and friendly. We sampled some fantastic wines which being able to order online so we can get them back home is great.
Thank you for a wonderful experience!

This was by far the best winery we visited in our week in Tuscany. Not only because of the excellent quality of the wines but also because of the super friendly and knowledgeable team! We had a fantastic experience and were impressed by the interesting family story and great cycling museum. The premises are just beautiful and the tour is super well organized. We missed our original appointment and they were extremely kind to accommodate our group for the next day. 100% recommend!

We were greeted by Simona. She was our host and was AMAZING. She explained the wine, estate, family and wine process so well. She was informative, hospitable and provided an excellent tour. She made our tasting so enjoyable. We did the four wine tasting and they all were excellent. The tour of the cellar was informative and provided great insight into their wine making process.
