My fiancé and I were doing a hiking trip through Tuscany. We hiked from Montalcino to Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona and had a great visit. We opted for the tour, tasting and light lunch and it was all great. We even ordered a case of wine and had it shipped back to the US. High recommend!

Visited this vineyard for a wine tasting with friends. Late in the day and although they had just closed they remained open for us. Very hospitable and accommodating. During the tasting we learned of the cycling association with the owner and returned two days later to investigate. Alessandra was amazingly generous in opening their private family museum of historic bikes... More

Simone led our tour and tasting. She was very detailed in explaining the entire wine process while showing us the equipment and barrels. The tour ended in a beautiful room where we tasted three wines and olive oil for the price of $15 Euro. While a reservation isn't needed for a tasting, a quick email to them is needed for... More

Winery is a bit hard to find so it's advised you pay careful attention when getting there. Wine is outstanding and the tour is very informative. Our host was very dedicated and took pride in working for Ciacci Piccolomini.

Visited here and shipped home $1000 of wine. Our package was never delivered because they don't have you sign for delivery. We contacted the winery, Silvia, and they were of no help. They said that UPS showed delivery so we were out of luck. We explained that somone in our neighborhood had been recently arrested for stealing packages and maybe... More

Our hosts were gracious and enlightening. The wine was excellent. The staff was quite knowledgeable and proud of what they do. We enjoyed the grounds and our overall visit. We absolutely would go again upon our next visit to Italy. Domenic (Las Vegas)

With a history going back hundreds of years with ancient olive trees as living proof, Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona vineyard is a must-see. The staff were warm, friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. I decided to buy both the top rated wine and olive oil. They were on top of the shipment and kept in touch until I confirmed it was delivered. Highly... More

Based on Trip Advisor recommendation we planned a trip to Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona. We didn't expect that our GPS system would have such a hard time finding it or that the staff would not be able to help us out either. The Facility is very nice and we enjoyed our wine tasting. We bought a bottle to drink during our... More
