We had the most amazing time at the winery. The owner came in as we were enjoying a tasting. "Wonderful wine is produced here" We had unfortunately missed the last wine tour of the day and she graciously offered a small tour of the Aged balsamic facility and the Castello's glass collection spanning the last 2500 years. We couldn't have... More

We expected this to be good and last a couple hours.....a couple turned into more than five and worth it. While a big volume place, Banfi does it with quality, and their best wines are really good. The winery operation is massive. Lunch in the Taverna was wonderful.....and with additional wines not tasted on the tour. Worth the price overall.

If you have the wonderful chance to be driving through Tuscany, definitely make the time to stop at the Banfi Winery and glass museum. There is so much history to enjoy with the glass pieces. The store has so many types of wine, chocolates and cookies...you will not be disappointed!

I was a little skeptical about going to Banfi since my fiancé and I wanted to visit smaller wineries to get a more authentic feel of tuscany but, we were pleasantly surprised. We started our visit with lunch at their restaurant La Taverna. Our steak for 2 was delicious! Probably one of the best steak I have ever had. After... More

I can honestly say this is one of the most beautiful properties we have ever seen. My wife found it after extensive searching for the perfect vineyard in Montalcino and she found it. The castle and grounds are just beyond beautiful and the wine is amazing. We went for a lovely lunch and Taverna on the property and then took... More

Scale of the American owned vineyard is astounding (11mn bottles annually according to our guide) and the cellars are the highlight. Castle is very picturesque and worth a trip for lunch, which is v good, if you are comfortable with the high end pricing.

This is probably the 5 star winery experience, it is a little expensive but the wines are incredible, the staff really friendly and the views stunning. It's a good drive out from lovely Montacino, 5k of dirt road included but it is really worth the trip. Splash out and taste the ice wines if you like sweet things, if not... More

Worth the visit if you are in the area. There is no wine tasting as part of the tour but there is a tasting/wine pairing menu at the associated restuarant.

Highly recommend visiting Banfi estate. We did the 4pm tour which they do everyday. (I'm pretty sure you need to call or email in advance). The tour of Banfi's facility was amazing! Tour guide explained in detail every process of wine making and history of property. Banfi is a large production facility so be prepared to be wowed. After tour... More
