Interesting winery
Sep 2018 • Friends
A nice winery run by an all female staff that produces excellent wine. Very good view on production processes and an excellent Brunello. Ensure to book a guided visit or stay here.

As somebody that adores Brunello and has many bottlings from some of the most famous Brunello makers, I was looking forward to seeing a winery ran only by Women. I wasn’t disappointed. A first class tour of the winery by a knowledgeable and friendly host followed. The Brunello tasting was first class with a taste of the 2013 straight Brunello and the Brunello Prime Donne. The only drawback was that both were way too young and require at least another five years of aging and longer. Both showed elegance and having bought 2 bottles of the straight 2013, I am certainly looking forward to trying again in the years to come. I also purchased a Prime Donne, 2x2010 riserva and a bottle of IOsonoDonatella 2012. I look forward to cellaring all of these and consuming all in the years to come. I highly recommend a visit if you love Brunello as much as I do.

Their passion for Brunello shines through
May 2018 • Friends
Casato Prime Donne in the Montalcino region of Italy is a Brunello winery. My husband and I visited with a tour group (Go Ahead Tours) on a special "Wine and Flavors of Tuscany and Umbria" tour that took us to 6 towns and 3 wineries.
Our guide was passionate about the history and quality of the winery, and we learned about the Sangiovese grapes and the unique conditions of the region that make this wine so special. We enjoyed a wonderful meal paired with delicious wines in the charming tasting room at Casato Prime Donne. Then our group lined up to buy a few bottles to take home!
Here are a few photos from the winery and the Montalcino region:

Informative and Delicious
May 2018 • Friends
Our walking tour group stopped here for a winery tour and lunch. The person who made the presentation is very professional and informative. The lunch was very good with my wife requesting a recipe for one of their dishes, though what we received was not really a recipe. Still, a nice place.

Very nice winery
Mar 2018 • Couples
I went here on my honeymoon. This place was small and intimate. Just what we were looking for. The winemakers are all women and produce a very special product. My favorite was the Progetto Prime Donne Brunello!! Great and friendly place to visit. The women that gave the tour was very passionate about making the best wine possible.

Wonderful vineyard
Mar 2018 • Friends
Last year, after trying one of their 2010 BdMs, I was determined to visit the vineyard for a tour and tasting. One year later, we made the trek from Germany to visit the region to include Casato Prime Donne.

The website was helpful and informative. Antonella quickly responded to my inquiry and recommended the Wine and History tour for our group.

Unfortunately, traffic was horrible through Switzerland’s Gotthard Tunnel and Northern Italy so we missed our original appointment. However, Antonella was very patient and graciously waited for our arrival.

Upon our arrival (almost three hours late), Antonella warmly greeted us and provided us an opportunity to freshen up before the tour.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and wine tasting. I’m so thankful that Antonella waited for our group.

This vineyard is distinctive in being woman owned and managed. The owner, Donatella, promotes culture and the art as exhibited by the art displays throughout the property to include the cellar. Also, she is a supporter of women leaders in all industries. It was truly an honor and pleasure to have visited Casato Prime Donne.

Thank you Antonella for your hospitality. So sorry about buying so much wine but we know your team will make more. :-)

It was for me a real pleasure, this job allows one to meet many wonderful people. You and your friends are among those, and you become our friends through sharing the same phylosophy, and of course the same love of good wines. No worries store is being replenished today!!! We hopefully will meet again soon!!! Antonella

Bizarre experience
Sep 2017 • Couples
Visited the winery but cannot say I enjoyed it, it was like some sort of cult, with drones as workers whom completely ignored us despite our attempt to interact, and whom stopped what they were doing once the party moved to the next section. We were subjected to some sort of propaganda film where the owner (Donatella) was depicted as a dove, quite bizarre ! The tour guide was derogatory about Chianti wine when it was mentioned and yet I spotted a half empty bottle in the tasting room; we were not offered proper tasting sessions in the tasting room (in fact I was pretty much refused a tasting) only two smallish glasses with our lunch which is in stark contrast to the other winery's I have visited; consequently none of our party spent any money, a missed opportunity. I cannot recommend. We were even encouraged to leave a positive trip advisor review to artificially boost their ratings !

My goodness, Sir or Madam, unfortunately I do not know which as it is not possible to see who you are as you do not sign your name. I am most disappointed with your words.And sorry that you have gone away with such an impression of our winery. We do our upmost to leave a pleasant memory of the experience had. I am curious to know when and who ignored you and if this was the impression of the whole group or just yours. It is possible that you might not share our philosophy. In the film Donatella is not depicted as a dove as you say, the explanation is clear, it is our brand, it represents her surname. The tour guide cannot have been derogatory about Chianti as we produce it!!! That is why you saw the bottle. Regarding the tasting, each tour operator books a service, some book tastings some book lunches accompanied by wine, you tour operator chooses the latter.You should have been informed about what is included in your packet before departing. Foe what regards the artificail boosting, I find this ridiculous. As you can see with TripAdvisor one can write whatever, true or false.

WIne Tasting and Cooking
Jun 2017 • Couples
As part of our three week tour of Italy and Portugal, this visit stands out as truly memorable. Antonella welcomed us like old friends and introduced us to the wonders of Tuscan cooking in all its simplicity, goodness and incredible flavours. We arrived late due to our own inability to follow directions, and we were received with the warmth of a close neighbour and without the pretence that could have been been put on at this very famous Brunello winery. The dishes we made were paired beautifully with the fruits of Montalcino and were accompanied with the instruction and personal stories of the almost thirty years Antonella has been at the winery.
This tour is a must for anyone who enjoys wine, good company and the beauty of the Orcia region.
A better day could not have been had. Thank you. Thank you.

Went for a wine tasting and light lunch. Before that a very informative tour which told us, not only the way the wines were produced, but the history of why the area started in wine production. Next, why the entire operation employs only females.
Wine and food were great but the background story was even better.
