We were on our way to Altesino and stopped at Caparzo as we'd enjoyed their wines. There isn't an official tasting or tour, but they allow you to taste wines that interest you. The host (vendor) was VERY accommodating and explained the wine properties well. We really enjoyed our visit and bought of few of the wines which were very good and reasonably priced. Our purchases were nicely packaged as well.

Very interesting wine tour by Alessandra - so knowledgeable and serviceminded. The Brunellos, the Rosso di Montalcino and the Moscadello are really great wines.

Very Enjoyable Tasting with Great Food
Oct 2018 • Couples
My wife and I very much enjoyed our tasting at Carpazzo. We had a wonderful host who gave us a very nice tour. The tasting afterward was in a very nice facility where we were allowed to chose the wines we were tasting with a food addition possible. I strongly recommend a late morning or noon tasting with the food. The selection of meats, cheeses and crostini was wonderful. Also, they have many more wines than I knew of and we shipped home some of their Brunellos not readily available in the US. Strong recommendation for this tasting.

Beautiful place in Tuscany to stop and learn more about italian wines. Brunello is one of the best wines that we tasted and this place made the experience very special.

A lovely gem of a winery
Apr 2018
Stubble across this winery while walking the hills of Tuscany. Stopped in the lovely tasting room and purchased a pilgrims lunch of a sandwich, a glass a really fabulous white wine and a bottle of water. Sat outside to consume (it was siesta) and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Only wished we had, had room in our backpacks for bottles!

Visiting the winery of your favorite Brunello is FANTASTIC!!!!
Aug 2017 • Couples
We were staying at Castello Banfi, a good 25 miles in the opposite direction over Montalcino, but we love Carpazo, so we had to try it out. We worked our way up to the winery, with many missteps, getting lost in the countryside (Google Maps is not perfect). As we approached Carpazo, all we could wonder was "are we in the right place?"

The complex looked tiny for a winery that produces wonderful wine the is plentiful throughout Chicago... much, much smaller than the massive Banfi complex that we saw the day before.

We proceeded down a dusty hilltop, Cypress-tree lined single lane road, expecting to have to turn around every second. We arrived too late for a tour, but they are always happy to let one pay for a tasting.... The greeter tried hard but was English-challenged. However, it doesn't take a lot of sign language to try a Rosso, Brunello and a Reserva. Plus we were able to book the tour for the morning.

We were back on time, despite the dusty, single lanes roads. The sole worker with reasonable command of ENGLISH was waiting for us, as excited to practice her English as we were to learn about our beloved Carpazo. She proceeded to lead us around the 4 buildings of Carpazo, telling us the history, the lore, the present and the life of the wine. It wound up being a private tour, just her and the 2 of us. She was incredibly knowledgable, being a native of Montalcino, growing up and living on a nearby rival winery. It is truly in their blood.

By the time we made it to the special tasting area, we had seen enough to appreciate the wine and feel like we earned it. No wine tasted as good the whole trip!

Visited the Caparzo winery on our tour with Giovanni of Montalcino Wine Tours! We were shown about by Christina who was fantastic in explaining the process and history from beginning to end. We had a great tasting session and I will forever remember thanks to Christina the meaning of DOCG! Our Purchases made it home safely

Highly Recommended stop

Have stayed at villa 3 different times. Have done the wine tour & tastings. Christina & Alessandra are terrific. Lorenzo's alright too. Beautiful property. Great location. Not much more to say except experience it for yourself. You won't be disappointed.

Got shown around the Winery by the lovely Christina, she went through all the process of the wine making with some really interesting facts, and then finished off by sampling 6 bottles made all the better with each one being explained. And you don't have to spit it out!!!!

Worth a visit!
Sep 2016 • Couples
We booked a winetasting (for two couples) at the Caparzo Winery on a recent visit to Italy. Our host Lorenzo took us on a tour of the winery and then to a winetasting room for sampling. Lorenzo was friendly and knowledgeable. My husband is a Sommelier, and Lorenzo ably answered all of his questions. We tried multiple wines, sometimes going back to retaste previous ones for comparison. We purchased many bottles to bring home to our cellar. I recommend this very worthwhile experience for anyone visiting the Montalcino area.
