What travelers are saying
- I just had my wedding rehearsal dinner on 7/24/2022 at Verrazzano. I'm a picky person, but Verrazzano went above and beyond my expectations. The location was beautiful, views were gorgeous, staff were amazing, and food/wine were delicious. My husband went to scout some other wineries around the area and this was the best one by far. It was very authentic/not touristy.
We got the winery tour/dinner combo, which was perfect. My guests had so much fun that we lost track of time. We stayed for like 6 hours. It was very reasonably priced too, which is always a nice surprise. The Florentine steak was so good. They were also able to make last minute accommodations for my vegetarian guests.Written August 1, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- I just walked around. The man in charge was fully occupied with the scheduled wine tasting. He refused to sell the glass of wine to me. But he gave the nice one to taste. The taste of wine with combinations of the view was on of the most beautiful experience of TuscanyWritten July 10, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Very big wine shop with good prices.
The cool thing about this enoteca is that you can try a big selection of wines by the glass, 1/2 glass or 1/3 glass.Written July 17, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- It was a lovely experience, beautiful view and delicious wine presented by a sincere and great woman who provided us with great information about the unique wine they're selling.Written July 27, 2022
- We can confirm that much to our dismay this place is closed as Stephano passed in his sleep in January 2020 due to heart attackWritten October 3, 2021
- Another lovely little village like Volpaia. There isn't much there apart from a couple of restaurants but the streets are lovely to wander through. We walked up from Greve in Chianti along the 'Slow Road' walk routeWritten July 26, 2022
- We had an icredibly interesting wine tour through the wineyards, the production site and the wine cellar with Giulia. She is an expert in oenology and has a deep knowledge in wine production. The wine tastes wonderful, was served with specialities from the region and was explained very well. Thank you for this wonderful experience. 🙏Written August 10, 2022
- Square with lots of shops and bars, a bit of a tourist trap but nice to walk around. It is also where the tourist information is and the start of the 'Slow Road' walking loop is, which goes from greve up to montifioralle and round (takes around 2 hours and some bits are quite uphill). You get some great views on the walk!Written July 26, 2022
- Our family group of 5 had a superb wine tasting experience at Fattoria Viticcio. Booking was easy and instructions on how to get there were very helpful. The tour started in the vineyard and then into the Fattoria to see the storage and processing of the wine. We finished with wine tasting (5 wines) together with food all for €35. The wine tasting included one white, one rose and three reds with an explanation of each wine. There was no hard sell in terms of buying any of the wine. The event lasted approximately two hours.Written June 27, 2022
- I would highly recommend this place!
The hosts are very friendly and the wine is so good.
We will visit you again :)Written August 1, 2021
- An outstanding winery tour with Winemaker Diego. From the vines to the tasting room, his passion and knowledge burst through. The very best Chianti Classico and Chianti Classico Reserve you will enjoy in Tuscany. And the property is stunning. Make time to visit Diego when you are in Panzano, near Greve in Chianti!Written June 15, 2022
- Villa Vignamaggio is a very old estate, south of Florence, a few miles from Piazza Matteotti in Greve. In recent years, in addition to the properties of the main estate, the management has added other properties further afield, including a hotel in Panzano, La Pensione, (about five miles south of the Villa, as well as Montagliari (about midway between Greve and Panzano) and yet another property, Case al Prato, a few miles away. In the past few years, they have closed portions of Il Cenobia and Casolese for "improvement," and guests are directed to these newer properties.
Understand, growth is fine and each of these newer properties is fine in its own way. But...someone, somewhere, decided to tamper with the original rooms in Il Cenobia, and frankly I feel they now have stripped it off its charm, character, and simplicity, and tarted up all the rooms so now they have lost their historic feel. Instead, they look like the product of a restaurant designer who wanted to suggest "Florence" and hence, "Tuscany," so every room sports a wall sized graphic rendition of the Duomo in Florence and the surrounding streets. And the calm, serene retreat that had been the individual rooms or suites now all look and feel the same-- and that look is busy and tarted up. Where once the walls had all been bare white with minimal artwork for decoration, now each and every room is dominated by this huge graphic that screams "look at me." Worse-- all the original ceilings and massive wooden logs supporting the brick and wooden ceilings have been painted an antiseptic white, so they now look like a hospital operating theater.
This is a travesty so egregious that those responsible should be punished by the requirement that they strip all this paint off each of the rooms and restore them to their original, historic state.
I loved Vignamaggio...once. It was my favorite place in Italy, and felt so special to me, that I seldom divulged its name or location, lest others find themselves disappointed and wonder at all my superlative. Alas, the "new, improved" (?) Vignamaggio is NOT that, at least in my eyes. The prices have risen, they are aiming at a more elite clientele, their services and offerings have been greatly expanded-- and in the process, they have trampled all over what made Vignamaggio special. I'll never stay there again, but I will drive up Via Petriolo to enjoy the view of the vineyards sprawling up and down the hills, the recall other drives up this winding road lined with ancient olive trees. But then the approach to the villa shifts, as the road is suddenly lined by trimmed box hedges, as if to say, below are farmers, but up here, by the villa, well here things are not rustic, here it is all manicured. And if that's what you want, I guess you've come to the right place. No doubt soon there will be valets to assist with the car park and insure you never have to touch your luggage.
I am incredibly saddened by what has been done here. Villa Vignamaggio has lost its soul. And its uniqueness.

Please, never change ❤️Written July 17, 2021
- We have stayed at Montagliari on two occasions. First time, we rented the villa in Gaiole (Verdi Monti Villa). The next trip we stayed in one of the rooms at the farm. David Migliorini is a fantastic host. Always very friendly, entertaining and helpful. The cooking class with David's mother was a lot of fun as well. We ate breakfast and dinner in the restaurant on the property. The food did not disappoint. And, of course, the wine is the highlight of the visit. There really is not a bad thing to say about this place.Written May 13, 2018
- My husband and I had an amazing wine tasting experience at Querciabella. Our sommelier, Sofia, was very knowledgeable and it was a great learning experience. I love that this is a biodynamic and vegan winery and the wine is great. The property is absolutely stunning. Though we weren’t able to tour the entire place because of COVID restrictions, you still get to take in a ton of beauty. You will want to take a lot of pictures of the gorgeous landscapes that surround you in this magical setting. Thanks for the memories, Querciabella!Written July 7, 2021
