“Fantastic views and great lunch and winery tour”
Reviewed October 18, 2013 via mobile

Our tour guide Francesco from All Around Italy tours arranged for us to have a tour of the winery which was most interesting and then lunch with wine after. The location has the most amazing views and would be great place to spend a couple of days as they do offer overnight accommodation. Our winery tour was conducted by Arianna who was very professional and knowledgable. The selection of wine was good with lunch as was the food especially the cheese doused in honey. Our new found friends also helped make it a great day and we all left very merry so it was quite a noisy minivan enroute to San Gimmiano before heading back to the ship. A great place for a lunch stop and would recommend planning a stop here.

“Arianna is great!”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

After many times I visited the winery I have to say the views and setting are great, wines more than high quality and Arianna is a great host! Everybody loves her and she knows her wines and has passion in her job. I suggest to stop there while touring the chianti area.

“Favorite afternoon of our trip...Glorious!!”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

We recently booked a tour of Florence with "All Around Italy." It was our third day in Italy, our third long day of touring, and my family had seen enough museums and churches. Our wonderful tour guide Francesco suggested that we might enjoy an afternoon at this lovely winery. It turned out to be our favorite day of the trip and one of the best days we've ever had as a family!

It was a holiday in Italy and the winery was closed to visitors, but Arianna graciously agreed to open up just for us. The villa and views are spectacular. I can honestly say I've never eaten a better lunch in a more glorious setting. We felt like VIP's and greatly enjoyed Arianna's passion and enthusiasm for the wines she was serving. The food was simple, but delicious. Everything was local, from the garden tomatoes to the fennel prosciutto to the unbelievable cheeses and honey. And the wine....fantastico! Very memorable and very generous pours.

Our children are 19, 16, and 7, and the amazing thing is that they enjoyed our afternoon at Fattoria di Montecchio every bit as much as we did. It was an amazing day that our family will never forget. Very highly recommended and we hope to return!
