“Lovely wine tasting experience”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

The tour is fascinating, the views outstanding and lunch with wine tasting superb! A definite must if in the region. Greve itself is well worth a visit - the most amazing butchers/deli/wine bar - Antica Macelleria Falorrni.

“Tuscany at it's finest”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

If you are staying in Florence or passing through Tuscany and you have time for one winery experience. Castello Di Verrazzano is only 35 minutes from Florence and well worth the visit. The estate dates back one thousand years to the explorer Verrazzano and is completely steeped in history. The tour is filled with passion and loaded with information, by the end, you can't wait to taste the wine. I highly recommend the lunch. If you would like to experience a real life Tuscan feast, this is the meal for you. Finish up with some Vin Santo, and Biscotti and you're in heaven. I love visiting Verrazzano and have been their many times, it's a surreal place that transcends you to another world of peace, beauty and serenity. The owners are meticulous and keep the place beautiful. My favorite is the salami and the ribs, cooked on an open fire. Everytime I leave Verrazzano, I leave with some spices for my pasta and a great looking piece of logo ware. We are already planning our next visit.

“Don't miss this!”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

I love wine, winery tours and great food. That said, you will not find a better place to experience all three. Contact them in advance for reservations as they fill up fast. Great tour, food and wine pairing is perfect! Lunch or dinner a wonderful Italian experience.
