This by far was one of the major highlights of our 5 day trip to Tuscany! We had a cooking class with the owners of the property, 2 generations of authentic italian chefs, father and daughter...We made homemade pasta, even dried it on bamboo poles, delicious tuscan red sauce, pork roast with fresh herbs from the garden, grandmas special cake and liver pate! We sampled wine from their vineyard and had a tour of their winery which is on their beautiful property....They also have a beautiful b&b on their property. The great part of this day was that everything we did was spent outdoors, they have an outside oven and all the prep was done in the open tuscan air!! A TRUE 5 STAR EXPERIENCE...Can't wait to go back just to see Elena and her father!!

We spent 2 wonderful nights at this B&B. We had a suite in the main building, and my parents had a lovely room next to the wine cellar. Views from the top of the hill and from the shaded patio were beautiful. Both rooms were very clean, nicely decorated, and the beds were cozy. We arrived just as the wine harvest was finished, and it was fun to see the activity and commitment the entire family had around their farm and livelihood. The hill is steep, but my partner and I walked it with little difficulty--quick 10 minute walk into Greve's main square, with shops, restaurants, and a market on Saturdays.
Breakfast is Italian continental--more than adequate for all of us, and Elena is quick with a smile and coffee. It is set up in the wine cellar, and it is interesting to see the pictures of the farm over the years, as well as hear some of its history from Elena. You can also order a nice picnic lunch, if you plan to hang out at the pool or wander the area. We had a nice bottle of wine and a cheese plate when we first arrived, and enjoyed it immensely. They do not sell their wine in the local stores--only to people who've stayed with them or have heard about them. It is good wine--unfortunately, we were traveling with backpacks, so will have to have it shipped over!!
Elena speaks English well; her family speaks less. We were able to communicate with everyone, and Zotto (their 1 year old puppy) made it easy. Love of animals is an easy thing to see, and we had fun with him. You can tell the minute you arrive that this B&B is something special--very personal and caring--we will definitely return!

This B&B is a winery first and foremost, which I think is so great. You eat breakfast in the wine cellar next to aging vin santo and Classico. The location is near the main part of greve and is a 2 minute drive with easy parking. We did not try to walk because the B&B is at the top of a fairly steep hill. The hostess was incredibly sweet and helpful. We had a lovely stay.
