After writing my first review some of years ago, I were here couple of times.
And must say, this winery and specially the host Antonio make this place very special for me.
First, it is far the best wine tasting I ever had and believe me, I had them a lot.
Wines are very nice, some of them won some prizes, especially Riserva del Conte, but Chainti Superiore is also very good.
What make this tasting so unique is Antonio, the host. Very nice person, leading the rules of tasting like it must be. And believe me, I was in some fancy paying wineries, with very expensive wines and did not get such a personal and profesional attitude like Antonio did.
So every time I will be in Tuscany, I will visit Antonio, to taste, to drink, to buy, but first of all to have a friendly conversation with the rare person.
Thank you Antonio, see you next year!!!

A lot of cyclist mostly Germans, tend to stay here. This is a no frills, casual, inexpensive pensione. There is a vineyard attached to this property and wines are very good. The owner is a very nice man that happens to be an old line Italian count and had turned the old family Villa into a hotel.

This wine tasting and wine producer was recomended to us by our Marina from Ill Torrino villa, where we were accomodated.
The wines were simply perfect, the host simply fabulous!!!! Prices fit, the quality outstanding. Tasting went according rules, we get perfect explanations of all wines we tried. This were the best wines tasting so far in Tuscany we did. Vino Santo is very special, really something very unique. Also olive oil produced by him is outstanding.
We also were in Villa Pillo - another famous wine producer in this region, but nothing special.
The room is small, you can also sit outside. The host also has horse shelter in which he was carrying about 63 horses.
We also were in Villa Pillo - another famous wine producer in this region, but nothing special.
Overall, the tasting as well as friendly talk with host made our afternoon unforgetable. And every time we open a new bottle of Villa Filicaja we remember these perfect moments.
