We came by for a drop in wine tasting and ended up staying for a delicious lunch and managed to join in on the wine tour. Enjoyed it very much. It is a beautiful estate and the quality is top notch.

We just went for the wine tour and tasting. The castello and facility is beautiful and they are very welcoming. The tour is in a separate area a mile or two away but interesting and worth driving over for the experience. We tasted a variety of their wines and enjoyed several in the wine tasting area. This is an American company of Italian heritage so their wines are available in many areas of the US and we have found a good number at our local stores. Montalcino is a very cute town so this is well worth a detour.

Go to the winery but stay for the tasting menu at Taverna Banfi. One of our favorite meals. The wines are good but I have had most of them in the states so no surprises. The castle was great and the glass museum was interesting.

Highly recommend this winery for a visit if you are in the region.

It's the stuff dreams are made of.

We did not eat at the restaurant or stay at the hotel, were there for a wine-tasting and to buy wine. My ranking if for the atmosphere, wine-tasting, and quality of the shop. Not a tour, food, or hotel. The tasting was great and so were the wines. The sommalier was knowledgeable and helpful. We were pretty wine-smart before (having lived in Italy for 6 years, Germany for 2, and California for 4), but I still learned some new info. Nice availability of wines and decent prices. Discounts for volume. The location in the countryside was gorgeous.
