    The staff/owners are so incredibly accommodating and informative, and they made the whole experience incredible. I learned so much about the process of making wine and olive oil from start to finish, as well as the environmental challenges that the vineyards must endure. Moreover, the food was delicious and the wine was certainly the best I have ever had (and I live in Spain!). I would buy their entire stock if I could. I highly recommend this tour. It is so much more intimate and informative than any other wine tour you will experience.

    Very enjoyable and informative wine tour! We loved the tasting and the lunch was amazing - some of the best food we had on our trip to Italy. Even in the off-season (early March), the property is beautiful. They also have great olive oil that we bought a bottle of in addition to wine. Short drive from Siena which was very convenient. Highly recommend!!

    A wonderful experience and a terrific way to spend part of your day. Our guide, Giancarlo, was very knowledgeable and took his time in explaining and answering various questions about all aspects of wine and olive oil production. The wine tasting with lunch was very good. We purchased a mixed case (wine and olive oil) to be delivered back to the US and we are looking forward to receiving it. We would definitely recommend and plan on going back the next time we are in Siena.

    A fantastic tour. Would recommend to everyone
    anthony_m, Oct 2023
    This is a great tour. I can’t remember the winemaker/owner’s name but he provided a fantastic description of how he honors the tradition of Chianti making and doing it in an organic manner. The wines were good, especially the rose. Was almost a 4 hour experience with a nice lunch. We would HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
    Classic chianti country

    A must visit! We have been on many winery tours but none as informative as this one. So much passion for the work that is done on this family farm. The wine was all excellent. We ordered a case to be delivered back to the USA. We will definitely reorder. You will leave happy that you came!!

    This was a very informative and interesting talk. We really enjoyed it and learned so much. Thank you! The wine tasting and lunch were outstanding. I highly recommend it.
    One of the best
    CAROL_P, Oct 2023
    Experience like no other. The owner went into great detail on what is involved in the operation of his vineyard. We toured beautiful vista of rolling terrain of grapes and olive trees and the cellar before sitting down for an authentic lunch of homemade pasta and dessert while doing our wine tasting. Wines were remarkable and affordable. It is obvious the family is passionate about their wine. It was shown from the minute you arrive until you depart with the genuine hospitality they shared.
    A must visit

    Incredible wine tour with an extremely knowledgeable guide name Gian Luigi. His knowledge was very engaging and i extremely enjoyed listening to Gian Luigi. The wine tasting was excellent. We tasted 5 different wines and a very tasty light lunch which included ravioli, dried tomatoes and dried prosciutto salad. I would highly recommend this tour. Grazie Gian Luigi, Nadia and Angela.
    A Must Do Experience in a beautiful winery!
    Kathryn_H, Sep 2023
    This experience was a highlight of my time in Tuscany. It was a last minute decision to do this tour and it was exceptional. The family run farm and winery La Lastre is located about a 20 minute drive from the centre of Siena. The views from the fields are stunning. Christian, one of the owners, was the guide for our small group. His agricultural knowledge is outstanding and his passion for farming in more environmentally conscious ways formed the framework for all the information he shared. The winery itself is small and we had the opportunity to taste wines that were only 200 bottle runs. His explanations of all the wines were detailed and they were all excellent. In our original tastings, the food pairings were suggested and then we were able to taste them all again, paired with specific food. The food was all prepared by his sister Nadia and was also all excellent. The tasting and courtyard areas are lovely and this whole experience feels very intimate. This is a must do if you are visiting Siena!
    Most informative and delicious wines/lunch we’ve ever experienced!
    Jennifer_P, Sep 2023
    Christian was very good at explaining the family business from the history to the science of it and to final bottle stakes. Very well done!
    Amazing day out wine tasting
    Lynnette_S, Sep 2023
    The guide was very informative and made it very interesting. Amazing house and setting, rustic and charming. The lunch was delicious and lots of wine to drink. He even organised a taxi to take us back into Siena. It was a highlight of our holiday.
    Must do
    Corine_M, Sep 2023
    Highly recommend! Very informative and the wine is great! The lunch was fantastic, and we got an olive oil tasting as well and shocked as to how extra virgin olive oil is actually supposed to taste!
