    A wonderful experience, learning about the area, vineyards and wine production from this beautiful, historic castle. The views across the valley are breathtaking. The guide was knowledgeable and a good story teller, setting the castle in both a historical perspective and in the modern day. The wines are simply the best!

    Wine tasting was great
    Sara_C, Oct 2023
    Interesting castle history although tour was short due to pouring rain. Wine tasting was great. The castle dog Nana was cute and got a lot of attention off everyone.
    Enjoyable tasting experience

    The tour guide and wines were excellent, and the property was beautiful. The Viator description, however, overstates a bit—we only overlooked the vineyard, the tour of the “castle” basically is outside only, and the food accompanying the wines were tasting crackers.
    great experience

    Lovely wine tour knowing the Brunello wine and culture. Short tour with three tasting glasses of wine of varying price points.
    A sparkling afternoon in the Tuscan countryside 🏰.

    Wonderful tour!! Beautiful winery & castle. Great wine tasting, absolutely delicious wine. Landscape was breathtaking. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. We had a fantastic time.
    Disappointing
    GerganaMarinova, Jul 2022
    This is a beautiful property, with a fascinating family history and a small production of the famous Brunello did Montalcino, among others. This was my second time - I wanted to come back as I was so fascinated. The lady conducting the tour was energetic and pleasant but she didn't know almost anything about the absolutely fascinating history of the family who owns the castle. Besides telling us when the castle was built, she didn't tell us anything else about the family. She didn't even know that Dante had written about the family in his famous books. The tour was conducted in a haste and the lady was annoyed at most questions I asked about wine production or history of the family. Overall, very disappointing. If you decide to go, ask what you will be getting and whether your tour guide is familiar with the property. There is incredible history and beauty there but you'll be better off with someone who is knowledgeable so they can share it with you.
    Wasted day.

    We arrived on time and it was closed. One Italian lady gave us this information and shooed us away. I will be looking for my refund. Faye Vines

    Quel beau moment! L'histoire associée à ce superbe endroit! La visite et les explications de notre accompagnateur, Alexandro, ont été fort intéressantes!! Évidement, la dégustation des produits... un délice!! Nous avons rapporté leur vin à la maison!!
    Perder el tiempo

    Nada especial, ni siquiera el vino. No aporta mucho la experiencia , esperabamos algo mas interesante , tal vez es un tema de expectativas
    À faire en Toscane.
    Claude_R, Jun 2023
    L'histoire de ce vignoble est très intéressante, les compléments d'informations reçus durant la visite concernant les normes et le contrôle rigoureux exercé par les gens de la région sont un bonis et nous avons dégusté de très bons vins. Merci à notre guide pour son accueil et sa politesse.
    Ottimi vini e bravissimo...
