This wine tasting experience was great. The people were lovely and passionate about their wine. The light lunch and tasting of wines and oils was delicious. The grounds are beautiful, a must do if in the area.
San gimignano is worth a visit. This winery is hard to find and the location is nothing spectacular. However, our winetasting was paired with different foods and very interesting. We enjoyed the presentation in a small room that was old italy.... The grounds are beautiful and their wines are wonderful. You will be inside having lunch and wine. No vineyard walks. But a good value for the money.
We found place very easy and one girl was waiting for us with short story about history of winery. Afterwards we went inside the restaurant, were food and wine was waiting for us. We got 7-9 i am not sure glasses of different wine, paired with food, as well as paper to write our opinion about. Both were very delicious. I am not very big fan of stronger wine, so for me this made less impression than for wine-lover, so don't take it as a rule. Big thing that ruined whole experience for me and my husband was the staff. Girls who were leading the program were very fake, if I may use that word. We always felt like they are pretending to be that polite, and that nothing was sincere. They were very pushy about buying the wine and we saw them arguing with each other, which is something that always makes you feel a bit uncomfy. Everybody who is wine lover should visit this place, since wine was excellent and food was delicious, only reason why I am giving grade this low, is because of atmosphere staff created.
So so pleased we found this place. It was well worth the journey rental car out to the winery! All the wines were fantastic and the added lunch delicious lasagna with truffle oil and a salad an amazing balsamic vinaigrette was a great value. As someone with limited wine knowledge this was a super fun and informative afternoon. Purchased two bottles at the end, my only wish was they were able to ship for orders less than 4. Beautiful area and a very friendly family-run place. Would recommend this to any friend travelling to Tuscany.
My only real complaint was that there was not clear info on what time to meet. I arrived at 11:00 which was apparently too early for the lunch. They were still very accommodating and provided a nice experience. We learned a lot about the wines of the region and had a good tasting. I'm not sure I got what I paid for in terms of the lunch since we were early, but overall it was fun. We tasted some good cheese, salad, meats and bread with one white and several different red varieties. We also had some lasagna. Staff was knowledgeable and friendly.
We didnt get to see anything outdoors which took away from the experience but the staff was great, food was AMAZING and so was the wine! Would recommend but its more like a restaurant just keep that in mind.
A very enjoyable lunch with a wonderful selection of wines, we were unable to get a taxi from San Gimignano but when we phoned the venue they came to collect us. We eventually got a taxi back but it was expensive, think at a little extra cost it would be good to provide transport. The lunch and wine tasting was great value for money.
