I cannot say enough about how enjoyable this tour was...from beginning to end. If you can only do one tour in Florence this should be it. Friendly and knowledgeable guide. Loved it!
We had such a great time on this tasting! The drive out to the castle gives you a chance to see some of the countryside and once you arrive the food and tasting are great. The food was delicious, we got to try some great wines and it was very interesting to hear about winemaking in the region. The most incredible part of the evening though is the view. The castle is on a hill which gives you an incredible view of both the vineyards and olive trees - like something out of a movie. We got to go out between courses and see the sunset which was perfect!
Amazing dinner and wine, olive oil and balsamic vinegar tasting. More food than we could eat and Marisa was very attentive to us and even though we were the only couple that signed up for the tour they honored our reservation. they were extremely aware of my. Garlic allergy and made all our courses from scratch. Definitely buy the honey with white truffles while you are there.
I was a single traveller so this tour was a great way to experience a nice 4 course dinner with other people in the Tuscan countryside. Domiano, our guide was very informative and a perfect gentleman. Always ready to answer questions or bring us more food!! The food was amazing and we were all well fed. You will not go home hungry. The wine tasting was great and learned about wine making and olive harvesting. The villa and countryside was so beautiful. It is a nice change from the city. The views were spectacular.
The experience here was definitely worth the money. They provided a great tour with good information, the meal was good, the wine was good.
If I had a negative it would be it was a bit commercialized, but that could be as compared to the previous place we went to the night before. Plus, the wine we bought there was actually cheaper when we got back home. Not complaining as we loved the wine, just would've waited to purchase.
It was a fun evening out of town. I wish they would have told us the meeting point for the van instead of meeting at the Florence office. We would have taken a taxi so my aging mother didn't have to walk as far. It was an easy walk for regular individuals though! Other than that, it was great!
The villa is located on top of a hill so the views of the farmland and countryside were absolutely beautiful. However, our guide did not speak English very well and the group could see that she was trying super hard but struggling. I don't know if she was a last-minute substitute but it was not fair to the group that we couldn't receive a proper tour and missed out on some insights, and unfair to her to have to struggle like this as she looked a bit embarrassed. She took us to the wine cellar and tried to explain how the wine was made and new methods that the vineyard was experimenting with. Then we sat down to do a wine tasting and had a make your own wine session, where we could mix different grape varieties to custom make wine. Afterwards, we all went upstairs and sat in an enclosed patio for dinner we asked if we could sit in the open patio because the temperature was nice and the sun was setting but they said no. The food was ok and there was a decent amount. You will not go home hungry. If you're vegetarian, I would suggest that you mention that when you book the tour as all the courses contained meat except for dessert.
had a good time with our adult family. If you already know how wine and EVO are made then you may not learn anything new. Martina was cheerful but rather busy in the adjacent restaurant which had smorgasbord..... Wish we did....because not get enough meat in our dinner!
