The staff were top-notch and the villa is beautiful. We missed our initial booking due to horrendous traffic, but the staff were able to rebook us the following day without additional expense. The villa itself is fascinating and it is also surrounded by some amazing countryside which you can walk around before or after your visit. The wine tasting itself was nice, but it wasn't the most beginner friendly tasting experience. I think you'll get more out of it if you already have some experience tasting wine.

Beautiful experience, we were very amazed by the whole historical part of the estate and of course excellent wines. Talented Sara: very kind and polite, certainly a great expert in the wine sector and it is immediately clear that she has an excellent knowledge of the historical part of the estate. We recommend this experience to everyone !!

The truffle search was super interesting and the guide had a profound knowledge and could explain everything very well. We found 7-8 big truffles and many smaller ones with the dog. We also found flintstones. Finally, we ate delicious truffle pasta with the truffles we found ourselves and drunk various wines. Only recommended.

Excellent experience - Ilaria and Nicola were very welcoming. The tour was interesting and the olive oil and wine tasting was amazing. The view while eating the bread, cheese and salami was breathtaking. Would highly recommend for anyone who loves olive oil and wine!

Very nice and informative guided tour through the vineyard including tasting of olive oils. No sales event.
