We were the only couple there when we arrived. Stefano explained how his wine tasting session took place and told us that he simply wanted his guests to enjoy themselves....we certainly did!
The numbers of people grew steadily as the tasting progressed and we really enjoyed each lovely wine whilst listening to the Stefano’s stories that were linked to pieces of art produced by a close family friend.
Good wine, good stories and good art...puts you in a great mood and you simply can’t leave empty handed!

Tough drive to but once we got there we really enjoyed the wine tasting in the beautiful setting of a small family winery. The fields envelope the cascading Mountains as fas as the eye can see. This is wine country. If you came to be in awe then you will not be disappointed.
We loved the wine so much, we decided to buy a few bottles. 4 months later are still waiting for the wine purchase, or good customer service from the winery in at least trying to get it sent to one of the multiple address with have provided. They sell wine so you might assume they are accustom to the shipping process of wine to America and capable of making this happen. But alas we are still waiting for the wine or a refund.
Fantastic wine tasting that sadly ended sour and very expensive as the wine is stuck in a UPS center, with neither UPS or the winery able to collaborate to send it to a US address.
Sangiovese wine soured by logistics and bureaucracy. But, if in Italy you must take a visit.

We were in Tuscany for our honeymoon and I was a bit surprised by how tourist-y most of Tuscany feels, even when you are trying to avoid truly touristy places. However, our visit to Altiero was the coolest, most unique thing that we did. We received a tour of the family-owned organic vineyard and winery from Paulo. His lovely wife Sam then gave us some tastes of all of their wines, accompanied by charcuterie and a selection of delicious jams that she made. Throughout our time at Altiero, we also met the family dog and Paulo and Sam's two beautiful daughters. We lamented the fact throughout our trip that we didn't have any friends in Italy to show us the "true" Italy -- Paulo and Sam treated us like friends during our time there. We ordered a case of the Reserva to be delivered to us in the United States -- it was surprisingly great for such a young wine producer, and we love that they do not use any U.S. distributors, so it will be a true treat for our family and friends who are wine lovers to hear the story of Altiero and try it with us.

Enoteca Falorni

Enoteca Falorni is the largest enoteca in Tuscany featuring over 1,000 selected wines with more than 100 wines available for tasting, using the innovative enomatic(R) system. The Enoteca is located underground in the historical centre of Greve in Chianti on the site of the first large wine cellar founded by noble land owners of the area (considered the authentic fore bearers of the Chianti Classico consortium). The historical structure has ample spaces with arched brick ceilings, corridors and smaller rooms (originally used as grape storage areas) and tells the story of its long history as a wine cellar that for years represented the economic heart of Greve in Chianti, boasting a line of illustrious owners. Constructed in 1893 by Ernesto Leproni, the location was used as cellars by the Union of Chianti Classico producers in 1906 and subsequently purchased in 1913 by Count Emanuele Mirafiori d'Alba, until being sold to the Gancia di Canelli brothers in 1932. In the 1960's and 1970's the site belonged to the Italo-American dei Paterno family and was left in an abandoned state in 1975. In 1999 the premises were purchased by the Bencista Falorni family and were transformed into the present day Enoteca Falorni, with the aim to promote and give valour to Chianti Classico wines. Its elegance and the presence of more than 1,000 principally Tuscan wines with others from further Italian regions as well as sparkling wines, dessert wines, grappa and olive oil render the Enoteca Falorni an authentic "temple to wine".

Had great expectations for Greve tastings. This place missed the boat. Prices above local wine shops. Service non existent. Funky taste system where u don't know price of a bottle as u must find on a shelf (post it on the taste bottle, dummies). Tasting selections seemed focused more on inventory than offering a range of tastes and prices. Have had better tasting experiences at local mom and pop wine shop.

Visitors to this romantic estate have agreed the trip was well worth it: the family is warm and hospitable, the grounds are ruggedly romantic and the wines are impressive.

Reviewed By Einsteincat - Victoria, Canada

My husband, our two friends, and our babies all stopped here for lunch during our recent Italian vacation. The drive uphill was worth it!
The food, service and wines were all excellent. We loved the wild boar Ragu (best we had in Italy) and also really enjoyed a sausage dish (forget the name).
Unbelievable views from the dining area!
Fully recommend stopping here. Good place to come with kids and babies!

Vignamaggio

Vignamaggio reached its maximum glory around the middle of the XVII century and belonged to the Gherardini family until the 1886. After being owned by the family of Gherardini it was purchased in 1925 by Countess Elena Sanminiatelli; her family restored the Italian Gardens and the Villa. Since 1998 the new owners have started the restructuring of the vineyards and cellars, further improving the quality levels of the farm products.

This is my favourite winery in Chianti, as the grounds and the views are magical. I recently returned after visiting several years ago and was a little disappointed in finding it had more of a 'corporate' feel. Prices were higher, the staff a little snobbier and they seemed stingy on the tastings. The 'free' tasting table was a serve yourself table with little plastic cups and two wines from their collection of over six. We opted for the 15€ tasting with a salami and cheese "platter" but in three, we were only given one board with two to three pieces of each. How do three people share two slices? And they only provided tastings of the same two wines. Nevertheless, it was delicious and beautiful and we had a lovely time. I'm sure i would be over the moon if I didn't know this place years ago, before they were famous. For the wine, I'm not a fan of their Riserva, but I know their Mona Lisa blend very well, it is one of my favourite wines. They do a great job with it. It is a very similar blend to a Bordeaux.
Do have a walk around the grounds, and if your budget allows, try to stay here as guests get many more perks and access.

Want to see something quiet and very authentic? And as it is true, it is not a visible tourist around lunchtime, hardly anyone else, in addition to some crashing cats and quivering swallows.Practically it feels like you have this medieval town for yourself. Find opportunities to take all your photos with a Tuscan feel

The statue in the middle of this picturesque square is of Giovanni di Verrazzano, the man who discovered New York harbor.

We spent less than an hour here on a tour. It was nice to walk around the plaza through the shops and to view the scenic balconies overlooking the street. There was even a tenor practicing in a second floor apartment which added to the atmosphere. There was a very interesting sausage and cheese shop along the way.

L'Orcio a Ca di Pesa srl

Ca' di Pesa is centrally located in Chianti Classico, close to the town of Panzano - at the centre of a natural basin that is referred to as the Conca d'Oro (or golden hollow), due to its rich soil, its exposure to the sun, and the excellent wines that are made there.
