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 winery with a very lovingly designed ambience. Ilaria gave us a guided tour through the vineyard and the olive grove with passion and very informative. Tasting was very nice just from the sight and was very good. I can only recommend to everyone.

Very informative tour regarding the production of the wines with beautiful impressions of the villa. Tasting was also very well guided. I can recommend.

The visit was quite fast, but the wine tasting was quite good. The wine was really nice and the quantity gave a good price/quality ratio

So informative! Beautiful landscape and property. Our guide was so kind and the olive oil is amazing.
