It was a true pleasure to visit the famous Biondi Santi and taste the world renowned wines under the tutelage of a meticulous and informative guide. The setting of the winery is spectacular and the commitment to excellence obviously continues under the reconfigured ownership.

Santi was the farther of Brunello. Eventually his daughter married a Biondi and hence the name Biondi Santi was born. What is unique is that they have there own clone, which nobody else may plant. The clone is BBS11 and was chosen from 44 clones....More

We stopped at this small, highly rated vineyard and were not disappointed. Our host, Yana, provided an extensive history of the family, the vineyard and the wines. Definitely worth the easy 5 min drive from Montalcino. Call ahead to ensure your tasting.

The estate is nice but not overly special and it is in a beautiful location. Sabini, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and friendly. BUT given you cannot visit the entire estate during harvest, it is really not worth the drive or the €15 for...More

The estate is very pretty from moment you drive off the main road from Montalcino through the lovely tree-lined drive. Don't expect a place geared around tourism - this is a wine estate producing some very fine wine. Until we found the small office we...More

The wine is great, the setting of the winery is lovely, however the service was really bad. I am not sure I will visit again.
