We stayed here for 2 nights in April and were beyond happy with our visit. Although it was Easter Sunday, Torricella still had their restaurant open, and accommodated us with a private wine tour when we arrived. This was our first time meeting Oscar, and we were beyond impressed with his hospitality, devotion to his family and wine. We did not realize how amazing Oscar truly was until later in our trip. Oscar was beyond gracious with our wine tasting and helped us learn about their agriturismo and local area. We were in love with the property - rolling hills with amazing views everywhere - and centrally located to make day trips to all the small towns close by -- and their wine!! It was delicious - especially their Barolo!
We were very sad that we only devoted 2 nights and days to our trip and wish we could have extended it further. It was not until we arrived at MXP airport (approx. 2 hours away) did we realize how gracious, kind, compassionate, and truly wonderful Oscar is. We had a great deal of difficulty with Alitalia and checking in our box of wine onto the plane. Having travelled abroad to different countries before, we are accustomed to the procedures and have not had difficult checking in properly packaged wine. Long story short, Alitalia refused to let our box onto their plane. Not knowing what to do, we called Oscar. He arranged for our box to be held in storage, came to pick up (drove 2 hours each way!), and then shipped it home to us. We could not be more grateful, for such a kind and considerate person to have done this for us. This truly would not be done in other places. La Torricella is a family run business, who treat their guests like family. We will be sure to be back. We couldn't be more thankful and have had a more memorable experience while we were there.
