“Commercial yet worth the visit”
Review of Fontanafredda

One of the larger wineries in the region. A nice place to have a delicious local lunch at a low price while you do a little wine tasting. The staff is super friendly, the dinning room is very modern and light giving you a chance to watch the chefs as they create your meal. The menu changes daily. The purchase wine selection seems endless. They do give tours but we skipped it in lieu of the meal/wine drinking. No reservations needed.

This is a a beautiful vineyard with a huge tasting facility, gardens with great walking paths and a very good restaurant. It is worth a visit if you are in the area.

It is rare to find such a large and well kept estate. Fontanafredda has a unique history, and generally seems very well kept. The tour of the cellar and the tasting is a bit commercial, but is still worth it.

Learn a lot, taste a lot, see a lot and walk in the woods. Not as commercial as it might seem. Interesting history of the place and an important role in the founding of the Slow Food Movement.

This is one of the best wineries in the region. We didn't try the restaurant but it looked great and concentrates on local food. There is also a Michelin star restaurant being built on the property.
We missed our booked tour on Tuesday by 15 minutes and they rescheduled us for Thursday. Great to hear the history of the property and see the cellars with huge barrels of wine aging.
