“Best tasting ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2014

We loved every minute of our visit. The food was excellent, the wine pairing and explanations were very well done, the villa was perfect. We felt like honored guests. Actually liked their wine better than any of the other vineyards we've visited. Of course we had to send our favorites and some fresh oil back home. A perfect day in Tuscany. No one could ask for more.

“Excellant lunch & tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2014

After a tour of the winery, we sat down to a fabulous lunch with a ragu lasagna which was out of this world! Wine was paired with each dish. We also had a pork dish that was also excellent. The wine was great!

“Best part of our trip to Italy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2013

Our visit to Castello di Monterinaldi winery was the highlight of our trip to Italy. Fabrizio and the team did an excellent job from our meal to the tour of the winery and their gardens and surrounding vineyard really are wonderful and beautiful. Their wines and olive oil were great and we ordered both to be shipped back to the states. Highly recommend that if your in the area to visit this outstanding winery to be treated like royalty.

“Stellar experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2013

The grounds were immaculate, inviting, beautiful. Our luncheon/wine tasting was hosted by a warm, friendly Fabrizio (love that name!!) who educated us about the Chianti region, the history of Monterinaldi, the vineyard, and the wines. My daughter and I were in a large room with a Steinway piano, a crystal chandelier, and antique furnishings. Another guest came in and played the piano, to our delight. It was so fascinating to see the rows and rows of barrels in brick passageways and to learn what the differences were in flavor a and grades of wines.
I would repeat this trip and recommend it in a skinny minute.
