Attraction details
Owner description: Vignamaggio reached its maximum glory around the middle of the XVII century and belonged to the Gherardini family until the 1886. After being owned by the family of Gherardini it was purchased in 1925 by Countess Elena Sanminiatelli; her family restored the Italian gardens and the Villa. Since 1998 the new owners have started the restructuring of the vineyards and cellars, further improving the quality levels of the farm products.

I am a massive fan of Much Ado About Nothing - but this visit was so much more than a fan visiting the location of a film. It was a wonderful trip full of history and meaning. Highly recommended.

We drove through Tuscany in search of this winery due to other reviews on this winery! We were NOT disappointed... Mavro was fabulous, entertaining us with stories and great insight into the Fitzgeralds!! loved actually getting to see the bottling and process. Wonderful wine tour and tasting experience! Glad he taught us how to properly taste and distinguish the flavors...

We didnt go in but it looked lovely. The pretty gardens really set off the restored stone work of the buildings

We hired a tour guide for the day to drive us around Chianti (easier then renting a car in Florence and trying to figure out how to get around yourself). As part of our tour went had a tour of the winery (just 4 of us) - the tour was very interesting and informative. We were reading the labels on the wine bottles the rest of trip - looking for the rooster on the seal and other designations.

We had a lovely lunch on the terrace overlooking the vineyards. There were wine pairings for each course. Our guide had asked them to make a traditional Toucan Soup called Pappa al Pomodoro (bread soup with tomatoes) - it was wonderful.

The view is amazing - we would love to stay here on a future trip to Italy.

PS our guide was free - for the tour and lunch.

Alessandro was an excellent host full of interesting information about Chianti production. We opted for the 25 euro tour which we felt was good value for money
