“Fine wine in a fantastic location.”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

It would not be right to visit the Chianti region without tasting the wines produced there. This is one of the best places to do it. This is a family run winery and there is normally an English speaker around to guide you with tasting and explaining how they produce their very special wines. If you have the car, no problem, buy a few bottles and enjoy, you could well be tempted to pop back and buy a case. its a great place to visit and the views are beautiful.

“The dream spot where the Chianti shows its very best”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

Monte Bernardi is a truly wonderful villa in the middle of the Chianti Classico region, just a few hundreds metres south of Panzano, well placed on the Chiantigiana road. We spent a fews days there and fully enjoyed the beauty of the place, set in the renown Conca D'Oro, one of the most acclaimed Chianti wine producing areas. The villa is incredibily charming and provide all sort of comfort you may wish. The Schmelzer family runs the villa with so much care and dedication, and will make you feel completely at home, your Tuscan home!
Montebernardi is also a boutique winery, 100% focused on the pure essence of Chianti Classico. Their wines do deserve a try, always, in particular at the winery, sitting outdoor while combining the pleasure of a nice glass of Sa'Etta together with the beauty of the landscape. I love their style, rather respectul of the deepest Chianti tradition, where the Sangiovese grape remains the noble backbone of the local wine. Shall you want to experience an unforgettable time in Chianti, stop by Monte Bernardi, undoubtedly a spot not to miss.
