  • Beautiful farm amidst the vineyards of Chianti. We chose to do the Tour of the castle on Sunday (called "weekend on the farm", so one must book cost 15 euros) which consists of a first round of vineyards accompanied by very nice and professional guide, Mrs. Ines, (in English) that illustrates the characteristics of the vineyards and wine. It then ascends to the estate (Castle) with around in the cellar itself. to follow you can visit the beautiful castle gardens. Then you pass the tasting of Chianti Classico wines 5/6 with its explanation, accompanied by salami and bruschetta. very fun and magical atmosphere! highly recommended!

  • We only stopped for quick wine tasting. The room was very full fue to a group but still overall nice experinece and great landscape. Easy to reach from Greve in Chianti 
  • While visiting Tuscany we were looking to do some wine tasting and after a couple of failed attempt near Florence (wineries either closed or not answering) then we looked towards Greve and decided on ...  read more »
  • Beautiful place. Leonardo Da Vinci lived here for short period.
  • We spent 4 days at Vicchiomaggio, early October 2015, and it was an excellent location to have as a base to tour around Tuscany, taking you into the heartland of the rolling hills and valleys of this beautiful area. Good food, great wine, from their vinyards of course. Great accommodation, and loads of culture left from the last century. A must see place, to experience.
  • Top place, beautiful setting in the castle for lunch which consisted of Pappardelle with wild boar sauce and Mains was Beef Ragu with thin beans and roast potato
  • Have a feeling that the winery is the main business concern here and guests are treated as second fiddle. Breakfast is mediocre and there is zero atmosphere in the dining room. Staff walking around the complex were generally unfriendly. However the infinity pool is brilliant. Shame they shut it for cleaning for 2 hours in the middle of a Sunday afternoon when it was 35 degrees and there were half the hotel guests around the pool totally puzzled as to why this couldn't have been done at another time! Staff completely unapologetic, lied to my face saying the pool always gets cleaned then and I should check the rules, I did and the rules said Thursday! Finally hotel manager came down to pool to unenthusiastically apologise, giving the impression it was somehow 'our fault'!?! Wouldn't stay again unless all staff were replaced with people who were customer focused!
  • Nice food. Great wine. Helpful and friendly staff. Did I mention the great wine?!
