We booked a cooking lesson and lunch through a local agency and had a fantastic tour, lesson and lunch prepared for us by the Chef, Lucca. The tasting room staff, Maria, translated our lesson for us and they were very gracious. Wines were delicious and a great change of pace from the usual Tuscan reds. We would love to come... More

We made reservations for a lunch and wine tasting for 7 adults and 3 children. The food was delicious and freshly prepared by the chef. Everyone enjoyed what they had ordered. Our hostess did a nice job telling us about the wines and serving the table. They were short staffed (our guess) and did not offer us a tour of... More

This being our first trip to Tuscany, but not out last, we were hoping to find a centrally located home base that we could travel through Tuscany and much of Italy. We rented the loft for four weeks, our longest vacation ever, and the Tenimenti d'Alessandro and grounds exceeded our expectations in every way. Upon returning home to the U.S.... More

We had this arranged for us- a cooking lesson and tour and tasting at the winery. We were def not disappointed. The entire location was stunning- we got to tour the grounds where the the wine is made and the apartments with spa-like facilities that are across the road. This is a small slice of paradise in wine-making country. After... More

We were very limited with time, and had speedy tour of wine cellar, but it was really great. Property itself is amazing, with winter gardens and lots of sculptures. Interior of restaurant was so unique and interesting. Minimal and yet with so many details to check out. Food was soooo good, paired with wines of course. Wines were really good.... More

Impressive location worth every minute you spend there either touring the vineyard, the factory - where the magic happens, the hotel, cooking from their vegetable garden, everything is impeccable. The Villa is situated about 15 minutes from Cortona, in the Valley of Chiana, surrounded by mountains, pine trees and yes, vineyards, previously owned by a Tuscan noble family. There is... More

Stumbled across Tenimenti d'Alessandro when we were unable to find a winery that had been recommended to us. Chose their degustation Lunch option. The food was just magnificent and the accompanying wines were fabulous - there were even refills offered. Unfortunately, we missed photographs of each course as we dived in immediately we were served ...
