Oh, what view!

It was a cold, clear day in early January, so very little was open. But the view was stupendous! We hope to return next time when we can visit the winery.

This place was highly recommended to us and we were rather disappointed. Eight of us came for lunch which was served on the terrace...a lovely spot. The service was not good and the food was average. And expensive. Perhaps try it for lunch just for the position but don't expect too much. The "tour" of the monastery did not appear... More

Having traveled with many groups of friends around Tuscany over the years, we always try to book an evening or afternoon cooking class at the Badia owned by the Stucchi and Di Medici family. The day inevitably starts with a tour of the gardens and facilities, followed by a few hours learning memorable recipes and then a wonderful meal with... More

Great winery, very good wines, a very good guided tour around the Badia monastery. The tour starts every half-hour (13.30, 14.30....) . The last visit is at 17.30. The tour and tasting of 3 wines costs 10 euro. Interesting to see the wine cellar.

The property is stunning as are the gardens and the guided tour is educational You learn little however if the wine on the tour (so not a real vineyard experience) and with only 2 wines to taste - despite the fact that they produce Vin Santo , Grappa etc rather a disappointment all in all

We toured many wineries in Tuscany, but this one stood out as a different experience. Every winery can show you their vineyards and barrels, but the caves underneath the castle offer what few others can. We stood in a room with bottles dating back to 1937 and almost every year since, all perfectly preserved due to a naturally occurring (and... More

We spent 2 nights in this historic converted abbey perched hilltop with stunning valley views. The buildings, garden & pool area are all beautiful, but when it came to the accommodation we had to remember it wasn't a luxury location despite the prices. Our double room in the main building, was enormous & atmospherically furnished with period pieces ( felt... More

We arrived late for the tour but they still allowed us join in for the tasting and afterwards we were free to wander the grounds of this beautiful restored 11th century Abbey. The estate is well known and widely available but we decided to visit after a local wine shop owner recommended it as one of his favorites. Turns out... More

We have visited the Abbey at least a dozen times in the last ten years and it continues to bring us great joy. The staff is friendly and efficient, the food always excellent and the setting perfect for a glorious afternoon in Chianti.

Really worth going for a wine tour and tasting. Not expensive, interesting history that goes well back in the centuries and not a boring tour at all. Well explained and Sabrina, our tour guide, was really prepared on any question we asked. Highly recommended
