About
Piombaia is a biodynamic family vineyard. Francesco Cantini, the current winemaker and last generation of Rossi-Cantini's four generations family winemakers, implemented biodynamics in the production of all our wines: Brunello di Montalcino, Rosso di Montalcino... The whole philosophy of vineyard production is based on biodynamics where the use of fertilizers, pesticides and industrial herbicides is avoided. Biodynamic agriculture uses vegetables and mineral preparations as additives in the soil, as well follows-up a calendar based on the movement of the stars and the lunar cycles, it's basically returning to the ancient knowledge of how wine was made at the beginning of time. Piombaia offers guided tours through the vineyard to learn more about our particular winemaking process and wine tastings. We also offer a 4 course meal-wine tasting accompanied by 3 or 4 wines including Brunello di Montalcino, all dishes are made with fresh products of our own agriculture.Reservation required

Francesco was a personable guide around the wine cellar. We enjoyed hearing the history and the focus on harmony. We reserved the picnic which was an amazing experience. The 20 minute uphill walk was worth it for a memorable picnic with a breathtaking view of picturesque Tuscan hills. Delicious Sangiovese and Brunello wines, too. I would absolutely recommend this unique experience.

It was a great afternoon visiting the vineyard, cellar and then the osteria the other side of the road for a great meal and talk with Francesco, the owner and winemaker

Was great to see how biodynamic agri and wine making work, and then have a filling meal while tasting different wines including Brunellos

It was a joy to combine that with a chat (turned into a very long personal discussion) with Francesco on the history of their winery, their journey to organic and biodynamic and his philosophy in winemaking. His views and passion of biodynamic practices as a sustainable and holistic approach were very refreshing

great food, wine and company (notable mention of the 2016 Brunello and the very red Rosato)

Looking forward to our next visit and sit together with Francesco

Hello,

This wonderful farmhouse is tucked deep in the woods on the top of a hill.
This view is one to see. The hospitality is warm and friendly.
The food is delicious and wonderfully paired with the delicious wine.
The cozy dining room is open to a courtyard covered in vines over your head.
It is a gorgeous setting.
It was one our favorite experiences. The walk around the farmhouse is relaxing and beautiful. This meal was one of my favorites. We had 10 family members to include 2 children. I would consider driving to the farmhouse unless you are in great physical shape. The trail was a bit too challenging for my husband, myself and grandbabies. If you choose to take the trail to the house, wear appropriate shoes and clothes. I hope to return here to visit again. Thank you for an experience of a lifetime.

Our group of four booked a wine tasting lunch experience through Avventure Bellissime as part of our Tuscany day trip from Florence. Although the entire experience was fantastic, Piombaia stood out as the clear highlight. We loved learning about biodynamic farming and how it works, and our hostess, Angelica, was friendly, warm, and very knowledgeable about the process. Our table was set up under an enormous tree, and each course was more delightful than the last. Meats, cheeses, fresh olive tapenade and incredible bruschetta (the tomatoes were divine), fresh made pasta with incredibly fresh, delicious cherry tomato sauce, and a chocolate biscotti/cake that I only wish I could make myself. Best of all, the wines! Each one paired beautifully with our meal, and they were delightful, particularly the Brunello. You will want to ship a case home afterwards. The entire experience was so organic, not contrived, right down to the random roosters and chickens pecking around and the lovely Pablo, the giant white dog who graced us with his presence. Best. Day. EVER!

Visited the lovely Piombaia bio domain with a small group of 8. The tour was given by the winemaster himself and his passion, knowledge and enthousiasm were very much appreciated. This is a family owned operation producing mainly very high quality Brunello. We were also privy to a beautiful 3-course lunch along with the generous wine-tasting. Having the owner/winemaster with us made it even more special. The lovely and shy cook came to greet us and we all applauded her.
This visit was one of the highlights of my trip to Italy.

Very easy to find, scenery was magnificent, made to feel so welcome - almost like part of the family. We were travelling with a 6 month old baby and 5 adults. Accommodation and facilities were clean, comfortable and inviting. The wine!! well what can I say, I wish I could have stayed longer so I could enjoy more of the beautiful wines! Highly recommend Piombaia

This was booked for us by our tour guide Silvia.We specifically requested a traditional meal, and being wine lovers we wished to sample local wines. We sat in the garden under a gazebo.We had an absolutely excellent experience.

My wife and I stopped here for lunch during a half day wine tour. Every wine we tried, even their table wine, was excellent. We shipped a half-case home.

A late autumn sun dapples its glow over the Tuscan landscape of hills, vineyards, and olive trees as the van slowly wends its way across the ridge by Montalcino and then into a colorful forest to the gateway to the family estate of Piombaia. What awaits on the other side of the gate are the vineyards, barrels, and bottles of wondrous brunello wine, the passion of a winemaker caressing the grapes and speaking of the excitement of engaging the improvisational variations and mysteries of each year's harvest, and the warmth, not only of the sun, but of the family and friends who live and work here. We explored the vineyards, feasted on local cuisine, sipped wines married to the place, and shared stories. Settle in, be dazzled, get happy. Thank you Piombaia!
