The Fattoria dei Barbi is one of the most famous and historic wine producers in Italy. Since the end of the 1700s, the Fattoria dei Barbi is the property of the Cinelli Colombini family, who have owned land in Montalcino since 1352. Since 1892 it has produced Brunello and it opened its cellars to visitors in 1960. More than three million wine lovers have visited it to date and have been able to see in person the care and attention we put in every phase of production of our Brunello di Montalcino. Besides visiting the cellars, with their countless rooms of oak barrels and the bottle cellar holding wines from 1870to our own day, visitors can taste, free of charge, the wines made by the Fattoria.

We found info about this place in net, and decided to visit them in our trip in Toscana. Not dissapointed! Very interesting tour, a lot of information about history of brunello, production, places and tastes and more and more and more. Wine tasting was very informative too. Good wine and good feelings.

Visiting wineries in Tuscany and Umbria with our son, Dan, who is sommelier. Our hostesses was Simona -she was amazing. Knowledgeable, friendly and her command of English was excellent. Great tour of cellars. Would highly recommend a stop at this great vineyard -one of oldest producers of Brunello

Barbi is situated just outside Montalcino and is one of the traditional stalwarts. No need to make a booking for the tasting. They used to be free but know have four different tastings available. Each tasting comprises of three wines, costing Euros, 5, 6, 12 or 18. Enough is poured to share a tasting between two. All the wines are... More

We got here at lunchtime on a cool, rainy day and spent a fantastic few hours. First, we had lunch at the delicious on-site restaurant. I had a hearty bowl of soup that was perfect for the weather. Next we visited the Cantina and had a marvelous wine tasting with Simona, who was very knowledgeable and friendly. They had some... More

We went to Fattoria dei Barbi in July 2016. There was no need to book a tour in advance, because they have two public tours (at 12.00 and at 15.00pm). The cellar was nice, but the attitude during wine tasting was from my point of view very bad. Even if there were free tables, they told us that wine tasting... More

The wine was good, so I was unable to get them to open anything other than what they had opened already. It was a slightly better-than-average wine tasting and the hosts were cordial but not overly friendly

13 of us received a wonderful tour of a beautiful winery in Montepulciano area. We then had the opportunity to taste 5 wines including the 2011 Reserve Brunello. Our groups ages ranged from 80 down to 13 and we all had a nice time

I went in with my parents who have come to Tuscany for the 1st time and we were treated very badly 2 days ago by a young girl half my age who for some reason didn't greeted us well and acted like we were second class citizens when we came in with a smile, Tuscany is a beautiful area and... More

I was there with my partner 2 days ago, and it was this lady behind the tasting bar. We went in and say Hello politely and she gave us a dirty look in return because she was with some clients. At least she could have say Hello or smile, instead of being so unwelcoming. After that we just decided to... More

Beautiful location however the wine tasting was average for what you expect in this region. Too much effort spent describing a not interesting family history.
