When you arrive at Paradiso you will feel completely immersed in the harmonies of Mozart.Weather permitting, your visit will begin with a walk around the Mozart vineyard, located directly opposite the hill of Montalcino. Paradiso's team will welcome you and explain everything about our 'Music and Vines' project. The visit continues inside the old wine cellars where you can learn about how the wine is made.Quando arrivate al Paradiso vi sentite immersi a tutto campo nelle armonie di Mozart che si perdono tra i filari delle vigne e delle colline avanti a voi. Tempo permettendo la vostra visita inizierà con una passeggiata sul poggio che ospita il vigneto di Mozart, sito proprio di fronte al colle di Montalcino. Quì sarete accolti e informati dagli operatori del Paradiso sul progetto Musica & Vigne. La visita continuerà nelle antiche cantine che comprendono parte del rinnovato fabbricato, che risale al medioevo, ove potrete apprendere i vari cicli produttivi enologici.

We had a great time visiting this unusual vineyard. Imagine the grapes maturing to the classical music that is piped over the fields...soon to be coaxed into a delicious bottle of fine wine! It was an interesting tasting and explanation of the concept being tested. It was even more surprising that MIT and Bose...innovative institutions from our hometown...are behind this... More

From the moment we drove up and saw the sun splashed hillside vines and then heard the relaxing Mozart music playing throughout the property, we knew this would be a special stop and it was more than that. Carlo, the owner, is extremely passionate about music and its impact on the environment. Having Mozart playing on the 82 Bose speakers... More

We had a great time when visiting Il Paradiso di Frassina winery in the countryside near Montalcino. Stately winery with casks and wine barrels in aging room below. Nice and informative tour of vineyards, winery, property and tasting of Brunello and 12 Notes in the charming facility. Highly recommended. ...

Our B & B host, Paolo, brought us here for a tour with the owner, Carlo. What a gracious tour guide! He explained that the music of Mozart helps him to grow grapes organically, by repelling pests and encouraging growth. We walked through the vineyards, listening to the beautiful music, and seeing the evidence ourselves! The vines having less access... More

My wife and I booked a visit to il Paradiso di Frassina after someone recommended it to us. Part of our honeymoon trip to Italy was to visit vineyard, do tasting and learn more about the different regions : this one was by far our least favorite. We were brought to the cellar and told "this is our cellar" and... More

frassina, Proprietario at il Paradiso di Frassina, responded to this review

First of all I apologize to you both for your justified complaint ... Unfortunately, in mid-September it's harvest time and in the meantime we had a large number of visitors, many of them without reservation, that probably disoriented the officer tastings (not sure if it was me or my son Ulisse); for this reason perhaps there has been not detailed...

You come for the wine, but you will also enjoy the music. Excellent backstory on the effect of music on grape yield. The Brunello here is fantastic, but dont forget to try his 12 grape masterpiece.

An excellent visit with a personal tasting and tour of the vineyard. We were taken to the vineyard by a local who explained the science behind the playing of the music . The vineyard has Bose speakers throughout the hills with Mozart playing to the vines. It was very quaint and relaxing .

Lovely apartments located in the heart of brunello vineyards - classical music played thru the day and evening added to the Tuscan experience. Apartments were well maintained and well equiped with essentials. Would recommend Il Frassina as a convenient place to stay while exploring the area.

Wonderful visit to this unique winery that plays Mozart to the vines. We had a group of 7 tour the vineyards and taste their wines. Great wines!
