Unique approach to lowering the carbon footprint while producing a boutique set of wines. Very friendly and interesting staff with an incredible views of the surrounding area and vineyards. Plan on spending a couple of hours enjoying yourself.

We were here to meet our private tour guide to take us through a couple of towns in Tuscany. While we were waiting we decided to have tapas and a wine tasting in the winery/enoteca. Good Call! The specialist gave us a great tasting. My only complaint is that he was a little stingy on the pours! No, a lot... More

After reading an article on top wineries in the region we booked an appointment for a wine tour and lunch. Amazing views of Montepulciano. This was an amazing experience and one of the top highlights of our visit. I highly suggest you take the wine tour. It takes time and is worth learning about the environmental sustainability standards that set... More

We went for the wine tour, wine tasting and lunch. Quite a unique place with the use of geothermal energy, light energy and conservation. Hosts were quite pleasant and knowledgeable. Try the Salco. Fantastic wine.

We visited after reading good reviews but were very disappointed. It felt like they didn't care about occasional visitors since they seem to have paired with a tour company that brings people by the van load. We asked if we could taste and were given a range of their wines while the hostess gave us very scripted explanations. When we... More

Very mediocre food. 19 euros for a "3 course" meal of spaghetti w tomato sauce, 2) one slice of grilled eggplant with a dollop of ricotta, and a plate of deli ham/cheese. Totally unremarkable for the price. Staff was not friendly either. Not recommended.

We booked a wine tour and tasting at Salcheto after reading good reviews about the place. Overall it's a nice winery but it was pouring rain when we visited so we couldn't take advantage of the fabulous views the location offers. Nonetheless the wine tour was informative and interesting, and followed by a tasting of 5 different wines: all for... More

Unbelievable view of Montepulciano from this winery. We did the tour and lunch. This winery is committed to complete sustainability. Eco friendly in every way, even with their lighting system. It was most impressive and interesting. After the tour we had lunch with wine pairing. There was a choice of 5 menus...I chose the Tocana. The tomato soup was delicious.... More

We visited this winery last week. A reservation is required as is the tour of this interesting facility. After morning in Montepulciano we drove across the valley (15 min of in a very rural and dusty road) to arrive at salcheto. The views are breathtaking. This facility is relatively new and has used some very creative technique to obtain its... More
