The walk through the historic cellars is amazing. The tasting room felt intimate and entertaining. The wines were fantastic. The lady who served us was a delight to talk with about wines, life, travel, history, and politics. Overall, a delightful experience!

We had a great time walking through the cellar and tasting the really nice wines. But the best part was the woman who served us the wines (didnt catch her name). She took the time to chat with us about Italian history, different wines from different parts of history, and the similarities between Donald Trump and Silvio Berlusconi. Loved it!

Crazy wine cellar, lots of steep steps with slanting steps, that you need to hold the railing. But fun walking down and up, just the same. Such experiences as this are part of this wonderul town. A very friendly and kind Holland woman gave us the tastings. Great wine and a wonderful Vin Santo.

This was a great wine tasting experience and chance to see a wine cellar with huge barrels right in the city of Montepulciano. Serena, the hostess at the cellars, was very friendly and informative and spoke excellent English (HBO English is how she described it). Here explanations of the wines was excellent and the range of tastings was very good.... More

Didn't know what to expect and was blown away by it. Magnificent space. Thought I found a secret passage way into an unknown space. Also, enjoyed the very, very old Etruscan space that exists in this cellar. Amazing. Wine was good too!

Great to be able to walk around the cellars on your own, not in a big your group then try some very nice Montepulciano wine.

We went here on an organised Tuscany tour and it was a really interesting and eye opening experience. We were given a tour underground through the cellars and then had a wonderful tasting with meats and cheeses. Well worth a visit

The owner of our rental house in Siena recommended that we go here during our day trip to Montepulciano. What a great place! We had a self-guided tour of their underground wine cellar, which was different than anything else we had seen. It was beautiful! There is a gorgeous view at the top of the building and it was a...
