This was our favorite vineyard tour and we highly recommend booking it. We had reserved the tour online and they were expecting us. I wouldn't recommend just stopping by and asking for a tour. The young woman who gave us the tour was very knowledgeable and interesting, and we learned all about their operation. The grounds and the garden areas... More

My partner and I were keen to visit a real chianti winery, so we called in on the off chance. We had arrived too late to join a tour, so instead we were sent to another building for wine tasting.

Our guide stopped at Castello d'Albola for a tasting and short tour, we were impressed with the reds and have continued to get hem since we have been there. In addition the winery has connections with another in Virginia (Barboursville that we have made a point of stopping at recently.
