We visited estate last week. Had a private tour of the cellar. Guide was a young lady that informed us with a lot of interesting information about the estate, philosophy and the area. Beautiful place and surrounding. We tasted 5 wines, all of them were great! Riserva 01 was perfect!
One more great thing is that they keep a lots of old vintages that can be purchased with the fair price at the estate + great olive oil.
If you are in Montalcino, you will not regret if you spent an hour or two at the estate.

Col d'Orcia produces some of Tuscany's finest wines, so a visit to this beautiful winery in the heart of Montalcino was a must during our stay at Il Borro in Arezzo. We have always been fans of Brunello di Montalcino and the opportunity to taste this wine was greatly anticipated. All the wines from Col d'Orcia lived up to our every expectation. We highly recommend making a reservation at this historic winery. We were welcomed so warmly, and every minute we spent at Col d'Orcia was memorable.

As with most places in Tuscany a reservation is strongly recommended, however it is difficult to plan your day around. We found out this place had an actual wine shop for direct sales, so we e-mailed them the morning of just to make sure they were open for selling and unexpectedly Lara replied by offering to give a tour and 3 wine tastings for 15 euro.

We showed up on time after midday break and the door was locked and we called Lara to figure out if we were in the right place. A lady opened the doors and seemed confused as to why we were there, but somewhat reluctantly started pouring us a flight of tastings before eventually figuring out that we had made an appointment for a tour. A male tour guide that was not Lara eventually showed up and we were told that they were waiting on another couple that wanted to tour at the same time... I think we were actually that "other" couple.

The 5 minute tour was not done very well or well rehearsed, but I don't think our guide usually gave the tours and the tasting was rather short with little explanation. There were no prices labeled in the wine shop and after the tasting we had to ask for the price lists... otherwise we would have been buying blindly. The wines were not too remarkable, but we bought a case of table wine and a couple vintage Brunellos as they have quite a collection of affordable older vintages, which is unique.

I was also disappointed that none of our tasting fees were waived after buying 100 euro worth of wine and we were not give the option to share our tasting either. I would have rather bought a bottle of Brunello than done the tour and 3 tastings, plus it seemed like the original lady was going to allow a tasting of all their wines for free in the beginning. While I am grateful that they took us so last minute, I believe our experience would have been better if we had booked much further in advance or skipped the tour entirely and just shown up to buy wine at the shop rather than take the more touristy approach.

We Visited the Col d'Orcia winery during summer 2016. The estate is located in the southern border of the Montalcino municipality, in a unique area of this wine region.
We were very suprised by what this hidden gem had to offer, as it seems to be relatively less touristy than the other big names in Montalcino. The estate is immersed in a stunning park with fruit trees, cypress walkways and rosegardens. The park surrounds a beautiful villa with a wine shop, facilities and tasting rooms. Behind another garden there is a big wine cellar, where you will be taken and will be offered to taste wine FROM THE BARRELLS!

Tastings are then moved to a more suiting tasting room and are organized in a professional manner, and the hosts are extremely friendly and well spoken (in English!). Col d'Orcia is rather unique as it is a very big estate for this area. Above the usual Brunello and Rosso wines, they offer a wide selection of other red blends and foreign varieties like Cabernets and Chardonnays. The estate is extremely well kept and the Villa is also being refurbished to add luxury bedrooms. Nevetheless, the part we that was accessible was already very impressive. The biggest upside of the experience, however, was definetly the food. At Col d'Orcia (organic farm) they serve banquets of food on request, fully prepared with estate grown animals and crops, all 100% certified organic. The Pasta with Ragout was to die for, as were the cured meats and the Vegetarian options (on request, my sister is vegetarian). The prices that include tastings, tour and lunch are very fair.

The range of Wines is very wide, for which they can suit any preference. Price-wise they can also cater to any need: they have bottles ranging from around 10 Euros (very nice and fresh young IGT) to 100+ Euros (Old vintages of their landmark brunellos, and the fantastic Poggio al Vento, their CRU wine). The wines are internationally recognized and constantly score over 90+ points in the most important magazines.

Will undoubteldy come back to meet the Count.

We really enjoyed our visit (tasting with appetizers). Lots of good wines to taste. And we were able to buy some older vintages that are not widely available. Shipping to US was not crazy expensive.
