We enjoyed the whole experience. We booked this wine tasting in winter, probably not the ideal season cos the weather is so unpredictable and the vineyard is not in its full bloom but despite that we had fun learning about the history, the process and the wine tasting itself. Our guide/host Ilaria is very warm, welcoming and very knowledgable. She considered us, being beginners, during the whole tour, so she explained the basics and everything in layman’s term. It was a very interesting and wonderful experience. We learned a lot and ordered a few wines to take home cos they tasted that good.

Very easy to find meeting point as was sebt direct instructions and pictures. Was met by a lovely lady, Rosa, who gave us information also on surrounding buildings and the areas we were going through. Very much enjoyed both of the wineries/vineyards, different and both interesting

Rosa was an amazing guide! She was like the sweet, loving, and cool Grandma you’ve always wanted. Small group of 5 total which made it an intimate setting. I was impressed with the quality and quantity of wine. Learned a lot about Chianti in Radda. I highly recommend this tour!

Beautiful landscape, learning a lot in the wine tasting. The best of all was our fantastic guide Rosa, with her warmth, soft voice, 100% English and historical knowledge. Thanks Rosa!!

The second winery was really good. We visited in October so the grapes were already harvested and we didn’t get to see them but everything else was amazing!
