What you'll do

After visiting our vineyards and cellar, we propose you a tasting menu to explore our own range of wines and the tasting of traditional Tuscan food such as Pecorino cheese, Truffle salami, pickled zucchini or artichokes and other Tuscan specialties selected by Raffaello Viani: forty years experience in the selection of Tuscan fine food. Depending on which weather we have, the tasting is taking place at our cellar or at our amazing deck just above our vineyards surrounded by the nature. A unique way to discover Tuscany, its territory and its fruits. We love a lot to share our knowledge, first because we follow our philosophy:
The region in which we are privileged to live and work
is our legacy and our true heritage.
We have a duty to love him and
treat him as a divine gift.
We would like to share it with you in a moment of intimacy
and pleasure represented by what you are about to enjoy.

My name is Raffaello and I manage the farm since 20 years, following my personal feeling and the almost a century of family production. I match the passion for wine and oil with my personal experience in the tuscan food area (delicatessen and cheeses) for about forty years, to offer to my guests a very high quality selection of wines, oils and foods. Starting the fantastic "adventure" in the agricultural production, I choose 3 main directions: 1. To be Organic; 2. To look for only for the quality, without compromise; 3. To stay linked to the tradition and the territory. This is my "mission"!!

Where you'll be

We’ll visit the vineyards taking a walk till our panoramic deck on the vineyards where you can know the vine breeding techniques and, if it’s the right time, you can take part too at the pruning or defoliating operation (just to get a sample) to transform the visit in a "real" experience. We go back at the farm to visit the cellar and to understand our way to product wine and oil. At the end of the tour we enjoy the wine and food tasting.

We enjoyed this experience and had a nice afternoon at the farm. For the first 1.5 hours we sat on a deck with the hosts son and made small talk while we waited for the tour to start. This was a nice time but not what we expected and it seemed like they were just running late and trying to fill time. Then we went up and had a few courses of appetizers and wine pairings and tasted 2 olive oils- the food was amazing and seemed authentic to Tuscany. We never saw the cellar or got a tour nor were we shown how they make the wine/ oils. There were also a few small children on the experience which definitely changed the vibe and we would’ve chosen an adults only experience had we known they allowed kids. Overall, we had a nice afternoon but it just wasn’t exactly what we expected/ true to the description. We would recommend this if you are looking to be served a few appetizers and wine in an intimate setting but not if you are looking for an educational experience about wine and oil production in Tuscany.

Raffaello and his wife are amazing! We felt right at home and were able to experience a wine tasting and tour that was off the beaten path. His wife cooked incredible food while we were able to laugh and get to know Raffaello.

Ho partecipato insieme al mio compagno alla visita della cantina di Raffaello in una giornata di dicembre. Posso dire, senza alcuna esagerazione, che è stata una delle più belle esperienze che ho vissuto in toscana. Raffaello è una persona speciale. Ci ha raccontato tutto della sua piccola attività agricola: la passione con cui raccontava del proprio lavoro si percepiva in ogni sua singola parola. Ci ha insegnato a potare le vigne ed abbiamo persino provato a sistemarne qualcuna. A chiudere la visita, una gustosissima degustazione composta da prodotti tipici del territorio ma soprattutto dal suo indimenticabile Olio e dai suoi vini più pregiati. Complimenti anche alla moglie Donella per la sua creatività nel proporre i prodotti e la sua estrema simpatia. Una magica esperienza che consiglio a tutti!

Best part of my two week trip to Italy! Raffaello and his wife were absolutely wonderful! I attended the wine tasting with my grandmother and she agrees it was the best part of the trip! Please book this experience, you won’t be disappointed! The wine, food, location and hosts were simply perfect.
