    The host was friendly and informative. He explained how they grow and maintain the grapes as well as the process to make the wines. We had lunch with our tastings. I would highly recommend having the lunch with the tastings as the food and wine complimented each other perfectly. The lunch was beatifully arranged. Enjoyed the wine so much that we are having some sent back home to enjoy!

    We had a great experience. Very knowledgeable and breathtaking views. Only wished we got a quicker response from Viator as one of the travelers had knee problems 3 days before the trip and we didn't get a response if there will be a lot of walking. Although the traveler still came to Rome, Italy, she missed out on this awesome tour.

    What a fantastic experience. We were met on time and driven to the wine tour. We were greeted by the owner of the villa and then shown around the property. The tour ended with a fantastic wine tasting event with select wines and bruschetta and cheese pairings. Perfect way to start our Italy experience.
