In this modern age where technology has taken over and where it is often better to send a text message instead of calling or talking, manners can sometimes be forgotten. Fortunately, for those who still hope to improve their subtlety, we've created a private course with the international program for adults 'Etiquette of wine' about the 'Good manners with Wine'.

    Los vinos excelentes y los aperitivos muy buenos también. Pena que los vinos sean tan caros, que lo valen, seguro, si no habría comprado unas botellas.

    Acquistato con il pacchetto del pernottamento presso Hotel Vecchio Asilo di Torciano. Esperienza unica che consiglio a tutti. Dopo aver parcheggiato l'auto una ragazza ci è venuta a prendere con la golf car e ci ha introdotto sulla storia della tenuta facendoci vedere i vari vigneti,uliveti, dove fanno lezioni di come andare a cavallo,caccia al tartufo ecc. Poi qualche foto a parte della tenuta dove fanno anche matrimoni e poi la lezione su come degustare il vino e cena presso questa Tenuta immensa. Ci sono stati subito serviti i vini in degustazione, 6 calici e insegnato come degustare. Ottimo l'insegnante. E' stato un peccato non visitare tutta la tenuta tra cui le cantine. C'era un matrimonio americano e parte della tenuta non era visitabile.

    Mi è stato regalato un voucher per due persone comprensivo di pernottamento per una notte, una cena presso Bottega Torciano e la degustazione a Tenuta Torciano. La prenotazione del pernottamento è stata un’impresa poiché il calendario non dava mai disponibilità nel fine settimana ma solo dal lunedì al mercoledì; fortunatamente siamo stati poi contattati dalla struttura che è riuscita a trovarci una camera presso il “Vecchio Asilo - Tenuta Torciano” per il venerdì. Due giorni prima di partire, la brutta notizia: la camera non era più disponibile! Di conseguenza siamo stati spostati in un hotel vicino San Gimignano. Per il disguido abbiamo chiesto che ci venisse organizzato il transfer dall’hotel a Bottega torciano ma anche questo servizio è stato scadente in quanto nessuno aveva avvisato il driver di passare a prenderci. Dopo un sollecito, sono finalmente arrivati ma con 30 minuti di ritardo. Cena a Bottega Torciano da dimenticare…bruschette non degne delle tradizione toscana e carne cotta male e molto dura. Si son salvate solo le tagliatelle al ragù di cinghiale. Degustazione a tenuta torciano molto soddisfacente: ottimi i vini e i prodotti locali e sommelier all’altezza.

    This family owned Winery welcomed our group of 9 at the end of a day of visiting San Gimignano and Siena via vans. We were greeted warmly and ushered into an authentic wince cellar room for our tasting of 10+ wines. Before each person was a plate piled high with meats and cheeses to accompany the wine tasting. Since we thought that the bountiful plate would be all the food we would receive, we all were overwhelmed by the owner's generosity when a white truffle lasagna was served later in the tasting. Needless to say, none of us needed dinner that evening! This is a top-notch winery with superb wines! We were fortunate to arrange a local tasting here in our city in November 2022. Since they sell only to individuals, we continue to order from them each year!

    September 15, 2022 A FIVE STAR Experience! Luigi made this experience with his personality, charm, humor, knowledge and experience of the wines paired with the delicious food we ate. For starters a small plate of bread, meat and cheese with local olive oil and balsamic paired with four different wines. Followed by a local traditional soup with a spicy olive oil paired with a wine that enhanced the flavor of the dish. Next was a family lasagna recipe paired with three additional wines which was absolutely delicious and a truffle olive oil you don’t want to miss. If that wasn’t enough, the main dish was a slow roasted pork loin with roasted potatoes and of course, more wine! Dessert biscuits were homemade biscotti and an amazing Rosé. An experience of a lifetime! Be sure to ask Luigi to sing a song as it just enhanced the day!

    Wine Tasting at Tenuta Torciano...well it wasn't just wine that we tasted. There was first the tasting of Tuscany’s San Gimignano countryside, which no photograph could possibly capture, manicured with lush vegetables, grapevines, and olive trees. Next was the welcome, like coming back for that summer visit at your grandparents’ farm. Paolo drove us around the grounds so we could take a peek at the work that goes on year round, to witness their love for their 300 year old winery, what they are able to produce, and their stewardship toward our earth’s treasures because of their great desire that this will endure. Next taste was the winery’s settings for the many experiences you can choose to take in –lunch in the garden, cheese & wine tasting, a traditional Fiorentina steak & wine dinner, cooking classes, a romantic lunch in the vineyard, grape & olive harvesting, truffle hunting, archery, olive oil tasting, helicopter wine tour - so many opportunities, such timeless surroundings. We then entered in to the wine tasting room, tables elegantly set with an array of wine glasses. We were seated and met their other guests who came from a variety of countries around the world. Lillo introduced us to many of their wines, explaining to us the history, the processes, & the procedures in making such great flavors. Lila kept us supplied with a wonderful array of freshly made foods prepared with ingredients from their gardens following beloved recipes passed down through the generations: trays of coldcuts, cheeses, bread, the BEST bruschetta I have ever tasted – made by Massimo, ribollita soup which I had so wanted to try – and I was not disappointed!, and their Grandmama’s lasagna with a drizzle of their own truffle oil on top. Melany and Ida popped in to say hi. There was so much JOY in meeting each of them who we had shared Friday evening zoom cooking classes with throughout 2020. But we weren’t finished yet. Lendi and Stephano brought us to the olive groves, learning more about the importance of rescuing the olive trees, and to meet our own adopted olive tree. From there they drove us around to enjoy the incredible countryside. Ours was just a day trip, chock full of all the warmth & welcome of a family reunion. If your schedule allows more time, you can relax and rest in the San Gimignano countryside at the Torciano Hotel. Don’t miss this unique and refreshing opportunity.

    This past week my husband and I were on our honeymoon in Italy and went to a wine tasting at this vineyard. The vineyard was very nice and the wine was delicious. However, the instructor of the class was extremely rude. We learned about the wine and how to taste it properly however the instructor kept pushing the class to buy the wine and mentioned it 5 or 6 times thought out the tasting. To the point where our table got a little irritated because he was being so pushy. At the end of the tasting, the instructor was giving away wine corks to people in our class. So my husband went up to him to ask him for one of the extra corks as a keepsake - he said “you can buy a bottle”. When my husband proceeded to ask more questions about the wine, the instructor couldn’t give him the time of day, didn’t even make eye contact and rolled his eyes. It made him feel uncomfortable so he just walked away. We were going to buy a couple of wines until that happened and we were completely turned off. The instructor mentioned he was a relative of the owner which makes it worse having a such a bad attitude. Even though the place was nice - we were very disappointed with our instructors rudeness and bad attitude. We would not go back and not recommend this vineyard.

    My husband and I had a wine tasting and lunch here. The food and wine were wonderful and Andrea did a very good job explaining the wines. He was very knowledgable and funny. We had a great time.

    We were pleasantly surprised with a wonderful wine tasting with a large group. We had some seating problems which the proprietors quickly solved giving us a seat at the presentation table. Great seats! We are big California Cab fans. We do enjoy Italian Barolos and Brunello's. Chianti was not a wine we enjoyed; until, we tasted Tenuta Torciano's Chianti (learning about the black rooster band). The wines were all good. Our favorite is the Grandfather's wine which we had the opportunity to taste. The balsamic vinegar was very good. The truffle oil was aeromatic and delicious. We are awaiting our shipment of wines, vinegar and truffle oil. We left with a bottle of wine we enjoyed. Thank you for the wonderful tasting. We highly recommend. We look forward to a personal tasting on our next visit.
