Amazing taste while traveling through time
BEATRIZ_P
, Aug 2022
We were very welcomed at our arrival. The place is unique. We walked down through an amazing cavern excavated beneath the building. The wine is conserved there until it ages. All is original and transports you to another moment in time. Our guide explained so much about the origins of the Cellar and their owners, the vintage, and the process of making wine. Then, she introduced us to some of their wines and the taste started. Six samples of wonderful wines pared with cheese and bread. All the hosts were knowledgeable and kind. The taste was so good that I place an order of 12 bottles that you can mix among several wines. Price is well managed and includes shipping to your door. I highly recommend this experience.

We live in wine country - California and were interested in seeing the wine country and production style of Italian wineries. Whilest we did not visit the actual vineyards, seeing the aging caves of the De’Ricci wines was amazing. The history and stories of the caves were beyond interesting and added to the entire experience. Being able to taste all the wines from the sparkling to the well aged Niebolo was fabulous and I might add all VERY good. Truly we had a great time in Montepulciano and hope to return some day in the future.

Everything: the tour and the tastings! It IS a beautiful cellar, so the could be correct that it is the most beautiful. It has such an interesting history and it is very unique. The guide was excellent. The wines were great, a couple of cases are being shipped home I highly recommend this!

Wines were very good. The cellars were beautiful but not sure I'd say the most beautiful in the world. For the wine tasting we were told it would be 20 euros each until I showed her our confirmation. A little irritated that they didn't have this information.

Beautiful cellar, lovely wine in Montepulciano

We chose a short 1 hour tour because we had our kids with us. The length of the tour was sufficient. The wine tasting was combined with some snacks, which was catered to our requests (the vegan in the group got a nice salad, the ones who don’t eat pork meat got several cheeses and the others received charcutterie). Our host was probably shocked at all the kids (9 in total) but she handled it really well and was able to explain well all about the wines of this region. If you expect an underground wine cellar and a nice tasting than this is a really good deal.

Very beautiful wine cellar, and very nice wine tasting. The hostess spoke perfect English, and gave us a very nice tour explaining the history of Montepulchano and the wine family. The tasting was very nice, and we bought some nice wine home. My best recommendations. One note. When you arrive to the address, you must enter the backyard, and go down into and through the wine cellar. You will meet the reception in the back.

We had a group of 10 for our wine tasting tour. We found the location relatively easy, a short walk from the center. Ron was an excellent tour guide. We enjoyed the wine tasting and the meat, cheeses & crostini's. We really enjoyed ourselves Thanks Ron! Jeanne & Greg

The staff was very nice. We were 1 and a half hours late as the winery was difficult to locate. When we arrived we expected to just look at the wine, however they were waiting for us and gave us the full tour, lunch and wine tasting. Wine was beautiful.

My husband and I just came back last night from Tuscany. The highlight was this tour given by Ron and his lovely wife. We cannot even describe in words how beautiful this place is and to top it of, the tour of the wine cellars.... incredibly fascinating experience and worth the drive. We have done wine tastings in Bolgheri and other regions but nothing like this. Thank you Ron for showing us an incredible time and the beautiful wine tastings and lunch. The superb cheese selection, the beautiful salad... and of course the wines. We will go back again on our next trip to Tuscany.

This was the best wine tasting and tour that we had while in Tuscany! The wine cellar tour was amazing. Ive never seen anything like it. You walk down several stairs deep into the cellar. The history was fascinating. Ron was our guide and did a great job! After the tour we had a tasting of 3 of their wines and a dessert wine accompanied by wonderful food including cheese, meats, bruschetta and salad. Delicious! Very enjoyable experience. Highly recommend this tour!
