Lots of reviews are written about Banfi, a multi-million bottles kind of winery. Don't need to add to that. Do yourself a favor and ask to peek into their calmly aging Balsamic barrel "bank", and ask to taste it. Thank me later !

This is the best winery I’ve ever been to. They have their own castle. The owner was there and very nice to us. They also make olive oil and balsamic vinegar which we purchased and shipped home.

What a gorgeous drive leading up to the winery. Just breathtaking. And once there, the grounds are just as beautiful. Didn’t have time to take a tour but visited the tasting room which was as lovely as everything else Banfi.
