Fontodi wines are delicious. An appointment is required. Upon our arrival, we were not greeted very warmly by the staff however once the hostess arrived, she treated us kindly, with an educational experience. I recommend a making an appointment for a tour and tasting.

We were staying at the villa owned by the Fontodi family and asked for a tasting at the winery. Very nice wines and excellent tour. The Chianti Classico, Syrah and Vin Santo were all excellent. The hospitality was fab.

You do not have to book ahead of time, but I suggest that you contact them and arrange a suitable time, as they can then organise to show you around the winery.
