What can we say- this was absolutely one of the best things my wife and i did on our trip. Jenny was our guide, she was wonderful, knowledgeable, personable, and great fun! We had the luck of being the only two on this tour to the San Francesco vineyard which was gorgeous, and the wine and food were delicious. The pairing of the lunch, cooked by the families that own the vineyard, with the wine was the best part! We highly recommend the tour!

What a great experience.From the moment we were picked up to being dropped off and the communication with Jenny leading up to our tour was exceptional.Our driver G was a delight and a great character......I call him G only because i can't spell his name.....When we arrived at the vineyard way up in the mountains our Sommelier Cristian showed us around the vines of which some were 300 years old and the story of why they were so old and how they survived is amazing.Cristian's knowledge and passion for wine is second to none and that rubs off on you as he explains in detail the process from earth to bottle.We were lucky on this trip in respect of that we had with us great company in the shape of 6 fellow wino's from Chicago we all just seemed to rub along quite well.After our tour of the vines we then were shown around the vats and how the grape becomes wine and finally how it settles in beautifully hand crafted wooden casks.I loved how when we arrived we were introduced to the family who own and run this very special place and in turn greeted like we were old friends.The finally of this amazing experience was the food and wine that we all received.Everything was locally sourced and cooked to the highest standard.Forget about your fancy restaurants, this was italian food cooked the italian way and cooked by the family.....Sorry by the beautiful wife's.......Oh and one last thing...The wine that was paired with the food was outstanding....

Dear Jonny,

Thank you so much for the wonderful review and we are so glad that you enjoyed the tour to Tenuta San Francesco! We love to hear how much you enjoyed the experience in the vineyards and at the winery, especially as the family makes great wines and cooks the lunch on site with such love. Your driver Gaetano is quite the character and we will certainly share with him your lovely words.

Thank you again for joining the tour and we hope you came away with some great memories and new friends!

I found out about swirl the glass on TripAdvisor and am so glad we booked it. Was picked up on time at our hotel in Positano. Enjoyed the drive to the vineyard. Once there, Christian gave us a tour and explained the wine making process. Lunch was prepared by the family who owns the vineyard and was delicious! Plenty of food and tasted 5 wines that are produced there. Of course we bought some to be shipped home. Christian answered all our questions and he really knows his stuff. Enjoyed getting to know him and the winemaker at the vineyard!

Mille Grazie to Cristian and Jenny!! We thoroughly enjoyed a spectacular afternoon experiencing the ancient Abbazia di Crapolla with it's vineyards, olive orchards, and wine production in the old abby. This is only one of several vineyard tour locations they offer. We loved the spectacular views of the Sorrento coast and Mount Vesuvius while tasting the fine wines produced there, along with wonderful courses of food prepared by the owner and family. Cristian has a deep and thorough knowledge of all things wine, making this a great experience for my wife and me who do know something about wine through our association with vintners on the West and East coasts of the USA. Cristian's experience also extends to being the head sommelier at La Sponda at the Le Sirenuse where, despite his extensive responsibilities, he made us feel very special. Cristian and Jenny know Positano well, so they can share much helpful information. A visit to Positano requires an afternoon with Cristian and Jenny.

Grazie mille, Tom and Loretta!

It was an absolute pleasure to have you on the tour with us to Abbazia di Crapolla. It's a wonderful winery and we are so glad you loved the home cooked lunch and of course the views and atmosphere.

Cristian and I absolutely loved chatting with you about wine and we are excited to explore some Virginia wineries when we next spend time in the area!

Thank you again for spending the day with us!
