Jackie was phenomenal! So welcoming and knowledgeable! The winery is an absolutely idyllic setting. We did a tasting on her private terrace which was beautiful. Jackie was so knowledgeable and welcoming. I highly recommend this as a stop on your tour!

This was a much different experience from other wine tours that we have done. It was just us, a family of four, being given a tour of a small, private winery by the owner (and winemaker). Jackie is very knowledgeable about her art, and is able to explain the wine-making process in a way that everyone (with or without previous wine experience) can understand. We and our 2 girls (12 and 16) thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Montecalvi. The tasting took place outside in a lovely setting and we all walked away with a true appreciation of this small family-run business.

This restaurant is likely the best in Florence. The pasta is freshly made and the steaks are phenomenal. The house wines at $13 Euros are outstanding. The owner Jackie and head waiter Alberto make this a wonderful dining experience

This past October, my family visited Tuscany. We have two small kids, ages 5 and 6, but we still wanted to experience some of the winemaking for the region. I stumbled across Montecalvi on a traveler's blog and reached out to the vineyard's owner, Jackie, to arrange a tasting and to see if children were welcomed. Jackie could not have been more accommodating or enjoyable. She was extremely responsive and set-up a tasting time based on our schedule. Despite us being 15 minutes late, she was the most gracious host, showing us around her beautiful vineyard and teaching us how wine is made. She was especially patient and kind to our children. When it came time for the tasting, she even had toys ready to entertain the kids! She shared with us wonderful and amazing wines. Her stories, knowledge, and shared experiences only heightened the experience. In two hours, I learned more about wine and tasting then I could have imagined. There are so many vineyards in Tuscany (especially in Chianti) and many are gigantic, but if you want a small, personal, experience, I highly recommend Montecalvi.

Owner jackie accommodated our small group of eight right into her dinning room (lit fireplace ) for our tasting and her wineries history. That personal touch is what your in Italy for.
