We decided to visit Fontodi as we like their wines. We booked it via online form, please note that replying via email doesn't seem to work..(!!) though the response from online form is quick. The tour is so so, not sure if it is free or they just don't need to please visitors.... we did taste their highest class of wine which is very generous of them. The winery is quite pretty though not very big.

This was one of the bigger wineries we visited in the area. The replies (when making an appointment) from this winery was speedy which was well appreciated. The whole bio-dynamic process was insightful and we even managed to view the bottling process! The tasting was good, we managed to taste 5 different wines. They also produce olive oil which is extremely fragrant. We liked it so much, we bought a bottle of the oil but sadly when we got back to the hotel, we realised the bottle was leaking. Nevertheless, still a good visit.

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.

We went here for wine tasting based on the reviews. The tasting was average at best, not a great deal of attention was paid to us and we were given limited information about the wines. It's ok but not as good as others in the area.

We were given a 'private' tour of this bio-dynamic winery....the visit was wonderful..we followed the gravity feed process through to the bottling a packing area with a tasting afterward. The family that owns the winery were manufacturers of terracotta (evidenced throughout) and are experimenting with distillation in large terracotta urns which we found fascinating...the wines themselves were very palatable and would certainly change the run-of-the-mill perception of chianti wines....a great experience thank you.
