So Incredible. Such wonderfully warm and welcoming people
Sep 2019 • Family
I do not have enough words to describe how wonderful everyone is at Cantina Fontechiara.

My small family stayed for two nights in September. My son was almost two. Manuella, Valentina and Sara are wonderful ladies, who looked after us as if we were family. My son still speaks about Sara now.

The facilities are incredible. The wines are gorgeous. We felt like we could have stayed forever.

Thank you so much.

Pleasant family winery experience!
Aug 2019
Together with my family, we recently (August 2019) visited this family-run winery. We had a warm welcome, followed by a short, informative and interesting tour. Later, we were invited to a wine tasting of 4 different wines of theirs & nibbles such as cheeses, bread and cold cuts. Throughout the stay, Sara and her family were very welcoming and we felt at ease communicating both in English and Italian.

Tasting was very good!

We had a wonderful tasting/lunch at Fontechiara Winery. After a small tour in winery itself, we could taste 4 different wines together with local foods (we selected tasting with small lunch).

Wines were very nice and foods (cheeses & salami) were perfectly selected to match these wines.

Excellent, personalized experience!
Jul 2019
My partner, friend, and I had an unforgettable afternoon at Fontechiara. We were greeted by Valentina when we arrived, and she took us on a short tour of the small winemaking facility, explaining what makes their wines different from the others in the region. We then opted for the tasting with food, and were treated to an embarrassment of salumi, cheeses, and bread to pair with the spectacular wines, all served on the small terrace near the cellar. My friend, traveling from Paris, shipped half a case of wine home, and the chocolates with Nebbiolo made an excellent thank you gift for our Italian hosts. It's off the beaten path, but you won't regret spending an afternoon with the lovely folks at Cantina Fontechiara...it was one of the highlights of our trip!

Wonderful family winery
Jul 2019 • Couples
We had a brilliant time here whilst on holiday in Italy, the tour was short but very informative and the tasting was amazing. Generous servings and lots of homemade and local produce! Recommend to anyone even slightly interested in wine! The guide was such a lovely woman and made the whole experience brilliant.

Heavenly wines, warm service
Jul 2019 • Family
We visited on a Monday morning following an impromptu decision and Google search for a Piemonte wine tasting. We were warmly received by the staff who took their time speaking with us and letting us taste the various wines (and generous pours!). Each wine was delicious and we ended up buying and ordering several bottles. Having visited wineries around the world I have rarely found a winery where I love each and every wine. The prices were also affordable as well as the production being organic. A truly lovely family business.

If you can only visit one winery in Italy, visit Cantina Fontechiara!
Jul 2019 • Couples
My husband and I visited Cantina Fontechiara on our last day in Italy and it was the winery we were searching for the entire time we were there. It was hard to choose our favorite because each wine was amazing and had its own unique personality. Really the “best” wine would depend on the event, the weather, or your mood. La Nonna would be great on a hot sunny day. The Vespolina would be great with pizza. Il Nonno would be great with a steak. But what really made the visit so enjoyable was Valentina. She told us about the wines, the owners, the history of the winery, and some about herself. Instead of feeling like you were at a commercial winery, it felt like we were spending the afternoon with a good friend and chatting over great wine. One of our best memories and experiences from our trip.

Amazing experience
Jun 2019 • Friends
Not far from lago maggiore, we arrived in a very typical town, in an old winery perfectly renewed and with amazing details all over the building. The very kind owner took us thu the production processes and land's history, with amazing passion an patience versus a group of 40 people. Happens that the wine is very good, even surprising regarding the rosé but the 5 stars are because of the combination of location, food, wine and how they treated us.... A complete wine experience!

My favorite wine tasting experience
May 2019 • Friends
...and I lived in Napa County! This family run winery produces vegan wine (who knew that was a thing!) and it is delicious. As is all the cheese and bread they bring with each sample of wine, so come hungry. It was such a fun evening with friends, making some new Italian friends. Highly recommend.

Small winery with lovely wines and VERY polished experience.
Oct 2018 • Friends
Beautiful little winery run by Manuela, her Mom and Dad. They offer a wonderful view of the cellars and production process as well as a VERY generous tasting plus hot and cold local snacks--I finally tried horse and donkey meats!
They use natural processes to create their wines and also offer other cool items like wine infused chocolates, silky hand creams and even a lovely light perfume with products rom the grapes in them.
Beautiful location. Park off the road just to the left of the big sign on the main road.
