About
Baracchi Winery is heart and soul of II Falconiere Wine Resort! It is a perfect site to immerse fully into an authentic Tuscan atmosphere. While taking a walk among our vineyards and olive trees we will unfold the enchanting story about antient and modern winegrowing and winemaking techniques. We will take you through the whole wine making process- starting from vineyards, thought cellar and of course champagneria which preserves all of the secret charm of our popular bubbly. At the end we will taste some of our exquisit sparkling and still wines while enjoying the breathtaking view on Valdichiana valley. Family For several decades now, Baracchi family has invested their energy, devotion to continue family viticulture tradition, which has started back in 1860. Our winery was pioneer in producing sparkling Metodo Classico using local grapes such as Sangiovese and Trebbiano, but also the first one making Riservas of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon.

This restaurant is the place to be! Atvthe entrance it looks like a standard wine and focaccia bar, but when you enter and walk downstairs, you will find the restaurant surrounded by wines.
Every dish we had was of highest quality we ever had, especially the tuna! And a magnificent selection of wines!
Personnel is friendly, atmosphere great, hence the place to be, cerianly when at the end the total price is significantly lower than you would expect for such a wonderful experience!

We visited from our hotel in Cortona and the venue were great in setting up our evening.

We had a wine tour at 5pm followed by a brilliant tasting menu for dinner at Il Falcionere. The sommelier took our tour and then served our wine later that evening, by which time he knew our tastes!

The setting was stunning, and food brilliant. It seemed like it was mostly hotel guests eating at the restaurant but I would certainly recommend others to book in if staying nearby.

We booked the wine tour and three course lunch with wine pairing. €85 seemed a very reasonable price for such an informative tour and an incredible lunch at a Michelin starred restaurant.

Our already high expectations were surpassed! Francesco was a great tour guide. He was welcoming and friendly, extremely knowledgeable, very happy to answer questions and totally brought the experience to life. Thanks to Giacomo, the resident boxer dog for accompanying us on the tour. A lovely dog is always a welcome addition.

The wines were delicious and the lunch was nothing short of a masterpiece.

The owner Benny Baracchi came to chat with us and was very friendly.

There was no hard sell of pressure to purchase wines but they were so good we bought a case or two to enjoy at our villa and back in the U.K.

I’d highly recommend this to anyone who appreciates good food and wine, and also for the amazing Tuscany views from this beautifully maintained property!

We had a wonderful wine tasting and are excited to take delivery of our wine once it arrives in the US. The owner gave us an informative and fun tour, we learned how to open a bottle with a saber and best of all, the wine was fantastic. Everyone at the winery was knowledgable and enthusiastic. While we didn't take part in the lunch, we saw a great set up for those who did. The grounds were beautiful and it was a fun afternoon.

We visited this winery after booking onto a 12pm tour. The winery is part of a large family owned complex which also contains a Relais Chateaux hotel called Il Falconiere (you won't see any signs for Baracchi on the road itself). Our party was myself, my fiancee and my in-laws, one of whom has limited mobility and can only walk short distances with sticks. We were some of the first to arrive so we were sat at tables on the terrace. Once other people started to arrive (some of whom were guests of the hotel) one of the members of staff asked if we would like a lift in a car to the winery (200m along gravel path). This was a great help for my mother-in-law and she was whisked off to the winery while said member of staff gave us an introduction to *his* wines. Turns out the member of staff giving our tour was one of the owner's sons, Benedetto (which I hope I spelt correctly), who seems to be in charge of wine making.

Benedetto was very friendly and funny, he obviously knew everything about the vineyard as it sounds like he has been the driving force behind a lot of local parcel (vineyard) acquisitions. We had a quick tour of the champagniere where the sparkling wines are stored for second fermentation (where we met my mother-in-law). We then walked around into the main warehouse where the fermentation tanks were in action. Again, Benedetto was very informative and very patient with some questions that were asked several times. The skies then opened and we were all whisked back to the reception by car.

We were treated to a glass of sparking Sangiovese (which Baracchi apparently pioneered several decades ago) and some focaccias. We were then split into two groups, those who had booked lunch and those who hadn't. We hadn't so I can't comment on the tasting lunch. However, we retired to a lovely cool tasting room bounded by wine racks where we sat with Benedetto and simply chatted for about an hour. We tried at least 4 wines, each one a healthy pour to allow you to fully taste both with and without cheese/bread/meat. Baracchi makes something like 15 different wines so they focus on less wines to taste but better volumes. Which we enjoyed. We tried a white that flies off the shelf, a lovely syrah, a pinot noir which blew my nose off and a lovely rounded 50:50 syrah/cab sav which was my favourite.

The winery does shipping and my in-laws ordered a case of 6 for around 30euro postage. I'll definitely look at ordering some more in future.

On this trip my fiancee and I have visited more wineries than I can count, this was by far the best experience!

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Italy. My only regret is we didn't get a chance to spend a few days here. We stopped for a winery tour and lunch on our way from Florence to Rome. The wines are amazing and the food was beyond amazing. As a food and wine lover, I have to say it was one of the best meals I have had in the last 15 years. We visited with my 3 sons, one of their girlfriends and my parents. Everyone said this day was the highlight of their trip as well.

We had a great time touring and eating at this winery with a large group of friends and family during a wedding weekend! The owners are very fun and very passionate about their wine. Our lunch at their restaurant was one of the highlights of our time in Tuscany!

This was our first stop once we arrive in Cortona. The views from the patio are absolutely beautiful, the wine and tapas were delicious. This has become one of our favorite places to visit. The host made sure to prepare a lite snack for us. We just soaked up the flavor of the place.

We had arranged for a private tour and tasting with the owner, Benedetto. Not only did we learn about the grapes, the process and the philosophy of this fantastic winery. Afterward Beneditto organized for us an incredible sabrage! The Sangiovese brut is outstanding, the same the red wines. Great experience.
