Superb wine tour!
Aug 2020 • Couples
We were very lucky to be the only two people who had a reservation that day, which made the experience extra special. We called up to book that morning and Simone was very helpful on the phone.

When we arrived Simone welcomed us and gave an excellent and interesting talk through the vineyards history and wine making process before tasting the wines.

We really enjoyed our visit.

I would thoroughly recommend.

Incredible place to visit
Jun 2019
My wife and I visited this winery a few months ago and would highly recommend making the trip! The wine is delicious and well priced. The staff was very accommodating and gave us a wonderful tour of the winery and olive oil mill. They also handle wine shipping so you can easily send home some tasty treats. We had such a fantastic time and can't wait to visit again!

Wonderful Tour
Jul 2018
We just finished a wine tour. It was wonderful. Very informative to see and hear how much goes into the craft of winemaking. The wine, olive oil, and honey are delicious. The setting and view are incredible.

Fantastic Visit
Jun 2018 • Couples
I rarely write a review, but I felt compelled to to emphasise just what a great place this is.
We were given a tour by Simone who has incredible knowledge of wine and oil production, the setting is beautiful amoung the Tuscan mountains, what's more impressive is the organic and bio diverse way the entire business adheres to.
Every product we sampled was of the highest quality, great wine. I strongly recommend a visit!

Amazing place!
Sep 2017 • Couples
Since from the beginning.. The way to reach there, the view, the place, the local production including oil, wine, honey!! Uau!! I will miss that place. It is located in a up hill so the view is privileged. The tour includes an explanation about the production itself and the history from there! The tasty is followed by local production where you can enjoy the wine, cheese, honey, oil... oh my. We spent about 2 hours there.

Superb wine and perfect host!
Aug 2017 • Couples
Well worth a visit to this vineyard, one of the highest in Tuscany where you can enjoy exceptional organic wines and appreciate a view over Florence in the distance!
Great range of wines starting at 12€ for reds... some of the best wine we have tasted in the area at really reasonable prices.
Tasting is free and booking is encouraged but not essential.

Honestly it could've have been better, the staff was knowledgeable and very kind to the small group that I came with. Would definitely go back if I was ever in the area! And of course the wines tasted amazing!

Excellent tasting with lovely staff
Jul 2017 • Couples
The tour is simple and straightforward but interesting for relative newbies in the region. The tasting was also excellent value for money and we had lovely conversations with Elodie as we tried the beautiful wines!

Unforgettable Toscana!
Mar 2017 • Family
I`ve chosen Tenuta la Novella for discover the region with winetasting in Chianti, and it was greatfull. First of all, the people of Tenuta are very friendly, and I`m extremely grateful to Elodie, without her our visit would be not possible. Everything was prepared in advance, via e-mail letters (she speaks English and French as well as Italian!!) and everything finally was very well organised. She picked up us from the railway station and in few minutes of the most beautiful Toscana`s views we were at place. The excursion itself was detailed and very interesting, Elodie talls the things that you have once heard, but never knew fully, about wine in which she is very professional, real expert, but also about the area and the local way of life. After the exursion we tasted the very interesting wines (it`s a real degustation show!!) and magnificent olive oil on the cosy terrace delighting in the inimitable Toscana`s landscapes. So I advise you Tenuta la Novella if you: 1) are looking for the truthful place where the people hardly work and give to their production the part of the hearts, 2) want to inspire the Toscana`s fresh air and admire its unforgettable views, 3) want to get the perfect quality on very reasonable price. Thank you again, Tenuta la Novella, Elodie and Giusy, I finally saw the real Toscana and I falled in love.

Excellent beauty
Jan 2017 • Friends
The location is amazing and the hospitality is great!
We spent few unforgettable days in the middle of the Chianti region.
We bought the local produced BIO wine and the oliv oil...which I recommend!
Only few kilometres from Florence and many other Toscany's attractions.
We will be back!
