It was a true pleasure to visit the famous Biondi Santi and taste the world renowned wines under the tutelage of a meticulous and informative guide. The setting of the winery is spectacular and the commitment to excellence obviously continues under the reconfigured ownership.

We stopped at this small, highly rated vineyard and were not disappointed. Our host, Yana, provided an extensive history of the family, the vineyard and the wines. Definitely worth the easy 5 min drive from Montalcino. Call ahead to ensure your tasting.

It was a great drive just to get to the villa. The staff who gave the tour was very friendly and knowledgeable. The tour was interesting and the tasting was the best part :). Definitely worth the drive and visit!

The estate is very pretty from moment you drive off the main road from Montalcino through the lovely tree-lined drive. Don't expect a place geared around tourism - this is a wine estate producing some very fine wine. Until we found the small office we...More
