Absolutely Indulgent
Jul 2019
We picked up the telephone to this winery at about 9 am from Florence. The person we were talking to suggested that we drive to the winery for the 11 am tour. They were extremely helpful and gave us instructions on how to get there. This is the only Kosher Winery in Tuscany. We had a little difficulty getting there because we kept missing the tiny slip road but eventually all was well. We were met by Daniele Della Seta who owns the winery and manages it. We arrived in a restaurant on the premises and told that we would be eating lunch there after the actual tour. The farm and restaurant are run by Daniele's wife Maria Pellegrini. We set of on foot together with another couple from USA. The scenery is spectacular and Daniele explained in great detail the grape growing industry. We walked (in the unbelievable heat) through the vineyard into the wine press and finally into a most beautifully decorated atmospheric wine tasting room. We tasted two wines there and were given little snacks to eat with the wines. The room is dimly lit and one sits on high stools on long bar tables. After this extremely enjoyable event, we returned to the restaurant for lunch. How can I even begin to describe this lunch. The food was dairy and vegetarian and my daughter who is vegan was catered for. This was fine dining at its best, beautiful presentation and exquisitely tasty. Wine was served with this meal. The staff were so attentive, smiley and helpful. The meal was extremely relaxed and absolutely indulgent. A truly spectacular visit, they set out to give us a real Tuscan feast and they certainly achieved this.

Terra di Seta Kosher Winery & Restaurant
Sep 2019
We traveled to Siena by train from Florence & stopped in that city to see the synagogue. It was locked but it was not our target destination. We were actually headed to the kosher winery Terra di Seta in the Tuscany hills. Wow!!! What an amazing dining experience. Everything was fresh from the garden & absolutely delicious. I cannot explain what a wonderful gastronomic experience this was. There were many courses...delicately small & beautifully presented...& by the end of the meal totally satisfying. It would be a shame to come to this region & not experience this wonderful restaurant at the Terre Di Seta Kosher Winery. The ambiance is lovely & the chef incredibly talented. Enjoy!!!

Nice overview of Kosher Winemaking
Jul 2019
The tour provided a very nice overview of Kosher winemaking and also in general feature of the wine industry in Tuscany. This was done via a walk amongst the vines, a visit to the winemaking facilities and finally tasting 3 wines. It was very good value for money. One small downside - not well signed posted from the dirt road.

Truly wonderful kosher vineyard experience
Jul 2019 • Family
Beautiful vineyard, really informative tour, excellent (non-mevushal) Chianti and Rose, and outstanding (chalav Yisrael) traditional Tuscan cuisine. Daniele and Maria love their farm and their life, and it shows in the welcome they give their guests and the care they take with everything they grow and make. So glad we visited Terra di Seta! They also have a beautiful guest house.

Tuscan Gem for the Kosher Wine Enthusaist
Jun 2019 • Couples
The winery is situated on a Tuscan hilltop overlooking Sienna and not far from Florence. The setting and views are beautiful, the tour was informative and the wines (both the Chianti Classico and the white Meshi) were excellent. But the showstopper was the lunch after the tour.
All of the dishes were delightful, and the glass enclosed dining area was beautiful. The pasta was made fresh on premises, the sea bass caught that morning and the eggplant Parmesan unlike any I have ever tasted. Not to be missed.

Not enough superlatives to describe this slice of heaven
May 2019 • Friends
There truly aren’t enough words in the English language to adequately lavish on this incredible Tuscan gem. I learned of Terra di Seta on a Sunday evening, immediately emailed the proprietors who were beyond gracious and speedy in their response, and by Monday morning I was on the train from Florence to visit this incredible winery and cantina. Maria and Daniele greeted us upon arrival and instantly made us feel like their honored guests, a rarity in Italy where customer service is often not a priority. The winery’s grounds are like a postcard while the physical structures are also impeccably maintained (the winery’s restroom boasts the honor of being the most modern as well as cleanest public bathroom I had the pleasure of using in all of Italy). Come for the tour and tasting, but absolutely do stay for the lunch which features the freshest, most delicious dairy meal I have ever enjoyed in my life (this is a definite must). Tierra di Seta affords the kosher traveler the opportunity to enjoy a true Tuscan food and wine experience, an unexpected opportunity. This slice of heaven deserves to be better known but part of me wants to hold on to it just for myself...it truly is that amazing.

Enjoyable kosher winery tour and dinner
May 2019 • Couples
We were in a group of 4 couples from Israel touring Tuscany and we booked an evening tour, kosher wine tasting and dinner at Terra di Seta.

The drive up from Siena is through amazing Tuscan scenery. Daniel the owner took us to see the beautiful vineyards and their new winery. His explanations were fascinating and we enjoyed the kosher wine tasting. Dinner was in their small family restaurant and consisted of delicious homemade soup, pastas and other traditional dishes. We enjoyed it very much. It was particularly gratifying to have such a high quality kosher experience in Italy.

Special boutique wine tour in a great price
Nov 2018 • Couples
We had a great time with Daniel in the wine tour. The vinyard is located above high hills and you get a great view. Daniel explanations about the wine making process were interesting with much details. He talked with passion about how they raise the grapes and the olives in a way which fits the climate and the surface. The tasings were very nice - the wine was great, the tomato was super fresh and sweet, the extra virgin olive oil was excellent, and the cheese was the best cheese we had in Italy. We bough 2 bottles in the end, in a very good non touristic price. Thanks Daniel! Definitely worth a visit.

Amazing experience and great kosher wine
Jul 2018 • Couples
This is the only kosher winery in the chianti classico area.
The tour starts in the vineyards. Daniel (the owner) told us about the winery, how the wine is produced and what regulations exist in the chianti classico area. The scenery is absolutely stunning.
After the tour we went on to the winery for tastings. We tasted four of their wines and each one was excellent. The wines were served together with cheese and bread with olive oil and tomatoes (olive oil is produced locally).
Daniel was also nice enough to drive us to the bus stop outside the winery.
Honestly, this is the best kosher wine we tasted in Italy and throughout our trip we bought several bottles to drink with dinner. Overall a fantastic experience!
