Perfect weekend
Oct 2019 • Friends
We were there for a long weekend with some friends. A perfect weekend, we did the cooking class that was very funny and interesting. We also had a very nice tour at the winery. It was the best tour I ever had. It was at the time where they were harvesting very very interesting. No wonder people a coming back to this place.

Highlight of our time in Florence!!!
Jun 2019
My boyfriend and I had such an amazing time!!! The one thing my boyfriend requested for our trip to Italy was to go olive oil tasting. It is a little out of the way coming from Florence because you have to take a train to Pontassieve then pay for a cab but it is SO WORTH IT! We learned so much about olives and the history of the windmill. Our tour guide Tatsu also took the time to talk about the wine they grow on the property. The personal touch and attention to detail showed how much he loved working there! Their olive oil was amazing and we ended up getting a sample of wine too! We ended up buying olive oil and getting lunch at their little deli. The spread they put together was incredible! I had the best charcuterie plate and my boyfriend had a grains salad! It was a beautiful, relaxing day! We will for sure return to Pontassieve.

ill Be back for round 2
Aug 2019
My friend and I did an Italy trip and without a doubt this was our favorite part of the trip. The Tuscany area is beautiful and getting to spend 6 hours there was amazing. I wish I could stay forever. Transportation was great, the two wineries we visited were so fun and getting to spend some time wandering nearby towns made you feel almost like a local. You can’t be the price either. It was amazing!

Amazing Tour and Wine Pairing Dinner
Jul 2019
Amazing Tour and Wine Pairing Dinner. Our gracious host/owner gave us an thorough and most informative wine tour, topped off with truffle hunting! We then ate dinner at their delicious restaurant with breathtaking views.

Hunting truffles with dogs, amazing, then a marvelous, memorable meal!
Apr 2019 • Solo
Before heading for a tour of the wine cellars we accompanied Paolo and his dogs Peggy and Pippo out into the forest to hunt for truffles. It was good exercise going up and down the hills, and good for the spirit to be out there in nature gathering food with the help of another species. By the time we got back to the farm I was high on the experience and quite determined to convince my friends that they too must come to the farm and do the same thing. A life lived without a single truffle hunt is barely a life lived at all!

Later, at the farm ‘Mulino A Vento’ restaurant, chef Mirko Margheri cooked us a vegan feast. We ate at a table overlooking some of the farm’s vineyards. There was cacao coloured pasta with a hint of truffle, savoy cabbage wrapped in broccoli leaf sat in a masala and turmeric chickpea cream, a colourful starter made from pureed veg, and a sorbet for dessert. We drank ‘Puro’, which is 100% sangiovese, and ‘Pachar’, a blend of Chardonnay, Sauv Blanc and Viognier grapes (which are all grown on the top of the hill to the east of the restaurant). It was excellent wine, and all the better because it was made with grapes from the fields within sight of my table.

Stunning views and great experience
Jun 2019 • Couples
Lovely staff, clean spacious room. Delicious breakfast! My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here. The restaurant is expensive but good food. Ask the front desk for alternative recommendations. We found a little festival and ate pizza in a nearby town which was a lovely surprise! Worth the splurge to stay in Tuscany and the wine at Fattoria Lavacchio is incredible.

Breathtaking Views and Product
Mar 2018 • Couples
Truly a gem in so many ways, Fattoria Lavacchio was a highlight for us while in Firenze. The trip was a short ways away from the city and the staff made arrangements for travel from the train station, so it was perfect. Tatsu was a wonderful, knowledgeable host and guide and showed us the beauty and potential of Tuscany. We loved all the products produced by them, esp their 2017 reserve olive oil and their Chianti.
