I went with my Italian boyfriend (I'm American). The property is gorgeous and peaceful. We stayed for the dinner which was totally worth it. The owner explained the wines and we are really into wine so we had good conversation. The owner then left at the end of dinner and we were left with the wine! In the barrel room! So fun!!! My boyfriend and I noted even if we drank a good amount of wine we didn't wake up with a hangover which is usually due to the quality of the wine.

When we were leaving the owner then suggested a few places for us to visit on our way back to rome. We took his advice and ended up having a really great time.

One thing I'll say is that the dinner is with the other guests so it was a little awkward suddenly being put next to strangers to share dinner with but we managed and it was fine. Maybe if we go back I'll try to invite another couple or go with a few friends so avoid strained conversation.

Last note, Massimo and Tina were super helpful!!! Seems like they have a great team!

Thanks for your visit, thanks for sharing. Great our wines did not lead into headaches: Mother Nature never gives us a headache - all our wines are biologic and organic. We love providing opportunities for connecting with others - we flourish in diversity. Looking forward to your return!

I cannot believe I forgot to write a review about this fantastic property/experience..... You need to visit this winery / hotel / property. The views are to die for, the rooms are spectacular, and we had the opportunity to meet the owner and have a dinner with him - it was unbelievable. The rooms are actually quite nice, more on the modern side, but really nice. Breakfast is a huge treat, you get to meet people from around the world. And we were there on a Saturday night, the owner took all of us on a vineyard tour, then we had dinner in the cask room. It was a great experience. Only "negative" - the vineyard is up fairly high on the hillside, it can get cool in the fall. Just be prepared to dress warmly - it is worth the stay....

Room tip: There are two types of rooms: ones right up in the actual building where the casks are, and then rooms down the hill in small villas. We took a room near the casks - it was really nice.

Everything that is good descended into this plot of land. Once you check in you will never want to leave. It is a beautiful vineyard on a quaint Tuscan town. Modern spacious rooms with a terrace over looking the vineyards... walking paths that goes on an on through the property, beautiful sit outs offering amazing views... a great breakfast setup... and the most helpful and friendly staff you will ever come across. Massimo and Julia are the nicest people you will do everything possible even if it means going out of their way to make your stay memorable. The only bad thing is, you cannot stay here forever.

Dear Anirban - it was wonderful to have you as our guests. Thanks for inspiring Valdonica and leaving this spirit with us. In the resonance we grow! Please come back soon, especially when Karma is back from vacation - he is from West-Bengal and his spirit is closely connected to Valdonica.

Can't say enough good things about our stay at Valdonica. We flew into Pisa and wanted to do the whole wine tasting tour around Tuscany. Picked Valdonica based on the other reviews. They were spot on! We had dinner with Martin the owner, this is a must! Cost 39 Euro and is a 4 course meal with 5 wines, very good food and the wines were amazing! He spoke to us about the vineyards history and the different wines that are offered. His story alone was worth the dinner! The view from our room was fantastic and the staff was also very friendly and helpful. This is not your mainstream hotel but a lovely vineyard that caters to a quaint, but modern style. If you want to stay on a vineyard and have a great experience, don't think about another place, stay here. We will definitely be coming back!

Room tip: All the rooms face out toward the vineyard

We first booked 3 nights here but as soon as we got there it was love at first sight and we decided to stay for 6 nights.

The owner and staff make you feel at home, the rooms are nice and comfortable, the view is beautiful and the breakfast offers fresh bread with local jam/honey and prosciutto/salami/eggs. Better than a traditional boring hotel breakfast.

Also a special mention to Massimo, the manager. He was so welcoming, friendly and professional that we had a great time there. He also speak French, so please speak French to him.
