Nice but a tad overpriced

This place is gorgeous and the food is good. But it is a bit far away from Montalcino and where I was staying at Maestro Janni

Excellent for what it is.
Sep 2019
Understand the Banfi is a large Commercial Operation. It is Beautiful, well done, and large. It is NOT a small local operation with that kind of feel. Given that the Tour was excellent and informative, and the Caves, with the large casks, are more interesting than many. The tasting was excellent too. They make first class wine and there are many "upscale" selections if you know what is what. All the staff was wonderful, but especially at the tasting where they seemed committed to making sure we enjoyed, and learned, about the many bottlings. The only negative thing I have to say comes from the effort involved in getting the case we ordered delivered to the States. Such a dismall experience I might even suggest that it should not be done. Really a shame and embarassing blemish on what otherwise was a great tour.

Amazing visit of the production facility and a beautiful tasting
Dec 2019 • Couples
We had the pleasure of visiting this iconic property, and we were blown away by the level of hospitality. This is a huge property with a lot of history (recent history), that showcases new and innovative solutions in the wine business. We came away from our visit with a stronger appreciation for the region, the culture, food, and sustainability in the region. Wines were delicious and explained well by staff that seemed to take pride in what they were doing. Highly recommend a visit!

Banfi - Beautiful
Oct 2019
In addition to a tour of the stunning winery, enjoy lunch at Terrazzo. The meal with wine pairing is the best!

A huge name in the industry... lacking the personal touch.
Jul 2019 • Family
Although this place is a must see... it’s very commercial. The land is huge, the installations are impressive, the museum is ok but not a must.
However, plenty of options when it comes to tasting and eating.
Nice to see because of its prestige/status but many other vineyards are proposing also an exceptional experience with a more complete and personal touch.
If you don’t care to spend... they offer personalized tours with dinner.... 270€ per head. You can also check their accommodations.

Feels like Napa
Jun 2019
Over priced tastings for the quality of the wines. Feels like a very Commercail operation like Napa. They are many better places to go to get the feel of the area.

"Disneyland" winery
May 2019 • Family
Do you like visiting Disneyland? Probably yes. Fairytale is all around, everything is very clean and shiny. It is fun. Same here. It can be due to American origin of the founders/owners, however, you get to see the facade of wine making only. And it is very well organized, and very clean, and rather expensive. Yet it is probably worth it because of fantastic castello totally restored after WWII , state-of-the-art winery, and rather impressive cellar.
What you do not get is vineyard visit, discussion on what makes Brunello so special, how different cru translate into different wines, and how it is finally bottled. After 1.5 hour of the tour we knew less than after 10 minutes of reading of Banfi's brochure.
What we definitely recommend is to have multi-course lunch with Banfi wine pairing after the winery tour.

A good stop at wine estate
May 2019 • Friends
Wondering around this wine estate. They offered wine testing as well as a variety of selection for you to purchase. There was a restaurant as well but it was fully booked so we didn’t try. The staff there was kind enough to recommend and book us another good place nearby. Lovely.

Love the wine - love the winery
Oct 2018 • Couples
What a great story. The tour of the winery showed us some of the innovations being done here. And the wine is great to boot.
Had the good fortune to meet John Mariani and what a gentleman.

The Most Beautiful Vineyard
Sep 2018
There are two faces to this gorgeous vineyard. One is that this is the state of the art of making wine. They use an optical scanner to help chose the grapes that make up their wonderful wine. The other side of this endeavor it that this is a beautiful place with incredible service and they offer a magnificent lunch with wine pairings. They also have a hotel on site that offers beautiful accommodations and a spectacular pool. The entire experience is memorable because they are so kind. If you are in the region, do not miss Banfi.
