Amazing!
Sep 2021 • Couples
We had an absolute amazing wine tasting experience at this small farm. Giacomo is not only an excellent host, but he is also very passionate about his grapes and wines. He will let you get to know the wines, and let yourself decide if you want to buy. He will not try to pressure you.

In the tour we tasted 4 completely different wines, but were all very tasteful. We saw the vinyards and also the cellar and te small factory.

We strongly recommend this winetour to everyone who loves wine.

Want to know more about this famous wine? This is the place
Jul 2021
We were on a tour through Italy and one of our goals was finding out more about Brunello di Montalcino. We stayed at one of the registered producers, il Cocco, in their magnificently restored chateau. They serve a very decent dinner, of course with their own wine and grappa. The owners, a young couple, are the vintners themselves. Cocco produces some 10.000 bottles of the famous wine yearly and integrates revenue by allowing the public to stay at their property, either in your own motorhome or in one of their lovely rooms, and get an idea of their work and their products. The building is truly spectacular.

Some advice, based on a very personal opinion: I would get rid of the parking space for motorhomes. To my opinion, they don't fit into the total picture about exclusive wines. In other words - make the place a little bit more premium. You are a camping or you're not.

Very nice winery experience
May 2021 • Couples
Very intimate experience. The owner/operator was the one to guide us through his little winery while tasting his excellent wines and accompanied by delicious “cold cuts”, cheese and fresh bread.
All for much less than any other Tuscan winery.
We had a delicious dinner in the restaurant there (you can have either/or. They are open for lunch and dinner).
We left happy with few bottles of wine excellent wine to take homer also had a delicious dinner there (you can have either or)

Always a Wonderful Experience
Oct 2019
I have been visiting Il Cocco for years and just realized that I've never written a review! My experience here began when I was traveling solo to Italy and did a wine tour that visited the property. I was so impressed with the beautiful estate, the hospitality and of course, the wine. My husband finally got to visit a few years ago and see where the delicious wine that he drinks all the time originates from and he was equally impressed. And then, last year when I brought my father to Italy for what will probably be his only visit in his life, Giacomo arranged for a private tasting and explained the viticulture and answered all of his many questions. This alone will forever endear me to this family and solidifies my loyalty to their brand but you would be remiss to be in the area and not arrange a visit. The passion and creativity for all things involved in the winemaking process is obvious and the respect for the land, nature and the symbiotic relationship of all the things that live and grow there is admirable. Don't miss a chance to visit this beautiful estate. We plan on staying overnight at some point as well.

An unforgettable experience in an amazing Montalcino vinyard!
Aug 2020
My family and I had the most wonderful experience when we visted Il Cocco. The vinyard is set in the most beautiful surrounds with lovely views in all directions. We started the visit with a delicious lunch (as a family we voted it the best meal we had on our trip which included a number of amazing restaurants). There was a choice of starters, primi and secondi courses so between the four of us we tried a variety of dishes all of which were superb (with a special mention for the Wild Boar Stew!). Giacomo then gave us a tasting of the various wines all of which we enjoyed and have ordered to be delivered. Giacomo is an excellent speaker and is extremely knowledgeable about wines in general and his in particular so we spent a very informative couple of hours in his company. I absolutely recommend a visit to Il Cocco to include lunch - it is an unforgettable experience!

Delicious lunch, tasty wines, excellent service
Aug 2020
We visited here for lunch and loved everything about it - it was a very authentic experience in a warm and down-to-earth agroturismo and winery. The service was excellent and the food was Tuscan style in the best sense - simple but incredibly delicious recipes made with fresh and high-quality ingredients (vegetables and herbs from own garden), and perfectly cooked. Their wines were so tasty we ordered a dozen shipped home. Bonus pats with farm dogs after lunch.

Excellent wines, informative tours
Aug 2020
Friendly and informative wine tastings run by this small-scale organic producer. The wines are excellent and light. Having been to many a wine tour, we have learned much more than we expected.

Happy to have Il Cocco wines at our home!
Jun 2020 • Couples
We visited Giacomo and his crew five years ago and have stayed in touch because our visit was so personal and focused on our interests. This week, while we cannot see each other, we were happy to order a case of their excellent wines, which were well priced and arrived quickly. While we are enjoying the wines this summer we will be thinking about Giacomo, his family and the beautiful property at Il Cocco.
