About
We are a small 100% kosher winery and restaurant in the heart of Tuscany. We make hand-crafted genuine Tuscan wines in small quantities. We welcome tourists for full meals, wine tastings as well as visits of the vineyards upon reservation. Everything we cook comes from our own vegetable garden and orchards. We also produce our own extra virgin olive oil, cheeses and jams.

Amazing food and activities
Aug 2021 • Family
Thank you to Eli and Lara for not only delicious food (I’m still dreaming of the fried zucchini blossoms) but also for helping us set up an array of amazing activities. Is there any better way to experience the Tuscan countryside than through a tour (and tasting!) Of their winery, a boat tour of Ebla island accompanied by an onboard 4 course meal cooked by a personal chef, a morning truffle hunt, and a pasta making course? I think not- it was perfect.

Unexpected
Aug 2020 • Friends
Who would have thought to find a brilliant delicious atmospheric restaurant in the middle of the Tuscany hills. This is the place. Our host Elie is extremely personable and knowledgeable and his wife (who we only briefly met as she spent most of the time in the kitchen) have founded an impressive place. Food was delicious. we sat outside in an atmospheric courtyard in the middle of a tiny village unexpectedly enjoying a delicious and exquisite meal. Be prepared to pay somewhat for the privilege but it was the highlight of our day. highly recommended

Amazing People and place
Jun 2019
We found Eli and Lara by mistake when looking for Kosher food and wine. They are the most pleasant people. Lara runs the restaurant. All the food comes from their Garden / farm. Fresh cheeses, delicious flavorful meals, and excellent wines. When preparing our meal, we watched Lara go outside and cut fresh herbs. Eli and Lara take a lot of pride in their winery and freely showed us around the winery and the Orchard/Garden/Farm. We spent a week exploring Tuscany but always found our way back to the winery. and ended up eating there twice a day almost every day. I look forward to going back again.

You can get there by TAXI!
Jul 2019
We enjoyed learning to make ravioli from scratch with Lara, which we then had with our lunch! Visiting the garden was amazing, as we got a chance to learn about farming in Tuscany and see the summer produce, some of which we picked.

Suggestions:
- Ask for vegetarian food - meat costs extra (which you only find out at the end), and the vegetable platter is unbelievable!
- You can get there and back by taxi! We stressed out trying to choose between a very pricey car service or a very long bus ride, but for no reason. In the end, we took the train to Pisa, and got into a cab (there are lots of them, and they all have GPS's), which cost around 75 euros. On the way back, we asked Eli to call us a cab, which took us to the Pontedere train station, and only cost about 35 euros. Not cheap, but definitely better than the alternatives.

Kosher Wine Tasting Tuscany
Jul 2019 • Friends
Met Eli at the wine facility for our kosher wine tasting. He explained the process and took us through the production facility. Eli was a blast - so honest about what it takes to make kosher wines and to be in the industry. Tasted his wines and bought several bottles. Tours are by appointment only (11am or 5pm Sunday through Thursday) - April to November.

Great Wine, good food, and excellent company
Jul 2019 • Couples
We stopped here on our way from Sienna to Cinque Terra. Eli and Lara are doing a great job at presenting their delicious wine, combining it with locally sourced food, and a beautiful outdoor Tuscan ambiance. We would definitely come here again, and probably stay for a night or two. 2 hints, 1) be careful not to google map the winery because it is 15 min away from where the food/wine action is, and 2) If you are approaching from the south, do not take the 'quickest' route as it may lead you onto a narrow gravel path for part of the trip.

Italian Kosher Pasta Making Class & Lunch
Jul 2019 • Couples
My wife and I, along with 2 other couples, had a unique and amazing time with Eli & Lara. We started the morning truffle hunting with dogs about 25 minutes away. Followed by making pasta in the dairy kitchen. Finishing up around 2pm with table service outside actually eating the pasta we all made by hand. Their wines are also delicious. We paid $150 euro per person for all the activities, including lunch.

Highly recommended for all kosher travelers for an authentic Italian meal. They have 2 kitchens, and alternate dairy and meat.

Kosher Gem in Tuscany
Jun 2019 • Couples
My wife and I just finished a short (2 night) stay at Eli and Lara’s place in a rustic Tuscan village. The accommodations were lovely and the food and wine a rare experience for kosher travelers. The restaurant alternates daily between meat and dairy service, so we were able to sample both. Both dinners were excellent- as were the wines. A couple of standouts- the pasta with beef and tomatoes and the pasta with tuna were definitely the best pasta dishes I have ever tasted.
Finally, I can’t say enough about Eli and Lara and their incredible hospitality. We hope to be back again in the near future.

A Kosher Treasure in Italy
Aug 2018 • Couples
My wife and I went to Italy for our Honeymoon. We eat strictly kosher. We reviewed this place on Google. But when you actually get there, words aren't enough. Lara and Eli (the owners) were super friendly. The food, the wine, the vibe, it all was amazing!
Would recommend to anyone who is visiting Italy and has a car to go there.

One of a kind experience!
Oct 2018 • Friends
(Literally) the best food in town! We had such an unique experience with Eli and Lara. They are really turning this place into an amazing facility. Next time we go (which is a must), we are taking a cooking class with Lara because she is an amazing cook! The wine is very good too. Keep doing what your doing and I will be sure to tell all of my friends :)
