Overview

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. Everything we cook comes from our own vegetable garden and orchards. We also produce our own extra virgin olive oil, cheeses and jams.

It was with real excitement that we seized the opportunity to eat kosher for shabbath in Tuscany and given the review we were expecting a real treat (extravaganza as advertised on the website). Unfortunately that turned out to be the classical kosher food pitfall :...More

We came there when they were bottling, for a delicious lunch. It is named for Lara's grandfather. She is a wonderful cook. They hope to expand next year. Definitely worth stopping in- you should probably make reservations.

Came here on one of our stops on a Western Mediterranean cruise. I live in Los Angeles where we have many options and frankly, excellent kosher food. Traveling around Europe, I’ve come to expect inferior quality, even from higher end establishments. The food and service...More
