I went with my family including a couple of kids under 10. We were well looked after as we were the only ones there. It's a small house with a separate room for around 10 where the friendly guide takes you through a selection of bottles, all for free. Of course after becoming slightly sizzled you end up buying a box.
The kids played in the yard- they did get a little bored but lasted the two hours without too much difficulty.
We all had a great time. It also does truffles and olive oil and ships around Europe.

This was our first visit to a vineyard. After a short tour of the vineyard and an explanation by Emanuela of the wine-making process, we had our first wine-tasting experience. As the weather was beautiful, we decided to be seated outdoors. We also had Meow...MoreThanks so much for your kind words! hope to see you again at Agricola Tamburini!!!

In 990 AD Sigeric, Bishop of Canterbury, went to Rome to receive the Pope the "pallium", symbol of the dignity of archbishop. Upon his return, he recorded in his diary the 80 stages ("submansiones") walked in as many days to get back from Rome to England. His diary ("Itinerarium Sigerici") is the first document of what would later be called the "Via Francigena", ie one of the three most important pilgrimage routes of the European Middle Ages (the two other are the ones to Santiago de Compostela and to Jerusalem ).
The twentieth "submansio" from Rome is called by Sigeric "Sce Mary Glan," that is precisely the current "Santa Maria a Chianni".
The church, with the hostel attached, goes back not to the ancient, almost mythical age of Sigeric; however, it dates back to the thirteenth century, and is striking for its simple Romanesque style.
Unfortunately, as we walked there we could see only the outside of the church. The interior, though in a holiday day, then of great tourist flow, could not be visited: the church was closed.
The most annoying side is that the staff of the hostel for the pilgrims, which recently was opened next to the church, claimed not be able to open up the church itself, because it was not within their competence, but within competence of the tourist office of the Gambassi City Council.
I believe that the financial and organizational work sustained to organize the hostel (as result of a collaboration between the bishop and the Municipality) is frustrated and to some extent undermined by this exasperated formalism ("not up to me to open the church").
I think it's clear then that my poor score is not about the church - an outstanding monument of the Middle Ages - but the way it is managed.

Villa Pillo is located in Gambassi Terme which is a beautiful area with some amazing views and landscapes. The most relaxing thing are all the vineyards that surround You while You are here. I have decided to buy a bottle of Villa Pillo and have it with some steak. Great combination! Well worth the visit, one of the nicest places run by really nice people:)) enjoy!

Pietralta is a small winery, striving for highest quality wines while emphasizing the specialness and uniqueness of their products. Unlike mass- produced wines made with mere technical correctness, Pietralta creates very special, personal wines, as a result of the connectivity of man to nature.
Devo essere nel film del mitico film di Mario Monicelli.
Chianti doc ottimo e bio, ma anche agriturismo, con arrosto di capriolo e piscina.
Non so da che parte cominciare.
La strada che corre sulle colline ondulate , "l'insegna" all'inizio dello sterrato che è una magnifica installazione di carri sovrapposti, poi i filari pettinati delle viti, l'uliveta, gli alberi frondosi intorno al casale, poco più giù le cantine, sculture e tele dipinte, e una stratificazione di cose belle dai fossili, ebbene sì il mare era di casa più o meno nel pleistocene e arando il terreno le grandi conchiglie tornano agli onori del mondo.
Una signora milanese doc e il marito, molto tedesco, trent'anni fa danno vita ad una loro utopia. Ora l'azienda può contare anche su Stephan che racchiude pragmaticità tedesca e versatilità italiana, ma che costanza ed eleganza!

Il posto sarebbe da cinque pallini, tenuto benissimo, il giardino è molto bello ed il presepe "enorme" è fatto molto bene. Il problema sono l'aria che si respira al suo interno. In altri posti vedi comunque i sacerdoti sorridere ed essere contenti delle persone che visitano i loro luoghi, mentre qua sembra di entrare in un posto dove non vogliono nessuno, se non i "soci" del santuario.

Sono stata una mattina di sabato in questo piccolo centro termale. Il posto è molto grazioso e inusuale. Il centro benessere non è grande ma molto curato nei dettagli e denota amore per i clienti. La vasca termale e idromassaggio ha una bella veranda grazie alla quale il sole risplende all'interno. Belli e super puliti sia bagno turco con ottimi olii essenziali che la sauna. Riposante l angolo relax con tisane.... Il centro estetico molto bello, i massaggi fatti con olii caldi .... Ottimi anche i loro prodotti cosmetici. Personale gentile e disponibile. Se si prenota, si trova anche poca gente. Lo consiglio. Ci tornerò. Patrizia operatrice, è una bravissima fisioterapista

An interesting place to visit passing by via Francigena!! Best with a guide of the area, well signposted, in the middle of a beautiful Tuscan forest.
