Born and raised in Tuscany, I grew up with wine! I became always more passionate about the enogastronomy, therefore I decided to deepen my knowledge about it attending the Sommelier Course and also a Master Course in International Marketing of Wine. After few years of experience in another winery in Montalcino, I am now the Hospitality Manager for Podere Le Ripi since 2017. I take care of desiging the experiences for our guests and I lead their journey through the estate and the tasting of our wines. My goal is to make them feeling our real sense of place, appreciating our culture and living memorable moments. I cannot wait to welcome you here and show you around!

Dit is echt een topervaring: we werden ontvangen op de wijngaard door de wijnmaker Sebastian himself die ons rondleidde door de wijngaard en de stockage, stap voor stap legde hij het proces uit en we eindigden met een wijnproeverij met heel wat uitleg. Deze biodynamische boerderij is de toekomst van Brunello en het jonge team heeft heel veel potentieel, spreekt perfect Engels en gaf ons zelfs tips voor restaurants in Firenze waar we gingen overnachten. Wij komen hier zeker nog terug met de auto!

What a unique vineyard, the location as well as the design of the winery is very different to anywhere else. We had an informative wine tasting and walk around - would recommend doing this tour

My wife and I toured the vineyard on our honeymoon. The vineyard is tucked on a hillside not far from Montalcino. The views of the surrounding countryside are very beautiful. Our host, Sofia, was welcoming and very knowledgeable about wine and the story of the vineyard. Our tasting took place in the pagoda where we had a great view of the vineyard. The wine was excellent and my wife and I were happy to take home a few bottles.

A very enjoyable tour learning about biodynamic wine. This vineyard is beautiful and our guide Sophia gave a lot of insight into the winemaking techniques before we did the tasting. The Bonsai wine is pricey but impressive - well worth the tasting at the very least.
