It is my pleasure to thank you again for our wonderful visit to Castello Banfi. Everything about our visit was outstanding. The staff and the service was five star from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. The meals at Sala dei Grappoli were some of the best we have every had in all of our travels. The wine tasting dinner was extraordinary! Our room was spacious and very comfortable. We hated to leave! We purchased three cases of wine from the wine store and they arrived promptly to us back home in the US. Every time we drink a bottle we will remember fondly our visit to Tuscany. Very best regards,Joan Cerone

The combination of the professional, friendly staff, the property, the ambiance, the Banfi wines, our accommodations - everything was wonderful! We will tell our friends about it as well as thank Earl Davis for recommending your facility to us. We also enjoyed our tour of the winery. It is so high-tech and high quality. We look forward to drinking your wine for years. With each sip, we will think of our Banfi experience.Regards, Susan and Stevan

I wanted to send you a brief note to tell you what a wonderful time we had during our short stay at Castello Banfi and to thank you and your entire staff for making that stay so enjoyable. From the moment we checked in, where Luciano was so welcoming, to our dinner, both nights, where Mirco was fun and yet so professional and the food was so delicious, to our daughter’s horseback ride…which she loved…and finally to our absolutely fabulous cooking class and lunch with Domenico…which was truly the highlight of our time there. What a kind, patient and talented man/chef he is. You must be so proud to work in such a extraordinary place and to have such a wonderful staff. Also, my husband and I want to thank you so much for the bottle of Summus that you left for us with reception. We had wanted to order a case of it to send back to the States but did not have time to arrange for that before we left, so you can imagine how thrilled we were to have a bottle to take back home with us. We wanted to save it for a special occasion but couldn’t wait, so we opened it the night after we returned home and talked about our stay at Castello Banfi when we were drinking it. It was as good as we remembered! Once again, thank you for everything. Please extend our appreciation and thanks to everyone at Castello Banfi. Melissa
You must be so proud to work in such a extraordinary place and to have such a wonderful staff.

Thank you so much for such a wonderful stay, We had a wonderful time. We have traveled the world extensively and have stayed in Tuscany before..THIS WAS THE BEST EVER! Everything was perfect--food, service, pool, bikes, wine tour, museum and a beautiful accomodation. You have made our onward journey difficult as no other hotel has met your standards and we now describe ourselves as having been "Banfied" meaning without Banfi we are not liking our other hotels. We live near and often travel to California wine country so we will tell our friends to stay with you and we certainly hope to return. Grazie mille. Carrie and Robert
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SUCH A WONDERFUL STAY

Dear Juan: Hello from Los Angeles! Sohail and I wanted to send you a note and thank you again for helping make an already magical stay at Banfi all the more wonderful through your warmth and generous hospitality. We are still reeling from all the beauty of your sublime property and miss the delicious food and exquisite wines that we enjoyed daily, thanks to Domenico and your talented staff. Our children talk constantly about how much fun they had by the pool, how kind Mirco was to them at the restaurant, and how much they loved playing with Barbarino the cat. Thank you for the gifts of olive oil and wine--a beautiful reminder or our time in Montalcino. Please contact us if you are ever in Los Angeles. We would like so much to see you again. Sending you our warmest wishes, Noushin and Sohail
