The Places

1st Winery – PODERE LE RIPI

“Owned by Francesco Illy, of Illy coffee fame, Podere Le Ripi is one of the most elegant biodynamic vineyards in Montalcino. Be sure to visit the new cellar”. (Danielle Pergament, New York Times)

A boutique winery with 54 hectares of forest, vineyards and centenary olive trees. An uncontaminated soil and a marvelous vegetal variety surrounded by a breathtaking view. Visit the Bonsai vineyard, the densest in the world with 62.500 plants/H. Walk through the Golden Cellar, built with the ancient construction techniques using over than 750.000 natural clay bricks.

Finally, taste an outstanding selection of our best vintages, including the Bonsai wine.

Le Ripi – Cantina Aurea

Lunch Restaurant SILENE

Il Silene has a long history that began in the early 20th century. The restaurant has strictly maintained the ancient Tuscany culinary tradition based on the use of the best seasonal products grown in harmony with nature.

The food is delicious and the atmosphere warm and elegant. Roberto Rossi, chef/patron at Silene’s, was born and grew up in Tuscany and he will accompany you in this experience. Highly recommend for truffle lovers.


Between the avant-garde and tradition
