It is clear that he loves it and knows "every single grass"... More

We enjoyed our visit to Podere Il Cocco so much we returned a few days later. Giacomo is so passionate about the vineyard and every part of making the wine. Stephano was gracious and helpful. We will return.

Giacomo delivered a very personal, interesting and educational wine tasting session. Great to see how fully invested the whole family are in making the best possible quality wine they can. It was an opportunity to buy wine rather than a sell. We ordered some wine to be delivered in the UK. This arrived promptly and extremely well packed. We would... More
