Incredible and Unique Experience!
Mar 2020
My girlfriend and I were driving around Montalcino and just stumbled upon this vineyard from a road sign. We decided to drive up and check it out. Unfortunately, the vineyard was closed for the day. However, things turned around. I wandered into their bottling area and begin interacting with a gentleman who happened to work there. I was just peaking around and was disappointed that it was closed. Eventually, the owner, Mr. Parisi, walked in to see what was going on. He was so sweet and genuine. Since, it was closed we wanted to buy a bottle of wine to try at a later date. Mr. Parisi hand signed the bottle which had a hand painted label as well! Super cute! Mr. Parisi ended up giving us a quick tour of the property which we did not expect! It was such a lovely experience and so sweet of him to do for us! My girlfriend and I walked away from the whole experience blown away. He told us to come back in a few years and we hope to do that!

Dear Guest, thank you very much for your kind words! We use the period of January and February to rest a little bit and then start again the season; also, these months are resting period for our vineyards too, and we like to respect the circle of nature by giving them time to breath and regain strenght after the harvest. We are sorry that you couldn't have the intire experience in NostraVita but for sure we will be happy to welcoming you! We look forward to meet you. Best regards, NostraVita Montalcino.

Not just a wine tasting, a magnificent tour of one's greatest passions
Aug 2019
I am so glad we found NostraVita for a wine tour/tasting. We were completely blown away with the property and meeting the incredible artist and wine maker, Annibale. He took so much time to show us around his property. It is evident the passion and care he takes in his vineyard and it directly translates to the quality of the amazing Rosso and Brunello NostraVita creates. I can not say enough wonderful things about our experiences, It was one of our most memorable parts and special parts from our vacation.

A beautiful, genuine expression of wine and hospitality
Jun 2019 • Family
What an impressive place and a sincerely gracious host and gifted winemaker, craftsman, artisan in its proprietor, Annibale Parisi. This is a small, family-owned vineyard just south of Montalcino, where Mr. Parisi not only makes great wine, but works as an artist himself. His family's passion for beauty and originality are evident all around. Additionally, he encourages other artists to live, work and create on the grounds, and their work as well as his own can be seen all over the property. My entire family was moved by the Parisi family's warmth and hospitality and the time that they spent with us - leisurely and unhurried. Hats off to our sommelier/guide, Alberto Martini, as well, who stumbled across NostraVita by accident one day when he became lost in the countryside on his bicycle and stopped to ask for directions.

A magical vineyard experience! Very small vineyard tended by the family. That makes for an extra special tour of the vines and process.

The father purchased the property with a dream, and he has made it come true.

Breathtaking wine tasting “room”. Just perfection.

The father is an artist and hand paints each label.

Don’t miss this one.

Perfect day and wonderful wine
May 2019 • Couples
Our tour guide that we have been using for years knows that in a wine tasting, we look more for an experience that just tasting some one. In bringing us to Nostra Vita, he accomplished the mission. I won't go into artistry as other reviewers have done as they are correct, but I will comment on the people and the wine. They are all exceptional. We had a wonderful time touring the vinyard and then just talking with Annibele and Guiditti. Oh yeah, lets not forget that the wine was excellent as well. Definitely worth the visit and looking forward to tasting their wines in the comfort of my house as well.

What a wonderful experience!
Oct 2018 • Couples
My new husband and I were lucky enough to discover the NostraVita winery and the family that cultivates it. We were made welcome, tried the amazing wines and even got to paint a label. We came away with a new appreciation for the caring effort that the Parisi tribe puts into everything from being mindful of the energy of their area to creating the art and wines that come from this unique place. We highly recommend this experience - it has been one of our best.

You will be amazed when you visit Nostra Vita - meaning "Our Life"
Sep 2018
Annibele Parisi and his family have created something quite unique here - a vineyard in the most beautiful situation near Montalcino, where nature, art and love combine to create something very special indeed. Not only do they produce lovely wines, but the whole property is a reflection of the love for nature and art that Annibele has. You will come away infected with his enthusiasm for creativity and his love for his family.

so much more than a vineyard
Oct 2018
We have visited many wineries but this was probably one of our top experiences ever. NostraVita (our life) is much more than just a winery. The family has a wonderful story of starting with a small piece of land in Montalcino before it became such a prestigious location to fulfilling their dream of not only developing delicious wine, but creating art and a place for other artists to visit and display their works. We toured the farm, saw the grapes and the beautiful artwork then tasted wines overlooking the valley in a warm, enclosed clear tasting room. The family was so gracious and warm and made us feel like we were visiting friends. A wonderful experience!

Wine Tasting Experience
Sep 2018 • Friends
The most amazing wine tasting experience you will ever have and yes near Montalcino, Brunello wine.
Nostra Vita - “Our Life”. The Parisi family is beyond wonderful, talented, loving and make incredible wine🍷👍
Daughter, Giuditta was our hostess and was so informative and gave us a tour and history of land and her fathers story. Father, Annibale is another Michaelanglo. He paints the line labels and paints the Magnum bottles which are beautiful. He works with wood and an engineer👍. Talent galore👏👏
We loved the wine but we were moved by how this is a family affair🍷
You gotta go!

I think I met Leonardo Di Vinci
Sep 2018 • Couples
We visited the winery have heard about it from another traveler my wife met on the plane home from Italy a couple years ago. We had the same guide she recommended and arranged the visit several months ago. We have been to many wineries from Alto Adige to Umbria to Tuscany. Some are small producers 100,000 per year to some that produced over a million bottles. This is by far the best ,most unique, and special winery we have visited and probably will ever encounter. The owner and his family are the nicest people we have met at a winery. Annibale and Guiditti and her mother Elena were very gracious and extremely proud of what they have accomplished with their wine. They produce about 10,000 bottles per year. The wines we tasted were phenomenal!!
Besides all the excellent wine Annibale is a true artist from wood carving, sculpturing, book binding ect. His artistic talents seem limitless, a true Italian artist. You will have to visit some day to really appreciate what they have done on this hilltop!
