We chose to visit this winery based on the Tripadvisor reviews, but unfortunately our visit did not meet our expectations. The booking process was easy, but not necessarily friendliest. The place was within an easy reach from Lucca. We took a taxi.
We had a lovely arrival and were greeted with warmth. We waited for a while some other guests to arrive and had a small introduction of the winery and wine making process. Until this everything worked smoothly. But then.. some more guests started arriving, group by group and things started to get unorganized. We had booked a six wines tasting with appertizers, but were asked atleast four times how many wines had we booked. The wines and snacks were served in an ok pace, but you could not call the event tasting. It was just drinkin six glasses of wine, which were not introduced except the grapes were mentioned. Also the appertizers were not as good quality we expected.
Unfortunately we were left somewhat disappointed. It seemed that there were too many guests and the hosts were unable to handle the service. We also felt a bit pressured to write reviews and purchase their products. We cannot recommend Fattoria al Dotto. There are plenty of other opportunitues in the area.
