Taverna dei Barbi
Taverna dei Barbi
Already fifty years ago there were a great many visitors
to the Fattoria dei Barbi, and many of them asked
to be able to accompany their tasting of Brunello
with a taste of cured meats and cheeses,
maybe even with some roasts typical of the area
or a plate of hand-rolled pinci.
Thus the Taverna was created, where visitors could rest
after a tour of the cellars and taste
the dishes characteristic of Montalcino.
After more than half a century, the same custom is still being practiced at Taverna dei Barbi: on the tables outside or in front of the big fireplace at the heart of the dining room, dishes in the Tuscan and, specifically, Montalcino tradition can be tasted just as they were prepared long ago and even with a slightly modern touch.
Homemade pasta, sauces, soups, special meats accompanied by Fattoria dei Barbi wines enable visitors to live a unique experience and to enjoy the luxury of Tuscan simplicity, surrounded by the countryside and vineyards, in a rustic but elegant atmosphere.
Taverna dei Barbi is open to the public every day at lunch and dinner, except Tuesday evenings and Wednesdays.
Reservations for lunches and dinners can be made for private groups.
On request, exclusive lunchs or dinners in the Historic Cellars, among the centuries old barrels, with a custom or personalized menu based on historical private Cinelli Colombini family recipe book [The 1899 Elina Colombini recipe book] and dishes paired with wines from Fattoria dei Barbi vintages 1955 to 2011.
Open 12:00PM – 2:30PM | 7:30PM – 10:00PM Closed Tuesday evenings and Wednesdays
